When I first started dating my husband his favorite ice cream was Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby. For me just about every ice cream is my favorite, but I have to admit that Chubby Hubby is pretty darn good. OK, it’s better than darn good! If I had it as often as I’d like, it’d be called Chubby Wifey! 🙂
How can you go wrong with peanut butter, chocolate and pretzels? You can’t!
I was thinking about what to serve for the Super Bowl and thought popcorn is always a great snack while watching the game, so why not make it a sweet treat? This is so great for a party because it’s so super easy and tasty beyond belief. This makes a huge batch perfect for a party but I’ve even made it for just my family. I had to give half to my friend because it was so good I couldn’t stop snacking.
- 1/4 c coconut oil
- 1 tbsp salt don't worry, no heart attacks here, most will stay in the bottom of the pot after corn is popped but his gets the perfect amount on the popcorn

Does the peanut butter harden? and become not messy?
