Reese's Popcorn Munch

Reese's cups are our all time favorite candy around this house, so I thought it was only fitting that I made Reese's Popcorn Munch to give as party favors for our annual Christmas party we host each year.  The party was last night and we had so much fun hanging out with friends and family :)

The recipe is super easy.  I used our air popper to make the popcorn with 1/3 cup of unpopped popcorn.
You can microwave the chips, but I prefer to melt them in a glass bowl over a pan of hot water.  I don't have to worry as much about them burning that way.

This popcorn munch is so, so good!! 
I put mine in clear cellphane bags so you can see all that chocolate, peanut butter goodness, but you could also put it in a cute tin or popcorn box to give to neighbors or other special friends.

1/4 cup peanut butter chips, melted with 1 tsp. shortening
