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. Pulled out my old air popper for the first time in ages not sure how much poped popcorn I had about 6-8 cups (1/2 cup unpopped)it was perfect. I had no problem with the balls keeping - Read more ...
  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.

  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.

  9. Was esay to make and was a big hit!
