Reese’s, anything reese’s tends to go crazy on this site. Apparently you all love the chocolate and peanut butter combo as much as me. It all started when I posted these reese’s krispies a few years back and the pinning went crazy. Since then we’ve made reese’s peanut butter cookies, reese’s peanut butter marshmallow cookie pie, and a gazillion others which I’ll link to at the bottom of the post with photos. On a whim while making popcorn for our family one night I had the idea to combine reese’s krispies and salty popcorn and it turned into magical Reese’s Krispies Popcorn, so of course I had to share.
We love movie night as a family. Just everyone all snuggled up on the couch, snacking on something yummy, or in this case something totally sinful.
It all starts with the same recipe as you would make scotcheroos. Have you had those? Blast! They are so simple, but I cannot resist them! So of course I had no choice but to use the same “sauce” for this popcorn. And please tell me you love those as much as I do?
And I know this part seems a little unnecessary, but dump in some rice krispies cereal. Seriously. Trust me on this one. It adds this addictive little crunch to the popcorn and you wont be able to decide if it’s more like a scotcheroo or popcorn, but it will be awesomeness.
Is Popcorn Gluten Free?
Corn is a whole-grain food, and all types of corn are gluten-free.
Popcorn is gluten-free on its own, but some brands of microwave popcorn may contain gluten, so be sure to read the label.
Does Popcorn Have Nutritional Value?
Popcorn does not contribute significant amounts of any nutrients.
But, it does supply trace amounts of the B vitamins, thiamin, niacin, B6, folate and some minerals.
Air-popped popcorn has only 30 calories per cup; oil-popped popcorn has only 35 calories per cup.
Popcorn is high in fiber and without a lot of butter added, it can be a healthy, low calorie snack.
Is Popcorn Bad For Your Digestive System?
Fiber promotes healthy digestion, so increasing the amount of popcorn you eat can help you deal with digestive problems.

Reese’s Peanut BUtter Marshmallow Cookie Pie
White Karo syrup? Or dark Karo syrup?
Hi Regina, light karo syrup
Love the popcorn recipe…actually I love all the Reese’s PB cups recipes here! Can’t wait to try them.
haha, clearly we love our Reese’s!
Can the popcorn you buy in the store already in the bags be used instead? If so, how many bags? Thanks!
Absolutely. I have noticed the bags are not all equal however so you may want to start with one bag and add another if needed.
So, how many cups of popped corn? Thanks!
This will make about 10 cups of popped popcorn.

Heather @ Shards of Lavender
Oh my goodness, this looks insane! I make all my popcorn in a paper bag in the microwave too, which is so much easier than hauling out the popper. We’re going to have to try this for our next family game night!
Amen. It’s so much easier!
