This recipe came out great. I would definitely suggest baking the popcorn on a cookie sheet covered with foil, in a 200 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes to crisp it up a bit. Otherwise it is extremely gooey. Also, I made two batches for a crowd and had better luck on my second batch where I used one bag of popcorn for the amount of sauce the recipe says should be used for 2 bags. I think it was much easier to coat and came out yummier with twice the sauce. Also, I added slightly more peanut butter for the second batch, but I am a peanut butter lover. This recipe would be great to add salted peanuts to.Read More

I used all natural fluff instead of the marshmallows. I also used air popped popcorn. It was great right away, but I thought it needed a little crisping in the oven. I threw it in for 15 minutes at 300 and stirred it occasionally. AWESOME! I also sprinkled it with a little kosher salt after it was done. The salty/sweet combination definitely worked for my pregnancy cravings!
amazing recipe! i used buttered microwave popcorn and it worked great. two tips: definitely dry the popcorn at 200 for 30 minutes (tossing every 10) in an oval turkey roasting pan. after the oven, let it sit for 10 minutes or so and then put into serving bowl. do not let it sit too long as it hardens quickly. also, you can put on latex gloves to help you toss this more evenly. next time, i'll add mini m&ms. it was a great party hit. thanks.
I have made this a couple times now. First time was to fill X-mas tins as party gifts over the holidays, and now for a summer barbecue/picnic. It's very easy, but as others have suggested, it needs to be baked to prevent soggy, gooey popcorn. I baked it at 250 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring once in the middle. The first time I made it, I didn't think it had enough of a peanut butter taste (tasted too much like caramel corn with a subtle peanut butter flavor, which was fine, but I wanted something more flavorful and different from the caramel corn I had also made). So, the second time I made it, I increased the peanut butter to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cup of peanuts too, and it turned out perfect! I have popped my own popcorn both times with coconut oil (only the BEST oil to use, and it gives the most amazing flavor). If you like chocolate and peanut butter flavors together, you can drizzle melted chocolate over the mix after it cools, or try what I did, which was to make the Chocolate Popcorn recipe from this site that was submitted by sueb, leave out the peanuts in it, and after both batches cool, mix them together. It makes for a fun mix! Thanks for sharing!
A masterpiece!! I used 3/4c peanut butter and spread the mixture out on two cookie sheets to "dry up" a bit. I then melted some chocolate chips in a ziploc bag in the microwave and cut the corner tip and "drizzled" the pocpcorn with chocolate.... Thank you!
Good flavor with just the right amount of peanut butter. Not to overwhelming. But I feel this recipe is only worth it, if you go the extra step and put it in the oven to dry it out and crisp it up for a half and hour or so. When you let it cool, which is very hard to do, it turns into a wonderful carmel corn. I love to make this recipe with the "microwave popcorn" recipe from this site. Gotta try it. If you don't do the oven step, then it is just too gooey and sticky and I would only give it two stars.
I adapted the original recipe a bit to make Caramel Peanut Butter Popcorn. But I was afraid of sugar shock or butter overload, so I cut those ingredients way down. I put 15 individually wrapped caramels in my bowl, and melted them in the microwave with a little water. Then I added slightly more than 1/4 cup peanut butter, 19 marshmallows (didn't have 20!), only 2 T butter, and only 1/4 c. of light brown sugar. I also added walnuts. I also followed the suggestion of crisping it in the oven on 200 F for 20 minutes in foil-lined pans. Yum! I could see drizzling this with almond bark next time, or adding chocolate chips or another kind of nut. I did use 2 bags of microwave popcorn, and thought that it was the perfect amount of coating, while still letting the popcorn flavor come through.
I added natural peanut butter, and non hydrodgenated margarine. I also popped my own popcorn. I put all of the ingredients in the microwave at once. When everything was melted I poured in the popcorn. I would definitely make it again.
This was wonderful! I used air popped popcorn since I didn't have Microwave popcorn and it worked great. I also cooked the mixure on the stove and not the microwave, cooking it a little longer like you would for candy makes the mixture harder more and made it less gooey. We loved it!
