Peanut Butter Chocolate Caramel Corn

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.
