Ingredients
  • 6.5 cups air popped popcorn (or use one 3 oz bag microwave popcorn)
  • 2 cups mini pretzels
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 2/3 cup Reese's Pieces candy
Peanut Butter Sauce:
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Add popcorn, pretzels and candy corn to an extra large mixing bowl (I reserve the Reese's pieces until the very end so that they don't melt).

  2. In medium saucepan over medium heat add honey and sugar and stir well to combine.

  3.  Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring. 

  4. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth. Stir in vanilla. 

  5. Slowly pour HALF of the warm sauce over the popcorn mix and use a long wooden spoon to gently toss and coat the mixture. Judge how much more peanut butter sauce you want and drizzle as you gently stir the mixture (you may not use it all, depending on preference). 

  6. Add Reese's Pieces and toss to combine. Allow to cool for a few minutes before eating. Enjoy!
