The maned wolf is the largest canid in South America. They don’t look like a normal wolf. They look like a fox on stilts! They like to eat all kinds of things in the wild from rabbits, birds and fish to sugarcane and fruit.
The wolves in the zoo eat a variety of foods, but they really like peanut butter. They would love this yummy snack (without the chocolate chips).

Cuisine: american
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 8 cups popped lightly salted popcorn
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • Melted chocolate chips (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place popcorn in a large bowl.
  2. Heat honey and peanut butter until smooth and a little runny. Add vanilla.
  3. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat.
  4. Spread out on to a cookie sheet to cool. Drizzle the chocolate over the top.
  5. Snacks don’t have to be sweet. If you want a savory treat, try tossing popcorn with paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and salt or curry powder and turmeric. You can even use ranch dressing mix or taco seasoning. For a sweet alternative, try dusting with a little cinnamon sugar or just tossing with some vanilla. You can even add nuts or dried fruit to your popcorn to spice it up.
Notes
Honey may be natural, but it’s still a sugar. Use it only for a special treat! Popcorn is loaded with healthy fiber and air popped popcorn is a great snack. One cup of popcorn without any butter, oil or toppings is only 30 calories. Most movie theater popcorn is popped in oil. A small, unbuttered popcorn at the movies typically has more than 650 calories. A large has a whopping 1,200, which is more than half the food you need for an entire day. Microwave popcorn often has added salt, oils and butter.
