No Frills Manstyle Peanut Butter Popcorn

Hey. This is Katie's husband, so if my post is sparse on words like 'cute' and 'cuddly' and 'frilly', you understand why.

I'm hijacking Katie's blog to bring you a movie-night treat that's easy but tasty. To give you an idea of how easy this is, you need to understand that the 3 things I make best are instant pancakes, cereal (Cocoa Puffs is my piece de resistance), and Five Guy's.

So whip out your old fashioned popcorn popper, and let's get started.

The ingredients you need are:

1/2 c light corn syrup
1/4 c sugar 
1/2 c super chunky (or not) peanut butter
8 c popcorn

Light up your stove with a medium sized sauce pan. Combine the light corn syrup and sugar and bring it to a slow boil while stirring it constantly. Constantly is the key word here. If you aren't stirring, it means you're burning. Keep stirring until the sugar dissolves. At that point, you can turn off the heat on the stove and add the peanut butter to the sugar mixture. The peanut butter will thin out so it's easy to pour. Spread it out over the popcorn and stir it up. The whole process takes about 10 minutes. If you're feeling exotic, you can add nuts or candy pieces. Katie says it's not complete until chocolate is involved, so you can also drizzle some melted chocolate over the top if that's what you crave.
