Chunky Monkey Popcorn

Healthy snack idea time. 
More specifically, DELICIOUS, healthy snack idea time. 
SkinnyPop popcorn asked several bloggers to come up with a unique and personalized snack idea by adding 3 ingredients to SkinnyPop Popcorn (check out their website HERE)
What's that? Create even more ways to enjoy SkinnyPop? Count me in. 
By the way, we were not compensated for this post. We just really enjoy SkinnyPop and creating fun and healthy snack ideas. 
I decided to go with peanut butter as my first ingredient because.... well.... it's peanut butter. There's pretty much nothing it can't do. And then I added chocolate and banana because I think we all know what a magical combination that is. My recipe is for a very generous single serving but can easily be halved or doubled for less or more!

Chunky Monkey Popcorn

3 3/4 cup SkinnyPop Popcorn (1 serving)
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp no sugar, dark chocolate chips, divided
15 dried banana chips

Spread the SkinnyPop popcorn on a cookie tray. Prepare your other ingredients. Divide the no sugar chocolate chips in half. Microwave half in a small bowl for about 20 - 30 seconds, until melted. 
Microwave peanut butter for 20 - 30 seconds, until melted.
Slightly crush the dried banana chips so they are broken up well. 

Drizzle the melted chocolate and peanut butter over the popcorn using a spoon. Sprinkle with the remaining chocolate chips and the crushed banana chips.

Pop into the freezer for 1 minute to firm up the chocolate and peanut butter.
Place into a bowl and enjoy!
FYI - Once firmed up, this also makes a great lunch box snack. Simply place it in a zip top bag and it is good to go!

So pretty...... and delicious.... and easy peasy. 

It might not seem like a lot of peanut butter or chocolate or banana but, trust me, it is the right amount. You get a different combination of flavors in each mouthful. 
Of course, you can add more if you really want to (but seriously, try this amount first!)

What 3 ingredients would you add to SkinnyPop to personalize it? The options are endless!

  1. Chunky Monkey Popcorn is the best refreshment item for the evening with the tea. I used to buy the popcorns from outside but now, I will make at home.
