How to make Peanut Butter Snack Mix
- This recipe begins with a batch of microwave caramel corn. I’ve been making this recipe for 25 years! It is the best caramel corn and making it in the microwave makes it so easy! It’s made in a brown paper bag!!
- After removing it from the microwave, pour your caramel corn onto some parchment paper and sprinkle on your pretzels, potato chips, Reese’s Pieces and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Mini. Work fast so that they stick to the wet caramel corn. Don’t worry if they don’t all stick together, you are going to add a drizzle of white chocolate which help.
- Melt your white chocolate in the microwave. You can use white chocolate chips, almond bark or vanilla melts. I place it in a glass measuring cup. Be sure and stir it every 30 seconds or so as you melt it in the microwave as white chocolate can burn a lot a quicker than other chocolate. If it doesn’t melt to a good drizzling consistency, add a little vegetable oil into the chocolate and stir to combine.
- Use a fork to drizzle it over the snack mix.
- Allow the peanut butter snack mix to set up and then place in a bowl and enjoy!
This stuff is addictive and you are going to want to make a trip to your local Kroger store as soon as possible. It’s your one-stop shop for all your game watching party needs with food
& beverage quick grabs and inspirations. March Madness is here and this snack mix will be your most requested party food! Here in Portland, Fred Meyer and QFC are part of the Kroger family.
