Make a batch of sticky peanut butter and honey popcorn

‘If you like peanut and honey and getting caught in the rain..’ OK, fine so that’s not how the song goes but this recipe is so catchy, it may as well be. With all the excitement around our new Severin Popcorn Maker, we cooked up a sticky and delicious batch of peanut butter and honey popcorn. A cracker combo, this.

The Severin Popcorn Maker really is a gem and if freshly popped corn in just under three minutes is your thing, giving this guy a spin won’t disappoint. Best bit? Because you’re not cooking it on the stove, there’s no oil, so if you’re trying to cut out the grease, you’ve found a snack time winner.

Ingredients (makes 2–3 cups popcorn):

80ml honey
3 Tbsp dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp peanut butter (or use macadamia nut butter)
Sprinkling of sea salt
2½ cups popcorn (We made ours in this nifty Severin Popcorn Maker but you can make your popcorn any way you like.)
1⁄2 cup peanuts (if using salted, don’t add salt to sauce)

Method:

1. Place the honey and brown sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and allow the sugar to melt. Stir in the vanilla extract and peanut butter and salt.
2. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Mix the popcorn and peanuts together in a large bowl and pour the melted peanut sauce over the top.
3. Toss to coat. Place on the baking tray and bake for 5–10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool slightly before serving.

The popcorn will stay slightly sticky, so eat it soon after cooking for best results.
