Reese's Pieces & Pretzel Popcorn



Exactly two years ago, I saw this yumminess on Pinterest. And because I cannot buy Reese's pieces or Reese's peanut butter chips on a regular basis (unless I want to gain 50 pounds), it was something that simply had to be tried.

My daughter and I made it, and it was to die for. It didn't last the weekend.

In a word, addicting!

Reese's Pieces and Pretzel Popcorn
~slightly adapted from landeelu.com

12 cups popped popcorn
4 cups mini pretzels
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups Reese’s Pieces candies
1 cup Reese's peanut butter chips

In a large bowl, combine popcorn & pretzels and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, honey & corn syrup. Bring to boil, then cook & stir for 2 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over popcorn/pretzel mixture and toss until it's all coated. Pour onto two cookie sheets that are either sprayed or lined with parchment. Bake uncovered at 250 degrees for 30 minutes, and stir every 10 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately mix in the Reese’s Pieces candies and peanut butter chips. Break into clusters and allow to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.