To cut down on the sugar I used natural peanut butter (increased to 1/2 cup) and reduced the brown sugar to a scant 1/2 cup. The marshmallows provide plenty of sugar. If you're using an air popper, this covered one popper's worth. (1/2 cup unpopped kernels)
I love this. I was alittle worried that it might be too peanut buttery- but its not. So good. I did put it in the oven on 200 degrees for 25 min. Otherwise its pretty gooey
I thought the concept of this recipie was awesome. I have made it twice now. The first time I made it I followed the instructions to a T and followed it up in the oven for 30 minutes at the suggestion of others. It was good. The second time I cooked the sauce on the stove. I added all the ingredients at once (even the pbutter). I upped the peanut butter to 3/4 cup and I used 30 large marshmellows. Cooked it over med low heat to boiling and boiled one minute. Poured sauce over 20 cups of stovetop popcorn. Baked 300 degrees for 30 minutes stirring every 10. Awesome, crispy, melt in your mouth. peanutbuttery popcorn. Finished with a touch of kosher salt too. SOOO GOOD!
My husband and I enjoyed this. Instead of cooking the peanut butter mixture in the microwave, cooked on the stove. Brought mixture to a boil for several minutes, stirring continuously. Removed from heat and stirred in 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp vanilla. Baked at 200 for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Turned out onto waxed paper to cool. Definitely let popcorn cool COMPLETELY. The popcorn that had only cooled for about 5 minutes was kind of like a rice crispy treat, but after 20 minutes was harder like caramel corn.
This is very good. I used real popped popcorn (trying to economize). At first I thought it was going to be too marshmallow-ey for me because I am not a big fan of marshmallows but the taste of marshmallows seemed to mellow down. I did bake for 20 minutes or maybe a little more. I decided it would be better with a little more salt so I added a very small amount - maybe 1/4 tsp. I bet peanut butter varies in sodium level, though, so taste it before you add any. I think I will try it with crunchy peanut butter next time and I may toss some chocolate chips in after baking and then stir to let them melt around on the popcorn. I think I may send some of this in to my granddaughter's class for snack (they don't have any peanut allergies, thank goodness). UPDATE: I realized after writing this that the microwave popcorn would be salted - that's why I had to add salt when I used regular, natural popcorn.
I'm giving this four stars because it is really good, however I feel that the user's comments really improve it. I doubled the peanut butter and baked it after coating for an hour at 250, stirring every 15 minutes. It was lovely!
What a yummy treat. I too used a jar of mellow fluff. After mixing it up I lined a BIG roasting pan with that wonderful nonstick aluminum foil. I "baked" the mixture for about 30 minutes on 200°, turning every 10 minutes or so. I let cool and then I dumped the popcorn into a holiday tin. Everyone loved this recipe. Comfort food at its best
Awesome recipe! We were having a graduation party and came up short on desserts (aside from the sheet cake) I wanted to put out something sweet but something different than the cookies/cupcakes. This would have done the trick if it made it to the party! I made this only a few hours before everyone started to arrive and it was gone before our first guest came. While I followed the recipe I kind of played a guessing game on measurements and it still turned out great. I personally recommend crisping it in the oven while my family enjoyed it either way. Hands down yummy. Thank you for a such an easy addition to my recipe box!
This is GREAT! It is also very addictive! Made as stated with no changes whatsoever and had no problem with it being too soggy.
Super quick and easy - my husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. Next time I'll try a variation with air-popped popcorn to make it a little healthier, but it was definitely great tasting with microwave popcorn!
I like it. Just not as much as my bf did. I think it needs to definately be baked...maybe have some pretzels, cheese popcorn, or peanuts mixed in. Easy snack so I would make it again.
I used air popped popcorn (probably about the equivalent of 2 1/2 bags), 200 small marshmallows, 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter, and a good dollop of crunchy peanut butter as well. Next time I would decrease the brown sugar, since we found it to be quite rich. Also, I would recommend crisping it up as others have said, unless you want to eat it with a spoon.
