Popcorn is one of my absolute favorite snacks, which is why a few years ago, I invested in a very inexpensive hot air popcorn maker. Since then, my kids and I have snacked on popcorn many afternoons in the summer, after school and in the evenings in front of a movie., What I love about hot air popped popcorn is that it’s basically like a blank canvas for so many different popcorn creations. I typically like mine more savory sprinkled with sea salt and grated Parmesan cheese…but I would never pass up on some of the sweeter creations like this Reese’s Peanut Butter Popcorn from my friend Maria. Who wouldn’t be happy with a bowl of heavenly goodness like that in their lap?
