salted peanut & butterscotch puppy chow popcorn

There's some foods that I can just have a bite of or even totally pass up {emphasis on SOME. Not many. At all. But SOME.}. And THEN there's things that I make and can't seem to stop eating. Like there's a magnet constantly attracting my hand to the bowl and I have no self control whatsoever. It's like... involuntary. Isn't there a name for that? Uhh. This goodness is one of those things. Awhile ago, the sugar angels of above {my brain.} sent me a vision of morphing puppy chow and popcorn into one super addicting snack that turned out to be one of the most popular recipes on the blog. Ahhmahhgahhh that was good. I've made that stuff countless times and my love continued to grow, BUT I was getting ready to switch it up. 

I'd have to say, aside from the obvious chocolate and peanut butter, butterscotch and peanut butter are up there on the awesome scale. It's the perfect combo of sweet and salty... My favorite! Add some salted peanuts and powdered sugar into the mix and HOLY GOSH, you're toast, man. In a good way. Please, just prepare yourself to lose all control of your eating habits when you get within, oh... 10 feet of this popcorn. 

This snack is way quick and easy! You can have it from microwave to mouth in about 5 minutes, especially if you use microwave popcorn instead of stovetop. Whatever floats your boat! Combine some butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a mug, pop it in the microwave, and stir it up until it's all smooth and creamy and dreamy. Abstain from dipping your face in it. We don't want to make a mess here. Pour that greatness on top of the popcorn, throw in some peanuts and powdered sugar, toss it around in a big 'ol bowl, and prepare to be amazed. 

The end.