Great recipe for the kids to create. I liked the marshmallow addition in this recipe. I give this four stars only because I found I had to make some extra sauce to give all the popcorn a good coat. I added in a little extra peanut butter to ensure a great peanut butter taste-and some roasted peanuts. I transfered to a 13x9 baking tin and baked at 350 for 10 minutes to harden up a bit. I stuck the bowl in hot soapy water for 10 minutes for easy clean-up. Will make again- a great addition to family movie night.
I made this with regular machine-popped popcorn, added 1/3 c peanut butter and dried in the oven as others suggested. It hardens quickly at room temp but you can 'soften' it back up in the microwave at 50 % or again in low-temp oven, even the next day.
Really good! I also baked it to crisp it up and tossed it with some Reece's PB chips after it cooled. The kids gobbled it up (of course)!
OH MY HEAVENS! This is amazing!!!!! If you are hungry for something sweet and crunchy this is it!!!!!
This is my go-to snack for my family. My husband and kids LOVE it. I use less brown sugar and less marshmallows and LOTS of extra peanut butter. Since I air-pop, I add about 2 teaspoons of salt to the mix...otherwise it comes out tasting really bland. This time I also added a little vanilla extract to the mix...we will have to see how it comes out (it is currently baking) It also makes the house smell good when baking!
Not my favorite version. I'm always disappointed when I make something ooey and gooey like this and it doesn't satisfy.
I love this and so does my family! Super easy and delicious! :)
Amazing. We made a second batch and drizzled chocolate over it!! YUMMY!!
I gave it 5 stars WITH the following changes as suggested:I added a half cup of peanut butter rather than the suggested quarter cup. I also added half a cup of peanuts and baked at 200 degrees for 30 minutes stirring every 10 minutes. My DH and I could not keep our hands off it!
With the changes others posted about baking afterwards and using more PB this is a 5 star recipe!
Added chocolate and it came out 5 stars worthy. It's good without, but the flavor is too one dimensional. Reduced the sugar to (approx.) 1/2 cup, the peanut butter very slightly, and added 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate. Just the perfect amount without overpowering.
This is wonderful! I used two bags of Natural Popcorn, one helpful hint: remove the un-popped kernels before setting the popped popcorn aside, in two separate bowls (easier to stir two bowls than ONE big bowl). :) Also I threw in a couple of handfuls of Cocktail Peanuts into the 2 bowls of popcorn. Poured only half of the topping over each bowl of popcorn at a time and only baked each bowl one at a time, at 250 for 15 minutes, stirring every 5. (don't forget to spray cookie sheets with non-stick cooking spray) Also used a Whisk to stir the marshmallow topping mix, every minute while it melted, helped break up the marshmallows easier than the wooden spoon I was using at first. Hope this helps!
YUM! I never would have thought of peanut butter and popcorn together, but it works!
I made this for an election night party and it was gone before the polls closed. Definitely a keeper. Passed the husband test. I added 1/2 teas. salt to the candy mixture and and a cup of salted peanuts while mixing the popcorn and mixture together. I cooked the candy mixture on low heat on top of a stove burner using a simmer plate. I highly recommend that you bake this as mentioned in other reviews. I baked mine at 200 degrees removing to stir the popcorn every 15 minutes for an hour. UPDATE: This year I used the microwave and I won't be doing it on the stovetop anymore. Easy Peasy.
I also doubled the peanut butter and baked it at 200 to dry it out.
SUPER EASY AND FAST!!! Exactly what I wanted in a great football watching, pumpkin carving snack!! Thank you and I did add a little more pb to the mix b/c we like it like that. I heated it in the oven at 200 degrees for about 20 min and tossed some for extra crunch.
I have to say that this was a hit. The only think I would change is that i would make sure I filter out all the old maids. . . i also followed the reveiews and baked at 220 degrees for 30 minutes!
I literally am eating this RIGHT NOW... This was the first time I made it and forgot to look over the comments before cooking so, yes it is a little soggy so I would definitely recommend trying to bake it first before adding the sauce. Although, for a quick late night snack this is just perfect soggy or not!
I had this at a party last night and was so amazed I found the recipe and made it today! Sooooo good!!!!!! I kept it in the oven for 30 min at 250, stirring every 10 and it came out perfect!
