Peanut Butter Honey Popcorn - A Well Crafted Party

Here in Portland we have had a LOT of snow days recently. The cold icky weather is perfect for a comfortable movie night in. What goes better with a movie night than popcorn? If you are looking for a tasty alternative to the normal bowl of popcorn then you are in luck because today is National Popcorn Day and the internet is going to be inundated with tasty flavored popcorn recipes… including this delicious Peanut Butter Honey Popcorn. YUM.

Peanut Butter Honey Flavored Popcorn - A Well Crafted Party

The sweet peanut butter sauce tossed with the popcorn in combination with a salty bite and crunch of this flavored popcorn is divine. My husband is currently going through a no sugar phase so I created a batch of this with just honey and peanut butter with no sugar. It was delicious as well, but just a little less sweet.  The consistency was nearly the same.

You can make the popcorn with plain microwave popcorn, air popped popcorn, or stovetop popcorn. I personally LOVE stovetop popped popcorn. It is actually quite easy to make and the flavor is really delicious. You can pop the popcorn kernels with vegetable oil, canola oil, or coconut oil. The coconut oil gives a a bit of a coconut flavor to the popcorn which is fantastic for the sweeter toppings.

Peanut Butter Honey Popcorn

Peanut Butter Honey Popcorn


    For the Popcorn:
  • 1 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • For the Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (no sugar in the peanut butter)
  • salt (optional and to taste)
  • roasted peanuts (optional)


    For the Popcorn:
  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy bottomed stock pot over medium heat.
  2. Test oil by dropping a single popcorn kernel in the oil. Once the kernel pops it means that it is ready to go!
  3. Drop the kernels into the oil and cover the stockpot with a lid. Make sure any vents on the lid are open to let out steam. If there is not a vent on the lid then partially uncover the stockpot to release steam.
  4. Let the popcorn pop until the popping slows. Take off heat and uncover before the popping ends.
  5. For the Sauce:
  6. In a saucepan combine the sugar and honey over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Do not let the sugars burn.
  7. Take the mixture off of the heat add in the vanilla and peanut butter. Stir until mixture is incorporated.
  8. Pour the peanut butter mixture into a bowl and mix in the popcorn a handful at a time. Mix until covered with mixture.
  9. Salt to taste.
  10. For a fun crunch add in some roasted peanuts. For a little more sweetness add in some chocolate chips. To decrease the sugar replace the granulated sugar with honey.

  1. I just heard on the radio that today is National Popcorn Day – This version looks AMAZINGLY yummy! Popcorn is my boyfriend’s favorite – He makes it at least once a week, but he likes the plain variety, popped up in some coconut salt with a bit of salt. I may have to make this for myself while he’s out of town this weekend 😉

    This sounds so fun. We just finished a 10 day sugar detox, so I think we’d also leave out the sugar and just do the honey, vanilla, pb. I love making homemade popcorn for my kids, but we usually keep it plain and boring. Going to try this next time. It will freak my kids out (in the best way) 😉

    YES oh my goodness, my children are popcorn addicts! We love making stovetop popcorn at home and trying new flavor mix-ins. This one looks like a winner, Jenni! Thanks for the recipe!

    Ooooh, what a treat! My mom never made popcorn in a pan/from scratch but Jason’s did, and every time he does it I am just so impressed, haha!

  4. I’m more of a savory popcorn kind of gal, but I’ve never put parsley in mine—that sounds delicious! I’m going to try that. I usually do a dash of garlic, salt and nutritional yeast with olive oil for a vegan treat. 🙂
