Not so long I was chatting with a co-worker about how peanut butter and chocolate goes so well together. As we chatted we came up with this combination for a treat. I came home and made and it was delicious, if I say so myself. This recipe really doesn't have any measurements as I just put things together but hopefully you will get the idea.
I do have to tell you a story, as I was making this, I place the caramel bits in a cup to melt in the microwave. I had set it first for 30 seconds and it didn't even come close to melting them, they were still hard. So I put them on again for 2 minutes ~ Thinking that I would check them about every 30 seconds. I was busy pouring the melted chocolate and drizzling the the peanut butter spread over the popcorn and snitching a kernel or two to taste that I forgot about the caramels in the microwave.... I am sure that you can imagine what happened. The next thing I knew was that the whole kitchen smelt like it was burning. The caramel was burnt to a crisp. The moral of the story is that when you are melting something you should set the time for short intervals so you remember to check it often.
