Mix the honey and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and let simmer for a couple minutes. Remove from heat and add the peanut butter. Keep stirring until the peanut butter has melted and then add the vanilla.
While the mixture is still warm, pour it over the popped popcorn and stir to evenly coat the popcorn. Alternatively, you can add the popcorn to a brown paper bag and add the mixture from the pan on into the bag. Shaking the bag to evenly coat the popcorn is a great job for a little one!

Not only will this add a colorful design element, it will turn these tasty treats into an exquisite dessert!
Peanut butter and chocolate are delectable together, and adding it to some popcorn is a GREAT way to add some fun to the mix!
