Friends, are you looking for a healthier treat to make for a Game Day weekend? Inspired by my friend Maria’s peanut butter recipe at Two Peas and Their Pod, and partnering with Blue Diamond Almonds, I whipped up these delicious Game Day Almond Butter Pretzel Popcorn Snack Cups that are out of this world.

There are so many popcorn recipes and combinations to try these days, but so many are also a bit too sweet for my taste. This recipe is as good as it looks, on the lighter side with an almond butter and honey glaze, mixed with Blue Diamond’s Toasted Coconut Almonds.

Start with some fluffy white popcorn–lightly salted is fine. You can use air-popped or a light microwave popcorn, but stay away from the heavily buttered varieties.

Oh, and add a few other ingredients too, like cranberries, white chocolate, and our family favorite Blue Diamond Toasted Coconut Almonds!

Crunchy and fun to serve in little cups for Game Day. That way your guests don’t have to reach into the bowl and get their hands all sticky!

Not too sweet

I’ll be making this again for weekend parties that we’ve been invited to, and can’t wait to customize it with the final team colors – possibly with some M&M’s or other snacks that are colorful.

It will truly be in the spirit of fair play. :)

But I’ll still be drizzling the popcorn with that almond butter and honey mixture!

And, guess what? It’s not that sweet like the usual caramel popcorn.


So, who’s your favorite team, and who are you rooting for this weekend?
