Peanut Butter Popcorn Bars

 Peanut Butter Popcorn Bars
If you're looking for a fun snack for kids, try these chewy popcorn treats that have a mild peanut butter taste. They're easy to stir up and can be pressed into a pan to form bars or shaped into balls. Making them won't set you back much, since they cost a mere 4¢ a bar. —Kathy Oswald Wauzeka, Wisconsin
