Holy crap – I haven’t posted a recipe in 8 days! Forgive me, peeps. I’ve been busy. I’m supposed to be on vacation and instead of relaxing I have spent the past couple of days painting three walls and a door.

Yup. That’s it. Basically, less than half my living room got a refresh. Now I’m staring at my other walls like, EEEFFFFFFF this shit – I am contracting this job out. Painting is hard work.

So all I have for you is this Peanut Butter Caramel Corn. Yeah, I ought to have a lil’ Thanksgiving somethin’ somethin’ but I don’t and I apologize. We’re celebrating Thanksgiving on Friday and quite frankly, I’m not even ready. I JUST moved my pork shoulder from the freezer to the fridge. I have no pies. I don’t even have pie dough in the freezer.

Ugh. I’m slacking.

Anyway, this popcorn should more than make up for my lack of Thanksgiving mojo.

I have a slight obsession with caramel corn. I mean, look at it? Caramel doused popcorn. It’s crack is what it is.

Of course, I had to make this popcorn super crack by adding peanut butter and peanuts to the mix.

How did this happen? Glad you asked, homeslice.

One Sunday I wondered if peanut butter and caramel would work together. And before I could stop myself, before I could talk myself out of such a thing, I melted my last  2/3 cup of peanut butter with 2 sticks of butter, 2 cups of brown sugar, and 1/2 a cup of corn syrup.

The caramel is cooked for about 5 minutes. That’s all. Five minutes.

This sweet and salty peanut butter laced caramel is poured into a giant bowl of popcorn. It’s mixed and mixed until almost every kernel is coated, and then it’s baked for about 40 minutes. Why do we bake? Because, maaaaaaan! Heat makes the caramel adhere to the kernels. AND! Once the popcorn cools the kernels are crunchy. Super crunchy. Oh, and did I mention I drizzled it with melted chocolate? Because I did. The sweet, salty, crunchy, nuttiness of this popcorn will have you reaching for the bowl, smacking all the hands. It’s yours. All yours. That’s why this popcorn is crack. Super crack. Like I could be THE drug kingpin if this Peanut Butter Caramel Corn were crack.

My Kingpin name would be Too Sweets.

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!