Best peanut butter caramel corn ever!! I love peanut butter so I used 1/2C. and added dry roasted peanuts. I also baked at 250 for about 35minutes to crisp it up. Wonderful!
Good, my family enjoyed it!!
It's AWESOME! 1st - We used butter instead of margarin and 2 tbls extra PB 2nd - It was gooey, so we naturally made them into popcornballs 3rd - half we baked like the other recommendations Final conclusion: Gooey is great for balls, but cooked is better for either.
This was pretty good! I would make more coating next time. Mixed it with Chocolate Popcorn from this site!
Made 1/2 cup air popped corn with 2 tsp canola oil and 1/2 tsp salt. Melted 20 large marshmallows, 1/2 cup peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons butter in microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Poured this over popcorn and mixed quickly. It was great this way, plenty sweet with no extra sugar added! My daughter's new favorite!
I altered the recipe a bit too - I used marshmallow fluff and low cal peanut butter. Also I used 1/4 c of butter and sugar free peanut butter syrup in lieu of brown sugar. Baked 350 for 8 minutes and was perfect! Nice and crispy with lots of flavor.
I followed the recipe and also put it in the oven afterward to crisp it up. It was way too sweet and buttery for me.
1/2 the recipes - 1/2 the calories I LOVE popcorn and LOVE peanut butter, but a snack with 380 calories was a little much for this calorie counter. So I cut the recipe in half, and still made 8 great snack sized servings! This is a perfect little snack to really curb a sweet tooth craving - and at 180 calorie instead, it fits into the diet. :)
We loved this recipe, but you MUST bake it for 20 minutes at 250 degrees, stirring 3 or 4 times. Then, it is crunchy & delicious!!
This was amazing! I made it for a gathering with friends and I have just a few crumbs left of a big glass casserole dish full. I did double the amount of peanut butter at the request of my boyfriend. (He loves peanuts and anything that has them.) I did follow the advice of other reviewers and baked it at 250 for 30 minutes stirring every 10 minutes. Just a tip: the coating mix is gooey and sticky. If you don't want to spend a lot of time cleaning the mixing bowls or the spatula, spray them with cooking spray, like Pam, first. The mixture doesn't stick and is really easy to clean up.
I would give this ten stars if I could! So good, so addictive, watch out you might gain a few pounds from this!! I did bake it to dry it out as well. The third time I made it I added more peanut butter but it wasn't as good. If you add more pb, then add more marshmallows too. You really need that sweet and stickiness from the marshmallows. Make this recipe, you won't be sorry!!
This was a hit at my party. We used a little extra peanut butter. Only other change we made was to bake it in a 250 oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
Fabulous! Simple to make, works up quick, and everyone - and I mean everyone - just loves it.
I love love love this popcorn! I definately recommend putting it on a foil-lined cookie sheet and baking it at 220 for about 20-30 minutes. It gets less sticky that way. This disappears at my house in less than 5 minutes and its reccommended again almost as soon as is gone. Absolutely delicious!
This peanut butter popcorn was excellent! We followed other reviewers suggestions and dried it out in the oven then drizzled melted chocolate over it; I have made this with reg. peanut butter, almond butter, and sunflower seed butter, all were excellent! Even wrapped up & gave as gifts, yum!!
amazing..easy to make..big party favorit.I would just add an extra bag or 2 of popcorn
Fabulous. I used more peanut butter and only one package of popcorn. This was so good, I ate about a cup of it before sticking in the oven to crisp, as other reviewers suggested. We'll see if there is any left for my husband when he gets home... :)
Wonderful! NOTE: take out all the popcorn kernals prior to mixing. I also added peanuts and m&m's and baked in the oven. My kids and husband devourred it! def a family favorite
Made the recipe with 20C of regular popcorn and used 3/4C chunky peanut butter, keeping the remainder of the recipe the same. I also took other reviewers advice and baked it at 250 for 45 minutes, stirring after each 15 minutes. That made it nice and crispy. My kids LOVE it although I am not a fan. Might like it made into balls instead of baked so I will most likely make it again. I'm sure my kids will insist.
