Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn

I love today’s post.

Not that I don’t love every post I do… I mean…

It’s just today’s post involves peanut butter cups and Our Best Bites.



I met Kate last year at an event we both went to for Smucker’s

I totally adore her.

Well, she and her partner Sara have just released their second book…Savoring the Seasons

PhotobucketI was lucky enough to get a copy and have had a few weeks to play with some of the recipes.

The book is so great, filled with lots of pictures, great (everyday AND special occasion) recipes and it’s all categorized by season!  They’ve included great tips throughout and did I mention all the pictures?  Love a cookbook with gorgeous photos!


When I was flipping through the pages I completely zoned in on one recipe.

Which fits me like a Spanx.

Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn.  Duh.


I am pretty sure that a recipe couldn’t better fit me if I’d written it myself!


And it’s easy…

Let’s do it.

Get some honey roasted peanuts…


Mix that with some popcorn (their recipe calls for plain, but I used lightly buttered) and also some peanut butter cups.

If you can’t find the itty bitty ones, just chop up some Minis…I also kinda-sorta-doubled the amount of pb cups in there.  I need rehab.


Next just melt some peanut butter chips.  I always use the double boiler to melt my chocolate and candy pieces, because I am microwave-impaired.  I will burn it every time.  But if you have mastered the art of the nuke, by all means…


Pour the melted peanut butter chips all over the popcorn, peanut and pb cup mixture.

You want every piece coated.  No nekkid pieces.

PhotobucketThen spread it out on some waxed paper…


And give it a little pizzazz…

PhotobucketDoesn’t it make you want to weep?




Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn

  • Author: Cookies & Cups


makes about 20 cups popcorn


  • 2 bags microwaved popcorn (I used lightly buttered)
  • 2 cups honey roasted peanuts
  • 4 cups Mini Peanut Butter Cups
  • 3 cups peanut butter chips
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil or shortening
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Pop popcorn according to package directions, picking out any unpopped kernels. Place into a large bowl with peanuts and peanut butter cups.
  2. In a double boiler, melt peanut butter chips and vegetable oil or shortening. (You could also melt the chips in the microwave, heating for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth).
  3. Pour the melted chips over the popcorn mixture and stir to completely coat.
  4. Spread the popcorn onto a waxed paper lined counter.
  5. In a heavy-duty zip-top bag heavy heat your semisweet chips, about 1 minute 30 seconds, mashing bag every 30 seconds. Cut a small slit in the corner of the bag and drizzle over popcorn.
  6. Let popcorn sit until the chocolate is set.


Popcorn is best if eaten the same day, but can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

    I love fall for the Pumpkin recipes. I love summer because of the heat. If I could have fall and summer all year that would be great.

  2. Jason

    Even though it’s not a “real” season, I would have to go with the Holiday Season! I love the Holidays…Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mardi Gras and Easter…you can even include Halloween!

  3. Andrea

    I’m in Houston we don’t have seasons! 🙂 I love fall into winter. Something but snuggly sweaters and cozy blankets make me happy.

  4. Naemi

    I just love baking books from the US. There are so much cuter and more beautiful than boring German books. 😛 But I don’t know, if your giveaway would be open for international fans, though. But I would love to win, if it’s possible. Follow you on Pinterest as well and always love your postings!

    Greets, Naemi

  5. My favorite is fall between the crisp weather and the comfort food and desserts! Along with apple picking and making homemade applesauce and butter! Yum! Can’t wait to try the popcorn recipe, my hubby is obsessed with PB cups!

  6. Kelley H

    This recipe looks DELISH! My favorite time of year is definitely Fall. After a long hot summer (especially THIS summer), I really look forward to the cool down and the anticipation of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  7. Cindy

    Living in the northeast, fall has to be my favorite seasons, the leaves are changing colors, you need your heater in the car in the morning and your a/c in the afternoon. There is a crispness to the air and you can visit the apple orchards & bake to your hearts delight!

  8. claudia begley

    I would have to say fall for 2 reasons – its my birthday next week (not really fall but the weather feel likes it ) – and secondly i love fall squashes so many recipes and so scrumptious 🙂

  9. Donna Ingalls

    My favorite season is fall. I love everything about it; the tastes, the smells and the sights. The lovely colors of changing leaves gently falling to the ground make me so happy. The aromas of apples, pumpkins, mum plants, and even wet leaves-yes, I love that too! Oh, the tastes. I love to bake fall pies-pecan, pumpkin, apple, etc. it’s cool enough to keep the oven on for hours so I kee baking and cooking all season
    I would love to win your book for all your wonderful new recipes to continue my season of baking.
    Thank you

  10. Susan G

    I live in Texas so I really miss having seasons…but I’ve always been partial to fall, love that crisp in the air, the season of snuggling!

