Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pretzel Popcorn

[tabgroup layout="horizontal"] [tab title="Ingredients"]1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips

3 tablespoons peanut butter

1 bag of your favorite popcorn (popped)

1/2 cup of crushed pretzels (into 1/4 inch pieces - slightly smaller than the popcorn)

1 tablespoon sea salt (large pieces)[/tab] [tab title="Procedure"]1. Microwave popcorn and put into a large bowl (not for serving) combined with pretzel pieces.

2. In a microwaveable bowl, place chocolate chips and microwave for 10 seconds at a time, stirring in between until the chocolate is fully melted.  Stir in peanut butter and microwave again for 15 more seconds.  Stir until completely combined.

3. While the chocolate/peanut butter mixture is still liquidy and hot, drizzle 1/4 of the liquid over the popcorn and pretzel pieces, gently folding everything together.  Continue to add liquid 1/4 at a time until fully combined or to your taste.

4. Finish with a sprinkle of sea salt and fold to combine once more.

5. Spread popcorn out on a large sheet of parchment paper to dry completely.

6. Enjoy!
