Poppy Chow

Remember the old Chex Mix powdered sugar snack... Puppy Chow? Well, I saw this here via The Pioneer Woman. It is the same concept, but with popcorn. And girls... watch out this stuff is yummy!

Poppy Chow

9 cups of popcorn
1/2 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 of peanut butter or 1/2 bag of peanut butter chips
1/2 stick of butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1-1/2 cup powdered sugar
Melt chocolate, peanut butter, and butter in microwave. Stir in vanilla. Put popcorn in large bowl and pour in chocolate mixture. Stir until popcorn is covered evenly. Sprinkle in powder, stir until everything looks snowy white. Lay coated popcorn out on wax paper to 'dry'
WARNING: We ate 1/2 a large cookie jar in under 15 minutes without the kiddos help! However, it is so easy and since ya only used 1/2 of everything... in the same amount of time, I can make another batch! I am thinking about trying the cinnamon chips instead of the peanut butter... then again why fix something this yummy, huh?

Let's go make something,