  11. Maureen

    I love the FALL. It is cooler and I love the football games and I love the spices of the season. I love the beginning of baking season.

  12. I think that cookbook is awesome! I already follow you via email and pinterest and love the ideas you come up with and the themed weeks. My favorite season is Autumn. I love the crisp chill in the air, I love the colors of the leaves, I love the many activities I get to do with my children. 🙂

  13. Sandi

    I love the fall and winter months….. it gives us a chance to cool off slow down and enjoy the cooler weather and the holiday seasons. A time to spend with family. It is the season before a fresh new spring. Spring flowers are the most beautiful as they represent a new year and a new season for the new year to come.

    I too follow you on Pineterest…..

  14. Apryl

    After a summer full of sleepovers, vacations and total schedule flop……FALL is the best. My family is back in the groove. We eat together. cook together and of course snuggle on chilly nights. Fall by far is the best for us.

  15. Teri

    I lovvveee fall!l the crisp air , the fall colors on leaves,and the Food, soups, breads, muffins the list goes on…… i would love a copy of the book!!!!!

  16. Carrie

    Spring is usually my favorite, but i have to say since i started following your site, i am so excited for fall!!! Cant wait to make all of the fun yummy fall treats.

  17. Laura Taylor

    I absolutely love fall! The coolness and crispness in the air, all things apple and pumpkin, sweatshirts and jeans. O it is just a comforting season 🙂

  18. sandra

    Love the Fall!!!… Fall Fairs..beautiful leaves turning..great temperatures for a hike in the woods.
    Soups, Chili..seasonal squash and pumpkins!!..Halloween!! Love Love Love the Fall <3
    Follow you on Pinterest!!.

  19. Jeanette Lawson

    Well, like most of the other respondents, for my first 25 years, fall was my favorite season. Cooler weather, changing leaves, Halloween, shorter days; they made me feel cozy and romantic. Then I decame a teacher, an avid cook and traveler. Now summer is my favorite season, because I love the time off, Which has allowed me to visit Europe several times (love the hot Italian and Spanish weather and guys, lol), and I appreciate all of the fresh summer fruits and vegetables available at farmer’s markets there and here at home. When I saw the corn with the burger on the cover of “Our Best Bites”, my first thought was “I need to stop at my little farm stand for corn tonight!” Thanks for the reminder, and for the opportunity to win the cookbook.


    Love this recipe… as I don’t “do” microwave popcorn, how many cups of popped corn would this measure out to?
    Hope I win the book.

  21. AmyCowell

    I love this recipe! I do love fall but winter is my favorite. Big pots of soup, homemade breads and cookies, and roasts in the oven bring back memories of visiting my grandparents when I was a kid. Don’t forget the holidays and celebrating over all the homemade deliciousness!

  22. Has to be fall. The flavours, the smell of the leaves, the cool days and bonfires… gotta have it.

    Also, I really LOVE the little ceramic punnet in the bottom photo. So freaking cute!!

  23. Jaime F

    I used to be a “summer girl” but as I’ve gotten older and wiser, I have realized that fall is where it’s at! No frizzy hair, air conditioning, and a surplus of cinnamon, pumpkin, and scarves!

  24. Marcie

    My favorite baking season is fall. But I love the warmer months of summer. This book looks amazing and I can’t wait to try this popcorn.

  25. Angela Harris

    Definately Fall. I love the leaves changing, pumpkin everything, the crisp mornings and cool nights, even the air smells better. Of course, it will smell even better when I have the smells of popcorn, peanut butter and chocolate in my house. Now you’ve gone and made me hungry 🙂

  26. Genell Blair

    Fall is my favorite season. The 3 digits temperatures are gone and are hoping the mosquitoes will leave even sooner. Stew, chili and soup taste so much better this time of year. Sit back and watch the leaves change and tune in to view your favorite team. I would love to win your cookbook. Thank you.

  27. Barb

    I think I need to leave work and go home and make this right now!

    I love fall. Weather is just right and the air is crisp.

    I’m already a Pinterest follower as well.

  28. Obviously FALL is the best season!! Hoodies and jeans and apple crisp and football and pumpkin lattes/bread/beer.. I could go on, but then I’d just be rambling, which I think I’m already doing. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  29. Gayleen McCartney

    I would say . . . I kind of like them all in their own way! I like Fall because of the changing colos and the sound of crunching leaves; I like Winter because of all the Christmas baking fun and decorating and fun family time; I like the Spring because it’s like a rebirth, all the trees are getting leaves, flowers begin to bloom; and Summer is great for beach time, water balloons, sprinklers, summer vacations, picnics!

  30. Rachel

    Fall is my favorite! I love the cool, crisp weather and the changing of the leaves. I got married in October and prettymuch most of my family was born in October so, Fall is definitely my favorite!

