This Fudgy Peanut Butter Popcorn Crunch from Tastefully Simple is delicious and the M&M’s add the perfect pop of crunch.
This Fudgy Peanut Butter Popcorn Crunch is delicious my friends. It’s made with just a few simple ingredients. The base of this treat uses Tastefully Simple’s Fudgy Peanut Butter Popcorn Mix which is delicious on it’s own but I decided to add a little more crunch with a corn syrup and sugar mixture and some M&M’s.
My kids were eating this by the handful but you could also form the popcorn mixture into small ball shapes as soon as you add the hot corn syrup mixture you just need to be careful as the corn syrup will be really hot.
First, I placed the popcorn in a bag and smashed it into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon. I then added some M&M’s to the mixture and poured the corn syrup/sugar mixture on top and mixed it all together. Pour it on a baking sheet and let it cool. Once it’s completely cool you can break the pieces up again.
