I had to make two batches of this since it went so fast. Started to make it for a hostess gift for a Halloween party when my kids and their friends quickly devoured the first batch. Great idea and so easy to make. Thanks!




I made this popcorn treat last night for my son to take to school for his Halloween party. The kids loved it and the teacher said she gave in and also had some. Many want the recipe. Thank you for a great site.


I made this for my son's birthday treat for preschool. It was so easy. It's hard to find recipes that a wide variety of children would enjoy, especially if your own does't like chocolate. I can't wait for the kids to try it. I'm bring extra copies of the recipe to hand out! PS i went to a different website today to find a recipe and no othre website can compare to yours. Thanks a million.


This was so good...........I made it at Christmas to put in the food gift bags that my sister's and I make every year for our kid's. They like it so much that they all wanted the recipe!


My daughter and I tried this, because she loves popcorn, and it was a big hit! Thank you!
