This recipe was good. The kids especially loved it.
1 lb. melting chocolate, chopped (I used chocolate chips)
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
12 to 16 cups of salted popped popcorn
1-1/2 cups salted peanuts
1-1/2 cups of crispy rice cereal
Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. (I cooked it over low heat on the stove.) Microwave on high for one minute;stir. Add peanut butter; microwave an additional one to 2 minutes, until chocolate is completely melted. Stir mixture until creamy. Place popcorn in a large bowl or roasting pan; drizzle half the chocolate mixture over popcorn and stir. Sprinkle in peanuts and cereal, stirring to mix well. Pour remaining chocolate mixture over all; stir gently to coat. Spread onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Put on a cool porch or in the refrigerator until chocolate is hardened. Break up any large pieces before serving. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 16 to 20 cups.
