Reese's Gameday Pep-Corn: An irresistible chocolate and peanut butter treat!

Would you believe me if I told you that you can this make delicious chocolate-covered popcorn in just a few minutes? It’s true, and I’ll show you how! This easy snack drizzled with melted REESE’S® cups is so easy and SO GOOD. Grab yourself these three ingredients, and let’s get started (full recipe at the end of the post):

  • Popcorn
  • Peanuts
  • REESE’S® Minis

First, evenly spread popcorn and peanuts on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.

Reese's Pepcorn Step One

Next, cut REESE’S® Minis in half, put them in a microwave-safe bowl, and heat on half power for about a minute until melted.

Reese's Pepcorn Step 2

Stir the melted candy really well, and use a spoon or small rubber spatula to drizzle the melted chocolate all over the popcorn mixture. Stick it in the refrigerator for at least a half hour until the chocolate is set.

Reese's Pepcorn Step 3

Divide it into individual servings, and top each one with a few more peanuts and REESE’S Minis. Chocolate and peanut butter fans will go wild! (Do eat this right away after removing it from the fridge because the chocolate melts pretty easily.)

Hi, Katie! I don’t usually think of myself as a huge peanut butter fan on its own, but combined with chocolate it is definitely one of my favorite flavors! Thanks for stopping by :)