  31. Claire Preston

    As it appears by all the comments above, I’m not the only one who loves Autumn!!
    By far my favourite season… hubby and I tied the knot last fall, we are expecting our first child this fall… guess I’m just drawn to the spirit of this season!
    BTW just wanted to say that I LOVED the caramel apple theme of last week – most definitely tried a recipe (or two… or three) that you posted, with great success!!
    Keep up the good work, I look forward to every new post!

  32. Jenny Martin

    It is a toss up between Fall and Winter. I love Fall–all the warm oranges, browns, reds….and the yummy pumpkin goodies and the warm spicy smell…..BUT then I love Winter too–it brings Christmas–and all the warm feelings inside, the beautiful Christmas decorations, the yummy Christmas goodies, the love of Jesus Christ….they are both wonderful seasons!

  33. Jen

    Wow! All of your delicious recipes may force me into dusting off my treadmill! I will say fall is my favorite season because I can turn on the oven more to make delicious dishes and snacks that make the house smell wonderful!

  34. Kelsie

    I love the fall! Pumpkin is in season and my favorite holiday (Thanksgiving) provides many fun days of cooking and baking. (I may get a little carried away…)

  35. MP

    Fall is the best season. Not only is my birthday in the fall, I also love weather that allows me to wear scarves!!
    This recipe sounds amazing, it’s going to the top of my to-do list!

  36. Michelle Bowers

    As much as it stinks, here in Florida we only have 2 seasons…. summer and winter ( or as I like to say.. hotter than [email protected]* or omg I can’t feel my hands– sorry I get cold easy). Anyway, my favorite would have to be winter… I love the “Fall” holidays and then the whole Holiday season as well.
    BTW, this recipe rocks and I can’t wait to make it!!

  37. By far “fall” is my favoritist season. Its the time of year to break out the crock pot (and use it), have friends (and family if you must) over for Sunday football games. After all, who can watch football w/o having good finger foods? No one I know!! Then, of course there’s Thanksgiving (no intro needed) and then the holiday saeson. Do you have any idea how much I would use that book?! If the rest are as great (and easy) as the chocolate popcorn recipe – I’ll never leave the kitchen!!

  38. Michelle

    I’d have to go with fall, because that’s when all of my favorite foods are in season…pumpkin, apples, and for some reason cooler weather encourages me to break out the yeast and make bread. Plus, a whole bunch of my favorite TV shows come back after a long summer waiting for cliffhanger resolution!

  39. Marcia

    The Fall is my most favorite season! I love the cool crisp air and bonfires at night. I can’t get enough pumpkin and apple recipes! I love Our Best Bites and am excited to read their cookbook. Yes, I read cookbooks! Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  40. Lisa L.

    My favorite season is fall! I love all the pumpkin and apple recipes, and the fall leaves, and the cool air with bright sunny days! Thanks for the chance to win!

  41. Heather G.

    By far my favorite season is Fall. While it may be the start of the rainy season–the crisp leaves, the colors, the sounds the sights–it’s all gorgeous! I think that Fall may have the best cozy sweaters and the bright rain boots and the cozy fires. 🙂

  42. Heather

    I think I say every season is my favourite at some point… but I’m going to have to say that summers win. I love the lake life and all the tasty bbq treats and frozen drinks that go with it!

  43. Oh my, this looks soooo good! The last time I made flavored popcorn it was Poppy Chow, also pb & choc. I made myself sick because I ate so much of it, so I’ve been wary to make more since then. This might be the recipe to make me reconsider! I’ll just make sure I’m not home alone.

  44. Whew! Took forever to get down here to comment. Which leaves me thinking I have little chance, but what the heck!

    My husband would rub my feet ETERNALLY if I made this for him! THANK YOU!!!

    And of course like most people I love the Fall. Halloween is in the Fall. Nuff said! 🙂


  45. Alberta

    I would love to have this book. I love summer and fall, and I enjoy the fresh fruit from the summer and I like pumpkins recipes for fall.

    I follow you on Pinterest as well.

  46. Kayla H

    I love both fall and spring just because of the changes! Winter and summer tend to feel stagnant. Fall and spring feel much fresher! and fall brings the anticipation of the holidays and spring brings the anticipation of summer, and much of the time the anticipation seems better than the actual results!

  47. Amanda

    I’m a new subscriber and absolutely love everything you make!! You are seriously a woman after my own heart with all this popcorn and PB yumminess right now! My favorite season is fall. In my younger days, I used to be a summer girl, but I’ve grown to appreciate the beauty and overall sense of coziness of autumn. So glad it’s nearly here! P.s. because I adore your recipes so much, of course I’m following you on Pinterest!!

