The Freshman Cook: Reese Cup Popcorn!

Please Rate this Recipe

My son is currently studying for his final exams of his senior year of college. It’s almost over!! I know you can’t see me, but if you could, you would be seeing me with a huge smile on my face! 🙂 So, to help him get through some long and tough study sessions, I made him some of this Reese Cup Popcorn. It’s yummy, addicting, and so easy to put together. You are gonna love it!

Reese Cup Popcorn

1 bag microwave Popcorn

1 package Nestle Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate Morsels

1/4 cup Party Peanuts

2 small bags Mini Reese Cups

Pop your popcorn according to package directions.

Place the popped popcorn into a pan to cool.

Use a pan that will fit into your freezer.

Take out the unpopped kernels.

Separate the peanut butter chips from the

milk chocolate chips.

(it doesn’t take as long as you might think!)

Melt the peanut butter chips in a double boiler, or 

refer to the package directions for other

methods of melting.

Pour the melted peanut butter chips onto the popcorn.

Mix until totally covered.

Add the peanuts, and mix in.

Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, just like the 

peanut butter chips.

While the chocolate is melting, chop each of the

 mini reese cups into 4 pieces.

Add the chocolate chips and the 

chopped reese cups to the popcorn.

Mix together well. 

Place in freezer for 15 minutes.