LOVE this! My husband and I make is at least once a month for movie night. My whole family has the recipe now too. I wouldn't change a thing to the recipe!
Too gooey if not cooked therefore cook at 200 degrees for about 15 minutes, stirring it halfway. Half a bag of miniature marshmallows = 20 large marshmallows Could try less brown sugar...more marshmallow and pb.
THE BEST I HAVE FOUND!!
This was just too sweet
My daughter loved this and I've got great reviews. I made it as in the directions but used a little less popcorn.
Mmmmmm... this stuff is supper yummy. Easy to make. I dried mine out in the oven as other reviewers suggested & it was great.
Oh my- this isn't a low cal treat, is it? So what- yummy! I zapped the marshmallow mixture 4 minutes total, then added double the peanut butter & zapped one more minute. Did the recommended 30 minutes at 200 on 2 cookie sheets- let cool. Definitely do this- gets rid of the goo. Wonderful, easy. Thanks!
Loved it! I used marshmallow cream because I did not have any marshmallows, and it turned out great! I followed others' advice and crisped the popcorn in the oven on 300 for 7-10 minutes.
This is excellent and very easy to make. I don't use microwave popcorn so I just made air popped popcorn, I used 6 T of popcorn kernals and he ratio was good for the mixture. this is the 2nd batch. I made it a few nights ago and the kids requested it again tonight.
This popcorn is sooo good! I used my hot air popper for the popcorn. I also baked it at 250 deg. for 1 hr, stirring every 15 mins. This makes it crunchy. Soooo yummy! My family and friends eat it up!
This was superb. It made a lot, so the next day I spread the leftovers out on a cookie sheet and placed it in my hot oven (had just turned it off after baking) let it sit for about an hour or so, and it turned into PB cracker jack. The kids LOVED it!
Me and my husband made this on a movie night and we had a HARD time putting it down. Absolutely great popcorn. I did say, "the next time we make this, it should have more peanut butter. Can't quite taste it." I would recommend using 1/2 a cup of pb :-)
Awesome! I did read the reviews and reduced the brown sugar and increased the peanut butter. I also don't eat microwave popcorn, so I make it with 1/4 cup popcorn kernels, popped; 1/4 cup butter; 1/4 cup brown sugar; 1/2 a bag of mini marshmallows; 1/4 cup + 2 T peanut butter and 1/4 tsp kosher salt. I tried it once stirring in mini reese's cups, but they just melted and made a mess. That batch, I pressed into a cake pan and cut into bars. I also have tried it with peanuts and milk chocolate chips - very good! I picked this recipe specifically because I wanted ooey, gooey popcorn and once I saw that the recipe has marshmallows, I knew I was on the right track.
This was excellent. I made a few adjustments hoping to make it a little less fattening. I may have succeeded at it but it doesn't make a difference if I eat the entire bowl. I air popped popcorn to fill a Tupperware THATSA Bowl about 3/4 full (appx 1 1/3 cup of kernels). I used a full jar of marshmallow creme, 3/4 stick of I Can't believe Its not Butter and a little less than a small jar of Reduced Fat Peanut Butter. Substituted Splenda Brown Sugar (appx. 3/4 cup). I didn't bake it but next time will as it was a bit chewy but everyone else who ate it thought it was perfect. Already made a 2nd batch. You really can adjust the quantities of ingredients to your liking. Cut back on brown sugar if too sweet, add PB if you like flavor. Very good basic recipe though.
This was fabulous! I am not a big fan of peanut butter but this wasn't a strong peanutty taste so even I loved it. I only popped one bag of lite popcorn (I like to use lite in flavored popcorn because it doesn't have much of a buttery or salty taste) but used the full amount of coating. I did take the suggestion to crisp up the popcorn, after coating it, (I was freaking out over the sticky hands!) in a 200 degree oven for 30 minutes ...stirring every 10 minutes or so. My grandson kept saying (in between mouthfuls), "This is soooo good, Honey!" He wanted to make sure we saved enough for his family. :o) Thanks for helping me make his time w/ me special!
Wish I could give this 10 stars it was so good. Don't be afraid to mess with it a little to get it just perfect for you. I have made it many times and changed things just slightly several times. It wonderful as is, but I like making it mine.
