Ingredients

  • 20 cups of Just Pop In!’s cocoa popcorn
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • ¼–½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup Reese’s Pieces baking chips

Instructions

Temper white chocolate either via microwave or boil method. Pour the mixture over the cocoa popcorn and add the chips. Mix and cool.

Microwave method: At 50% microwave strength, melt white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds. Continue to heat in 15- to 30-second increments until completely melted. Stir in ¼ cup peanut butter. Add the ¼ cup balance for a more peanut butter flavor.

Boiling method: Bring water to a boil, then turn off the heat. Set a metal bowl that holds ⅔ of the chocolate into the water. Be careful not to let water into the bowl. Stir until melted; continue to add the balance of the chips until they too are melted. A temperature of 110°–115°F is recommended.
