Puppy Chow Popcorn

You guys. I have serious issues. 
{promising start to a post, I know.}

You all know the band "fun.", right? I'm TOTALLY OBSESSED. They're super cool and hipster and awesome. In one of the videos though, the guy was wearing something that resembled jeggings. It was a little weird and gross. But other than that- SO COOL! They're music is fun too! Especially "We Are Young"… My word, seriously can't stop listening to it. Like, I listened to it about 10 times while I was doing school today. I'm not even joking! Usually music makes it harder for me to concentrate on whatever I'm doing. But I got 94% on my English test. So thank you fun. !!! 

Aside from my music issue, I have a food issue. A couple weeks ago, I wanted popcorn. Ok, cool, right? Then I figured "What the heck. Everything's better with chocolate!" So boom- chocolate happened. And you OBVIOUSLY can't have chocolate without peanut butter. The two are like BFFS!  BUT WAIT… Puppy chow has chocolate and peanut butter! So after much debating, I melted some peanut butter and chocolate, poured it over the popcorn, tossed it with some powdered sugar. And holy gosh, something amazing happened at that moment. 

Behold! I present you with puppy chow popcorn!


I mean, you guys obviously know what popcorn is. Or at least, I hope you do. And you know what puppy chow is… Why not combine the two! With only  4 ingredients, you can whip this treat up in mere minutes… WHICH is a little scary. But hey, it's worth the love-handles. 


Puppy Chow Popcorn

12 c. popped popcorn
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1 3/4 c. powdered sugar

In a small bowl or coffee mug, melt the chocolate and peanut butter; about 15 seconds. Stir until smooth. In a large bowl, pour the chocolate/peanut butter over the popcorn. Add in the powdered sugar. Toss until everything is evenly coated. 

Pin It!
