Peanut Butter Cashew Popcorn ~ Ooey, Gooey Peanut Butter Sauce smothering popcorn and cashews!
Around the holidays I get all ambitious and think I’m going to bake up a ton of treats and impress the pants off everyone. Then you know what happens? Life. I manage to get a few things made, my ambition runs out, things come up and I don’t have enough treats for all the holiday get togethers! *SIGH*
You know what’s really bad about this? Everyone knows I’m a food blogger by now and when I walk in the door they seem to expect greatness. Some days it’s hard to live up to all the hype! So I’m always thankful when I come up with super simple treats like this Peanut Butter Cashew Popcorn that when I’m crunched on time I can make in a jiffy. Best part is no one knows that it didn’t take much time and they are still impressed!
I found this amazing treat in the Gooseberry Patch Hometown Harvest Cookbook. I adore that cookbook. It’s stuffed full of all kinds of treats and eats like this one that have been tried by people just like you and I and often times passed down through the generations. That’s when you know a recipe is a true *keeper*!
You know what else is pretty awesome. I have a chance for you to win one of those amazing Hometown Harvest Cookbooks right here on the blog!