  48. Emily Andersen

    That book looks awesome! It most definitely looks like it will have a ton of recipes for me try during my favorite season, which is FALL! Also, I follow you on pinterest and actually am a habitual re- pinner… Lol I think I just coined the term re-pinner:)

  49. Maryjoy

    Absolutelyl FALL! Is my favorite, has always been my favorite and will continue to be my favorite! Best food, best weather, best clothes, best sports! And now the best popcorn recipe, which I am going to make and bring to my son’s college football game this weekend for tailgating! What is not to love about Fall and Peanut Butter Popcorn?! Are you kidding me? COME ON!!! Would love the book to see other recipes!!!!!

  50. Totally in agreement with you and Kristan – summer is dead to me! Fall is my favorite season because I can now wear pants everyday and don’t have to worry about wearing shorts and what I look like in shorts. Shorts suck. Also it’s time for pumpkin everything, which is the best!

  51. “Fits me like a Spanx.” Oh my gosh, I snorted! I’m all over this fall stuff. Summer is gone. Gone. Gone. And this peanut butter cup popcorn? Honey, I’m thinking of sending my son off somewhere so I can make it and it would be my own personal stash. No one would ever, ever know. Well, except my Spanx.

  52. Fall is my favorite season. I love the smell, fresh cool crisp mornings and the plesent afternoons. The colors are vibrent and beautifyl. All top of that we have Halloween, Thanksgiving and my birthday!

  53. Amy P.

    It’s so hard to say what season I love the best. It would have to be fall! Def. love anything baked with pumpkin or apples! I also love the leaves changing colors and the anticipation of the holiday season!

  54. My favorite season is what I call the Holiday Season, from October 1 through Feb 17 (the day after my birthday!). You’ve got Halloween in there, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, and my birthday, all in just a few short months.

  55. Shelley

    I love Thanksgiving! It’s a wonderful reflective time with family, friends and great food without all the fuss & stress that often accompanies Christmas etc.

  56. Molly

    I love fall! I love being able to wear jeans and a sweater – there is so much less maintenance involved than summer-wear! 🙂 Also – I love your ceramic berry basket – it’s so cute!

  57. Ashley

    My favorite season is fall! I love all the wonderful colors, the crunching of the leaves and my favorite holidays are in the fall. What is not to love??

  58. Debbie Lindsey

    I love the fall. There is nothing better than the cooler weather, the beautiful changing of the leaves and enjoying comfort food and drinks with my friends and family.

  59. Mrs Mattman

    My most favorite season is summer. Love the sunshine and being outdoors! Although, fall is close runner up with all the delicious pumpkin recipes I can make.

  60. Lisa

    Definitely fall. I love getting the sweaters out and getting back into a,routine after the summer.

    This recipe looks awesome and I would love to win the book! Thanks for the chance!

  61. Lisa

    I like Fall and Spring because both have their good points of either cooling off after a hot summer or warming up after a cold winter . Right now I’m looking forward to Fall because I need some cinnamon in my life. And pumpkins.

  62. Heather

    I love Winter! I grew up in the Mid-West but live in California now, so I miss the real winters with snow and everything. Summer about kills me…we hit over 110 for 8 straight days this year!

  63. Jennifer

    By far my favorite is summer. No I don’t like the idea of cramming myself in to a swimsuit but my birthday falls right in the middle. So I always make myself a banana cream cake its a family tradition that and See’s candy.

  64. Nancy

    My favorite season is Spring! The hummingbirds come back and we love to feed them and watch them. Plus, all the beautiful flowers blooming and the fresh air. After winter, it is so good to finally feel some warmth!

  65. Lisa

    I love the change of seasons, but I have to say that summer is my favorite. Flip-flops, icy drinks, barbeques, lounging by the pool under the warmth of the sun. Fabulous!

  66. Caley

    I have to say fall…probably because it’s the one coming next. I switch my preference depending on the time of year, always loving what’s in store! That’s why I live in Colorado. 😉

  67. Kristina

    YAY! I love the Our Best Bites ladies!!! And I LOVE their first cookbook. I can’t wait to see their new one. Thanks for the chance to win it! My favorite season is October-Januaury only because of all the times I get to cook up delicious recipes. The weather is okay, but the food is Fabulous. 🙂

  68. Jessica

    Is there such a thing as Nutella season? I guess that’s pretty much all year for me… 🙂 Definitely love the fall best – pumpkin and Nutella go together so nicely!

  69. Marcia

    My favorite season is Fall. The cool days, cooler nights, the smells of fireplaces, the gorgeous colors, the memory of jumping in a pile of freshly raked leaves….yep, my favorite has to be Fall!

  70. Terri Bemavides

    Wowie Zowie….I can’t wait to make this stuff…looks so yummy. I’m nuts for the fall season , because I adore Halloween, Turkey Day and Xmas, of course!

