Peanut Butter Popcorn

from Sandy Webb Blinman of Castle Rock, CO – Sandy’s granddaughter says, “once you start eating it, it’s hard to stop.” ½ cup popcorn kernels
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
1/3 cup white corn syrup
½ cup light brown sugar, packed
½ cup peanut butter (I prefer creamy)

Pop popcorn, pour into large bowl and season with melted butter (you can add salt, but I don’t think it’s necessary).  In small saucepan, combine corn syrup and brown sugar and cook and stir until hot and bubbly.  Stir in peanut butter and cook until well blended (20 seconds or so).  Pour over popcorn and stir until pieces are coated.  Turn out onto waxed paper to cool.
