Muddy Buddy Popcorn

Hey guys! I’m Shawn and I blog over at I Wash…You Dry! When Wendy told me about October being National Popcorn Month, I was super excited at the idea of it being completely appropriate to eat all kinds of tasty popcorn every single day of October.

{It’s practically un-American of you if you don’t.}

Any who- then she asked me if I would come up with a recipe, and of course I said yes!

Muddy Buddy Popcorn

Who doesn’t love Muddy Buddies?! It’s the combination of creamy peanut butter and melty chocolate drizzled all over Chex cereal, then coated with a nice helping of powdered sugar.

Well this is National Popcorn Month, not National Cereal Month…so obviously we have to coat some popcorn in peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar!

Muddy Buddy Popcorn

Pop 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels in 3 tbsp of oil. I use coconut oil cause it’s so much lighter tasting and better for you.

In a separate bowl combine some chocolate chips and peanut butter. Microwave for a minute then stir until smooth. Add a little vanilla and stir that in too.

Drizzle the chocolate mixture over the popcorn and gently stir to coat evenly.

Place a third of the popcorn in a gallon zip-close bag and add 1 cup of powdered sugar. Zip it closed and shake to coat the popcorn with the powdered sugar. Spread the coated popcorn out on some wax paper to cool, then repeat the process for the remaining popcorn.

This is some really addictive stuff right here.

Before you know it, your fingers and face will be coated in powdered sugar from the uncontrollable urge to stuff your face with this chocolaty goodness.

I sure hope you guys like this so much that you’ll come say hi to me over at my blog! I love to create recipes just as fun as this one that are simple to make and easy to clean up. So come on over! :)

Muddy Buddy Popcorn

1/2 cup popcorn kernels
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 cup chocolate chips (dark chocolate or vegan chips)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups powdered sugar

Place oil and popcorn kernels in the bottom of a heavy bottomed pan and turn the heat to medium-high. Cover with a lid, but leave it open slightly to allow steam to escape. Once the popping of the kernels has stopped remove pan from heat and pour popcorn into a large bowl.

In a separate bowl combine the chocolate chips and peanut butter. Microwave for 1 minute, remove from microwave and stir. Microwave an additional 20 seconds and stir again. Keep doing this until the chocolate and peanut butter are smooth and creamy. Stir in the vanilla.

Pour the chocolate mixture over the popcorn and stir gently to coat.

Pour 1/3 of the popcorn into a gallon sized zipclose bag and pour in 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Shake gently to coat all the popcorn. Pour onto a sheet of wax paper to cool. Repeat with the remaining popcorn and powdered sugar.

Store in a covered container.
