peanut butter & honey popcorn, a gluten free Christmas snack to gift

This Christmas popcorn recipe is from a page that I tore out of my Grandma’s Taste of Home magazine years ago! It is incredibly simple, makes a wonderful little gift, and pairs perfectly with a favourite holiday movie.

Favourite Takeaways:

  1. Already gluten + dairy free
  2. An excellent last-minute treat
  3. No candy thermometer required

Whenever I make this popcorn for Christmas, it never lasts long. Much like a bowl of nuts and bolts, the boys basically attack it!!

A note that no alterations were made to this recipe.

approximate times:

  • about 35  minutes



  1. Line 2  cookie sheets with parchment paper
  2. Pop popcorn and place in a large bowl
  3. Shake the bowl so all the kernels fall to the bottom
  4. Transfer the popped, fluffy corn to another large bowl – set aside
  5. In a small-medium saucepan, combine the sugar and honey – bring to a boil at medium heat, stirring constantly
  6. Boil for 5 minutes, keep stirring
  7. Remove from heat
  8. Add peanut butter – stir until blended
  9. Pour over popcorn (careful it’s hot!) and toss gently (and quickly) to coat
  10. Transfer coated popcorn onto the lined cookie sheets
  11. Let cool completely before storing in airtight containers

further insights:

  • serves about 14
  • stored in tins lined with parchment paper