  71. Ann F.

    This popcorn looks amazing! You and I must live on the same alley–’cause this popcorn is right up mine, too. I feel like a copycat, but my favorite season truly is fall. It’s so beautiful here (NW Oregon) that time of year: the leaves changing colors–gorgeous gold, red, orange… and the summer heat turns to lovely fall warm. Oops, I get sidetracked. I can get distracted by shiny things and lint.

  72. Jaime Boudreaux

    My favorite season is Spring. I live in South Louisiana, so the only weather we have is hot and hotter! Spring gives it as nice balance….until the rain starts!!

  73. cindy

    Summer is my favorite time of year, I hate the cold, the dampness and the rain. give me the long days and warm weather. I love August the best because the garden is in full bloom and canning is just ahead, yum fresh veggies.

  74. I love Christmas! Just the feeling you get around that time makes me smile 🙂

    And my husband is from Texas where the seasons are Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Christmas so Christmas is a time that we can enjoy together 🙂

  75. Norma

    My favorite season would have to be winter, because I LOVE the Christmas season! I do more baking and decorating in November and December than any other time of the year. I follow you on email and love your posts. I gain so many wonderful recipes and a lot of information on this site. Thanks for sharing the way you do. I’d love to win this book. I’m such a cookbook collector!

  76. danielle

    My favorite season is winter, and has been for as long as I can remember. Fall follows and spring and summer with their allergies and lame heat are tied for last.

    1. Well! Being number 386 to enter for a cookbook…everyone wants this book and if we don’t win…I believe we’ll buy it. As for me, I will be making this Peanut Butter Popcorn for our church Holiday Bazaar and I already know that it will sell out! Thanks for sharing a GREAT recipe! Also I went to your Pinterest and I LOVE it…I will be following ALL. Have a great day! Dee

  77. Danielle P

    I LOVE Fall !!! Cool weather, jeans and sweatshirts. Apples, pumpkins and a warm kitchen… I already follow you on pinterest and facebook 🙂 And check your website everyday to see what wise wisdom you have for us and of course what yummy treat 🙂

  78. Tina

    I love all of the seaons, except Winter, for different reasons. Spring is when everything comes alive again. Summer is all about easy living. Fall is just beautiful.

  79. It’s a toss up between summer and fall. Summer b/c that’s when my birthday is and fall b/c I like the cooler weather and love fall baking. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I already follow you on Pinterest!

  80. Tammy Ferguson

    Fall has always been my favorite season!! Love new Fall clothes and love the Fall treats!! Like this popcorn!! Gotta try it! Thanks for what you do!!! 🙂

  81. Janelle

    I love autumn! It is my absolute favorite – the changing leaves, the cooler weather, the pumpkin recipes and the smell of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger! Mmm…

  82. Joan

    Favorite season: Choose one. Rats. Then, I guess it is Fall. But, because I worked for many years in an office that didn’t grant leave from September until Election Day, and that included Saturdays and Sundays, I found that I started enjoying Spring more than I did fall. I still love the change of colors that comes with fall, the crispness in the air and the change in cooking that goes with fall. But, spring with its bright colors is now a very close second.

  83. Jacqui

    My favorite season is definitely the fall! I love the cool weather and all of the fun activities that come along with it 🙂 Not to mention Halloween is my favorite holiday!!

  84. Leah

    wow, this book looks awesome! I would have to go with Spring, because I love all the colors and life and the weather is always so gorgeous! Although Fall is a close second…gotta love those fall flavors!

  85. Fiona

    I love fall! I wish we could have six months of fall and maybe one of winter, just over Christmas, then back to fall until March and right into Spring. Canadian winters can get a bit long. And cold!
    But mostly, I love fall because I can bring out all my pumpkn and apple recipes, and start earing my knee high boots and sweaters again.

  86. Denise Wilson

    It’s so tough for me because I actually live in an area with all four seasons! Al though I love fall I think spring is my favorite!

  87. Jillian Locke

    Autumn will always be my favorite season. The clean air, the intoxicating colors, pumpkins and witches and ghosts and goblins; Halloween is my Christmas and fall is my happy time. It brings me to life. I really think Tim Burton needs to expand on his idea of Halloween land, because I would absolutely move there. Cider, pumpkin beer, pumpkin pie, apple pie, frosted cookies, candy corn, chili, stew, all sorts of delicious comfort foods and spirits. My have a pretty amazing half-sleeve tattoo to commemorate my favorite holiday – I started it last year when we got that freak snow storm (NH), and Halloween was cancelled for the first time in the history of Halloween. Love, love, LOVE me some fall!!!!