What a delicious treat!!! Loved this recipe! So fast and easy!!! I toasted it as well and used crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy. Thank you!!!
i didnt have microwave popcorn so i made my own and used salted butter instead of margarine to make up for the flavor. after reading the reviews i baked it in a foil lined pan at 200 for 20 mins. i had never heard of peanut butter popcorn before seeing this recipe. sooooo good. really glad i tried it.
This combines two of my favorite foods...peanut butter and popcorn. The recipe was easy and very tasty. I will make this again!
YUMMY!!! This is soooo good. I also cooked the mixture on the stove and finished off in 200 degree oven for half hour. I will for sure make this again. Maybe for Christmas Eve as a snack with the fam.
I had to use mini marshmallows and non-microwave popcorn. I used 3 cups of minimarshmallows and 1/2 cup uncooked popcorn kernels to make the popcorn. I used 1/2 cup of peanut butter per other reviews and I chose to shape mine into balls before it cooled. They were delicious!
Soggy. It was a miss with us.
This was a wonderful change to caramel corn! Thanks for the recipe. My family devoured it!
What fun to make and eat this recipe. I hard a hard time finding the plain (no buttery flavour) popcorn but am glad I did. I used 1/2 cup of peanut better and added 1 cup of chopped salted peanuts at the same time I added the peanut butter. I took the suggestion of many other reviewers and put the mixture on two cookie sheets to crisp at 250 degrees F for 20 minutes. The taste of the popcorn is reminiscant of cracker jacks with a peanut butter twist.
This is really good! I made a few changes; I had to substitute mini marshmallows & used 200 of them. & I didn't use the microwave but rather cooked the mixture on the stove until it bubbled so the sugar would disolve completely. & It seemed very gooey after I mixed it into the popcorn so I followed the advice to bake it in the oven for 30 minutes. WONDERFUL! I will keep this recipe on hand for filling gift bags for holidays!
So good. I also let the popcorn crisp up for 30 mins at 200 in the oven after popping it in the mic. In addition, I used 3/4 cup of organic peanut butter (a good balance with the sweetness of the marshmallows). Definitely worth trying.
Great recipe! I used air popped popcorn and followed others' advice to bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Turned out perfect and yummy, will definitely make again!
Good stuff. Using the stove top seems a lot easier. I used only one bag of buttered popcorn. Nice, simple snack. As easy as rice crispy treats.
if I had read reviews first, I would have finished this off in the oven. However, prepared as originally written, this recipe is a bit too gooey and sweet (and I love sweets!). With some of the minor tweaks of other reviewers, this would be a 5 star review.
So good. I must say it hit the spot for the sweet tooth. Thanks so much for sharing. :) My only suggestion is that one take the un popped coronals out.
These are perfect for a sweet tooth. Its hard to put the bowl down.
Seriously it's peanut butter and popcorn. How can it be wrong.
What you would expect it to taste like. My kids helped make it and loved it. We used air popped.
Hubby says it is the best carmel corn he ever had, gotta be true!!! :) I made it for a movie night tonight , but he got to it first! I added to the melted mixture the swirled chocolate/peanut butter chips and poured it over the corn, then sprinkled some chopped pecans and Heath chips over that before toasting 20 minutes in the oven. I stirred the batch probably three times to keep it all mixed well. THANKS for the recipe!
This is SOOOOO delicious!! I'm making it as a snack to take on my brother's boat and this will be perfect! I followed other reviews' suggestion and popped it in the oven for 20 mins at 200 degrees and as it cools it's great (not that it was bad gooey either - I ate a TON that way, before it made it in the oven). Excellent! Next time I'll make sure to have some peanuts to toss in at the end! GREAT recipe!
Good flavor with just the right amount of peanut butter. Not to overwhelming. But I feel this recipe is only worth it, if you go the extra step and put it in the oven to dry it out and crisp it up for a half and hour or so. Nobody could guess that it was made with peanut butter! YUM
Really great for a snow day!!! I substituted marshmallow creme for the marshmallows, and it turned out great. A fun snack for the kids to help with!
