In my home, game day is serious. I’ve even got alerts set up in my phone calendar so that I never miss my favorite team. The evening of a game is filled with loud screams, cheers, groans, and anxiety eating when my team is behind, ha! I do like to have snacks out for family and friends to munch on during the game, but with a busy schedule I often don’t have a ton of time to set aside for making the snacks. Relying on brands that I can grab at my local Walmart, like Orville Redenbacher’s®, are how I’m able to deliver delicious food on game day while saving precious time. This easy Puppy Chow Popcorn take just minutes to make, so I can make it between commercial breaks if necessary. And it’s so good, friends. So. Good. Like absurdly good.

I start by popping a bag of Orville Redenbacher’s® Movie Theater Butter popcorn in the microwave and then I transfer it into a large bowl. I prefer Orville Redenbacher’s® because their popcorn contains no artificial preservatives, flavors, or dyes and their popcorn, in my experience, is always the best quality.

Then I grab a large zip closure bag and add powdered sugar.

In a separate, smaller bowl, I add some chocolate chips and peanut butter and melt them together in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until it’s melted together and smooth. Then I add some vanilla and stir again.

I pour the peanut butter chocolate mixture over the popcorn and stir it all to coat using a spatula.

Then I transfer the coated popcorn to the zip closure bag I filled with powdered sugar earlier. Yes, it will fit.

I zip it shut and gently shake the popcorn to coat it.

I transfer it to parchment paper to set and harden a bit, but if I’m being honest I skip this step more often than not and just transfer it all to a bowl and run back into the living room to make sure I didn’t miss a moment, ha! This popcorn recipe is super quick and easy to make, plus it’s the perfect food for anxiety eating when the team is behind, ha!
