Puppy Chow Popcorn

If you guys know me at all, you know I love a good chocolate and peanut butter combo. It's my ALL-time favorite sweet combo and luckily my husband doesn't mind when I make chocolate and peanut butter stuff most of the time. :)

And one of my all-time favorite snacks as a child was puppy chow. My sitter used to make it all the time and I begged my mother to make it at home. I could eat the whole container and that's probably why I only make it for special occasions now much to the chagrin (or relief) of a couple of friends my husband works with. This has popcorn in it so that makes it healthier, right? ;)

This is so easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand and it came together within minutes.
