After following other suggestions of using less mashmallow (we used half a bag) chewy caramel bites and 3 bags of microwave popcorn we decided these were a hit.

  3. Just made this! Adding red food coloring for holiday fun & I used holiday M&M's and they looked adorable.

  4. Very good! Kids loved em too! My littlest one even wanted to take them to school when it was her day to take treats. 8 or so cups of popped corn is what I used. I think 2 is a typo.
  5. I just made a bunch of these just now for my sons birthday party tomorrow I didn't use the chocolate bits though I used sour candies. They taste GREAT! They stuck together very well I added a bit more marshmallows though just because we like them chewy. But all around a good recipe.
  6. There should be more than two cups of popcorn in this recipe. Mine came out too marshmallow-y. They just need more popcorn.
  7. This turned out great! I ended up using six cups of popcorn instead of two. Very easy to make. It reminds me of the chocolate covered popcorn that I bought from the boy scouts.
  8. This recipe is a flop. It is not like rice crispy treats. The proportions are wrong. The butter marshmallow mixture is runny and deflates the popcorn into an unchewable mess.
  9. Was esay to make and was a big hit!