  88. Heather

    Getting on-line to print this recipe for tonight! I love Fall because the Young Life kids start their weekly Bible studies here, every Thursday. I love making homemade treats because our group pulls from all socioeconomic backgrounds and neighborhoods. Lots of the kids don’t get too many home-cooked meals or special treats since their moms work far longer and harder outside the home than I do. Your recipes are always a big hit among the high school crowd, their FABULOUS volunteer leaders, as well as my family. They are easy for me to prepare before a gaggle of kids come streaming in the door. LOVE that I’m able to have fun treats for them. Now I’m preparing two batches of goodies every week: one to keep for the YL kids, and one to send to Baylor to my freshman and her roommate!

    The cookbook giveaway sounds great. And I’m already a subscriber AND a Pinterest follower!

    And after a hot, humid summer (still is, actually) in HOUSTON, TEXAS, I always look forward to this season.

  89. And my favorite season is fall. Along with all the holidays, I just want some cooler weather! Any recipe from Our Best Bites is a winner. I have made their Cinnamon Caramel Corn with Pecans & White Chocolate (aka Cinnamon Bun Caramel Corn) several times and it is TO DIE FOR!!!

  90. Aimee O.

    My favorite season is definitely fall. The weather gets cooler, the leaves change color, and you make warm comforting food! My daughter follows your website (regularly) and we love Our Best Bites! Great job on all of your recipes! I bet shes tried most of them! Keep up the good work!! 🙂

  91. Tami G.

    I love summer the best…all the juicy fruits and veggies are abundant…homemade pies and ice creams, hayrides, and lake time…this book looks amazing…hope I win!

  92. Cindy Dilworth

    My favorite season/time of year is the last day of October. I know it is Halloween, but it is our fav at our home because that is the day we get out all the Christmas trees! Yes…I have a sickness and have at least 7-9 full sized trees up for the Christmas season. We pass put candy to the trick-n-treaters, make pizza and turn on Christmas music! It is so fun to see the looks on kids (and parents) faces when they “spot” a tree up! LOL My kids LOVE Christmas even tho’ they are 16 – 23 with the oldest being married. One day I will enjoy this tradition with my “grands” too! 🙂

    1. terry

      My favorite season is summer! I love the heat, the beach (after tourist leave for the day), flowers and fresh veggies from the garden!!!

  93. Suzette B.

    Living in Florida, I have to say that my favorite season is winter. That’s when there’s less humidity (great for my hair!!) and no hurricane/tropical storm warnings….YAY!! I have to say also that this recipe couldn’t be more well suited for me if I had invented it myself. 🙂

  94. This looks AMAZING!! Gonna have to try this soon…..thanks for sharing!! My favorite season is fall, followed very closely by spring. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  95. Jennifer M.

    My favorite season is fall! I saw another commenter say how she’s made Our Best Bites Cinnamon Bun Caramel Corn several times and that it’s to die for! I couldn’t agree more! It’s my favorite OBB recipe! Delish!

  96. Barbara:)

    Fall is at the top of my list for the BEST season. Time for fresh apples, pumpkins, cooler weather, and Halloween an extra excuse to eat chocolate:)

  97. Dlonna

    My favorite holiday is 4th of july. I love homemade ice cream, grilling, watermelon, everything that is food fun for the summer. Christmas is a close second.

  98. Michelle

    Oh how I love summer! Lazy afternoons with a fruit platter, BBQ dinners eaten outside with the family, light summer desserts. Bring on Summer!

  99. Marianne Child

    The popcorn looks dangerously addictive — which of course means we must have it for Halloween, our favorite season for CANDY!!!!

  100. Alycia

    I work in the schools so you think I’d love the summer, but I adore Autumn! I love the colors and the crunchiness of the leaves and Halloween and all the great mini candy bars that are suddenly everywhere!!

  101. Michelle

    I think my daughter would love this! Her two favorite snacks are Reese’s and popcorn, so why not combine them…and I may just have to try a nibble too! 😉 I love each new season as they come, but I would have to say spring is my favorite…love seeing all the flowers coming into bloom. Also following you on pinterest! 🙂

  102. Julie

    I love winter! Christmas and the lights are beautiful – although I enjoy seeing it all from the comfort of my living room with a cup of hot cocoa!

  103. Laura B.

    My fave season is FALL!!! The pumpkins, changing leaves, perfect temperatures! And I love Peanut Butter, can’t wait to try this recipe!

  104. Loel

    Favorite season is Summer…all the way. No winter coats needed, no boots and you don’t have to spend 20 minutes getting ready to be outside for 5 minutes when your kids are cold from the snow and ice!

  105. Sue Long

    My favorite season has always been spring, but it seems like spring gets skipped over every year, so I have made autumn my favorite season!

  106. Alessandra

    Before I moved from Italy to Houston, TX my favorite season used to be summer but now I definitely changed my mind! I love winter, hot cocoa and Christmas cookies!

