1
cup coarsely crushed peanut brittle (6 oz)
1
bag (14 oz) caramels
1
tablespoon water
1/4
teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  • 1 Butter bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan. Remove and discard unpopped kernels from popped popcorn.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix popcorn and peanut brittle. In 4-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave caramels and water uncovered on High 2 to 4 minutes, stirring every minute, until smooth. Stir in vanilla.

Make this recipe and wrap the bars individually the day before the event.

Chocolate lovers can stir in 1 cup chocolate chips or candy-coated chocolate candies before pressing in the pan. Or, go nuts! Stir in 1/2 cup chopped peanuts instead.
