Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 cup soft brown sugar
  • 180 gram butter, melted
  • 3 free-range eggs
  • 3 cup flour
  • 1 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 400 gram white chocolate buttons
  • 3 cup popped corn, plus extra for topping (I used Kettle Korn in support of Eat My Lunch)
  • 1 cup salted roasted peanuts
  • good-quality caramel sauce, to serve

Method

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 180°C fanbake. Grease and line a 30cm x 40cm slice tray with baking paper.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, brown sugar and melted butter with a wooden spoon.
  • 3
    Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the flour and baking powder until just incorporated. Add the white chocolate buttons, popcorn and peanuts, stirring to combine evenly.
  • 4
    Spread mixture into the lined tray, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon. Press extra popcorn into the surface if desired. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
  • 5
    Drizzle caramel sauce in a zig-zag pattern over the top then leave in the tin to cool completely before cutting into small squares.