  107. I also ‘follow’ you on Pinterest and ‘like’ your blog on Facebook 🙂

    By the way, your caramel apple cheesecake is AMAZING! I made it last week… and I think I used a little more caramel than the recipe called for…. but it was sooo good!

    Fall by far especially if we have an Indiansummer. Great colors, foods and outdoor road trips to the wineries, pumpkin fields and apple orchards!!!!!

  109. Ann Marie C

    Fall is my favorite! Especially since I moved to Colorado! I actually like all the seasons here, but as I said Fall is my favorite! I would love copies of those books! My son is a budding Chef! Really, he has hopes of attending the Culinary Institute in Denver! He would definitely love these books!

  110. Paula B.

    Fall… Hands down is my favorite time of year… Friday night lights, hot apple cider, thanksgiving, pumpkin spice EVERYTHING, my birthday… Warm days, cool nights for cuddling and reading a good book.

  111. Colleen

    My very favorite season is fall, the really hot weather is over and you can leave your windows open to feel the wonderful cool breeze. The trees and bushes change their colors to those wonderful fall shades and you have campfires (even in your own backyard) and get to smell that great campfire smell. I love to cook and bake all of the time and this cookbook looks just great! Thank you for the chance to win it! I’m having a girlfriend weekend this coming weekend and I’m going to make this peanut butter cup popcorn for them as a surprise, it looks so yummy!!

  112. Blair Campbell

    I love fall. I love when everything is pumpkin. Plus I love making caramel apples and making pumpkin recipes!! Who doesn’t love some pumpkin seeds.

      Hey Blair! Just wanted to let you know that you were selected as the winner of the Savoring the seasons giveaway! I will be emailing you with the details!

  113. Melissa T

    My FAVORITE season is fall. The colors, the cool crisp air.. THE BAKING!!!!
    Thank you for the recipe and the chance to win the book!! I WILL be making this recipe VERY SOON!! May even pass it out as gifts this holiday!

  114. KellyR

    Fall, especially the early part of it. It usually snows before Halloween up here, and once the first flurries fly, I’m ready for late May to get here!

  115. That recipe would be dangerous in this house full of chocolate and peanut butter lovers! Yum! I love the long days of summer, but the beautiful fall weather. If only we could combine Fall weather with the long days, that would be perfect! 🙂

  116. Amy

    Gotta say I love spring. Nothing like fresh, warm air after being copped up all winter, the beauty of all the flowers, and the promise of a great summer with my kids. And it doesn’t hurt that my birthday is in spring too!

  117. Amy

    Oh! And I just started following you on Pinterest and pinned this as a great idea for teacher and co-worker gifts for Christmas. Looks like a great idea!

  118. I used to love summer because it’s always sunny. I can stay outdoors even till 8pm because there’s still daylight. However, this past summer, I felt my energy drained too much by the sweltering heat. So now, I can’t wait for summer to be officially over and for fall to begin!

  119. Elliot Amos

    Fall, absolutely. It’s just cool enough to have warm desserts and just warm enough that cold ones aren’t out of the question. 🙂

  120. Michelle

    Forever Fall
    I love that so many people picked Fall. I had no idea it was so popular. All my friends love summer (overrated). I love soup and pumpkin and warm apples and popcorn! Fall rules 🙂

  121. Rose

    Winter has the snow and Christmas. Spring has the lovely warm rains and the new flowers and summer has the beautiful long days of sunshine and ice cream, but fall is all about the food–pumpkin pie spices, hot apple cider, comforting soups and all of that Halloween candy! So fall has to be my favorite season.

  122. April

    I love winter. There is a stillness to the winter, everything is at rest while the pure white snow blankets the earth. I love the rosy cheeks you can only get from playing in the chill of winter. I miss the sparkle of the trees when it gets so cold that ice glitters on every branch. Winter is chance for us to rest, reflect and rejoice.

    Winter leads to spring, and a time of renewal.

  123. Lauralee L.

    Mmmm…thanks for the yummy recipe! My favorite season? Tough one! I love both Autumn and Spring but at the moment it’s Autumn…but it has to be one where leaves magically turn from green into a symphony of spectacular hues of reds, oranges, yellows and browns where you can watch them lazily float to the ground bestowing thick blankets of leaves all over the ground to rake up into piles to run through or fall in.

  124. Lauralee L.

    I hopped over to Pinterest to check out your addictive looking boards ( I could spend too much time there) and am now following you! Thanks!

  125. Heather

    I wonder if you could ever tabulate the results. . . cause it looks like Fall is dominant here. My whole 35 years summer has been my favorite. BUT. . . fall is starting to creep up there in my personal standings. This summer was just too hot.

