Healthy Halloween Snack

With Halloween right around the corner, it can be difficult to lure kids away from the sugar and fat that typical Halloween goodies serve up. That’s why I thought it’d be fun to share foodie Amy Sherman’s Popcorn Crunch recipe as great Halloween activity that parents and kids can do together to create a fiber-rich snack that is perfect for on-the-go occasions.

Amy’s Popcorn Crunch is packed with rich flavors of caramel and toasty nuts, not to mention it’s sure to please the palette of your little ghoul or goblin. Amy shares, “Sometimes the best recipes are happy accidents. I was trying to make a snack bar but over toasted the mixture of honey, sugar, peanut butter and popcorn. The result? Something much more delicious! A crunchy popcorn mix that is positively addictive.”

For a treat that is perfect for parties, package your Popcorn Crunch in Holiday-themed cellophane bags for a festive snack that is the perfect serving size.

Amy Sherman’s Popcorn Crunch

1/4 sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
4 cups popped popcorn

Cook sugar and honey until sugar dissolves about 3 minutes. Add peanut butter, one tablespoon at a time, to prevent it from clumping together. Cook another 2 minutes then stir and cook another 2 minutes. Add popcorn dispersing it evenly. Cook for 3 minutes then transfer to a greased sheet pan to cool.
