Reeses Peanut Butter Popcorn

We are on a definite popcorn kick at our house these days.
I have about a billion recipes stashed away just waiting to be made, but this one had the word 'Reeses' in the title so of course it made the top of the list.
Reeses Peanut Butter Popcorn
Recipe from Our Best Bites
1/4 c. popcorn (or about 10 cups of popped popcorn)
1 c. honey roasted peanuts
1 1/2 c. Reese's peanut butter chips
1/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chip
1 1/2 tsp. vegetable shortening or oil

Pop popcorn.
Remove any un-popped kernels.
Place peanuts and popcorn in a large bowl.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the peanut butter chips and vegetable oil or shortening and heat for 2-2 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds.
Drizzle the melted peanut butter chips over the popcorn and peanuts and toss to combine.
Spread the popcorn onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet.
In a Ziploc bag, heat the semi-sweet chocolate chips until just melted and smooth (about 1-1 1/2 minutes, mashing the bag every 20-30 seconds).
Cut a small corner in the bag and drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn.
Allow to stand long enough to become solid (you can transfer the pan to the fridge or freezer to hurry this step along).
When done, break the popcorn into small pieces and enjoy!