  126. YUM! I think my family would go gaga over this! What a treat!

    I can never decide which season is my favorite but I believe Spring is my favorite (as much as I adore fall baking and sweaters I love that “newness” Spring brings). 🙂

    ~Miss Rachel~

  127. Amy T.

    Ok, this popcorn recipe would be great for my daughter’s Halloween treat giveaway at school…wrapped in a cello bag with fall ribbons!

  128. Eleanor

    YUM! I totally would have used Kettle Corn… I’m kind of obsessed with the stuff.

    I LOVE the fall. Totally the best time for caramel, peanut butter, and chocolatey goodness. YUMM

  129. Sarah Nagel

    I really love Fall, it is my favorite season out of all 4. I live in Lake Ozark, Missouri and I get to see the beautiful trees changing colors and the sun setting earlier over the lake. I love the nice, cool weather and sleeping with the windows open at night. It’s perfect bonfire and cuddling weather, plus it’s not bitter cold here like the Winter and not too hot like our Summers. I absolutely love Autumn!

  130. Rona

    My favourite season is summer. I mean, I would really prefer it without the bugs, but summer means no socks or tights, skirts and shorts, not sweaters or jackets or boots or scarves. You can go straight outside without contemplating weather (will it freezing rain? snow?) – I live in Canada… And there is cycling and swimming and relaxing in the back yard… and open windows and fresh fruit and veg… love summer!!

  131. Melanie

    Fall is by far my favorite season! Back to school, back to outdoor activities (too hot & muggy most of the summer here!), back to holidays, back to baking – it feels like life gets a kick in the pants in the fall. And I am soooooooooo making this popcorn over the weekend!

  132. Rijaab

    My favorite season is late fall! i love all the flavors, aromas, and fashion associated with that time of year. I wish it could be late fall all year long 🙂

  133. Danielle Beinke

    I love the start of every new season, but Fall is probably my favorite! Not only does the 100 degree weather go away, but lots of yummy comfort foods come with it. Also, it’s leading up to my favorite time of year – Christmas!

  134. Alinna Satake

    I love fall. I could eat pie and drink cider and eat crockpot meals all the time. But it’s hard to argue with the melons and stone fruit of summer. I am torn.

  135. Rebecca G

    I love fall because its so cool and nice, but I also love spring because everything is blooming and its the awakening after the winter… So much greatness about each of those seasons… I can’t decide!

  136. Ashlie

    Wow – that is a difficult question, there is something to love, and some great unique seasonal foods with each. It is a very close tie between Fall and Spring, but if I have to pick just one, I would pick Spring. After a long cold winter, it is so rewarding to see the first signs of new life!

  137. Ali K

    If we’re talking food I love the flavors of fall but living in the NW makes me love summer best since we see so little sun here I hope to soak up all I can get in a short time!

  138. emily willingham

    i’m torn between 2 seasons – spring and fall – so my favorite season would depend on what time of year i’m asked – this time of year fall is my favorite season. 6 months from now, spring will be my fave – make sense?

  139. Jessie F

    I love fall! mmmm so many yummy baked goods and my place gets to spell like cloves!!

    Also I am now following on pinterest! yay for new food blogs for me!

  140. Shelby

    I always love when a new season starts. I love that by the time I’m ready for a change, it’s time for a new season! Right now fall is my fave 🙂 Thanks!

  141. Anne

    Autumn time is the best: my birthday, cooler temps, and trees in their colorful splendor. And don’t get me started on fall food… I love it all! Thanks for the chance to win OBB’s amazing cookbook!

  142. Tanja

    My favorite season is winter. Which is great, since I live in northern MN and I would be miserable, if I didn’t love all the snow. I just love to go outside, shovel the driveway, then come in and make some cider and bake some cookies.

  143. Amy H

    Summer! Summer! Summer! Summer! Summer! Summer! Summer! The pool…fresh summer food…going to the lake…sun stays up late…kids out playing night games…did I mention the pool…?? 🙂

  144. tina canaday

    Being a Colorado Native I’d have to say Fall. I love the golden Aspen’s and the cool nights. I love your pintrest site….keep up the good pin’s!!!

  145. Brenda

    I love the fall wether. That is when it is the best time to bake. It i s warm in the house when you have to oven on. I love to start baking aroung the middle of Sept. to get some ideas for the Holidays. I would love to win this great giveaway. Thanks for offering.


  146. Wendy Perkins

    Spring! The cold winter days are over and everything is turning green again. I have to admit that every season has its good points though.

    I love Our Best Bites – I’d love to have their new cookbook.

  147. Sarah R

    The popcorn looks yummy. My fav season is spring. I plan my garden all winter and get to start it in the spring. Playing in the dirt (before the summer sun roasts me) just makes me smile. Thanks for the giveaway.
