Popcorn Squares Recipe

Popcorn Squares Recipe

Popcorn and granola add a healthy crunch to these peanut-buttery treats.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup granola cereal, with larger chunks broken up
  • 1 cup roasted and salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  • 3 cups plain popped popcorn

Instructions

  1. Line an 8- or 9-inch square pan with foil. Heat the honey in a large saucepan until it boils, about 2 minutes. Add the peanut butter and stir until mixture is well blended.
  2. Remove the pan from the stove and stir in the granola, the peanuts, and the popcorn until everything is coated.
  3. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Refrigerate the pan until the mixture is cool, about 30 minutes.
  4. Cut the mixture into small squares (we got 25 from our pan). The treats will be a bit crumbly, so you may want to serve them in paper candy cups.
