      I can't really rate this since I made a lot of changes! I found out, after I had already started the recipe, that I didn't have quite enough corn syrup on hand. So I wound up using about 1/2 cup corn syrup and 1/2 cup of honey. Then I replaced the Rice Chex cereal with popcorn! Then, to crisp the popcorn, I baked it for 30 minutes or more (I wasn't paying complete attention) and stirred it every 10 minutes (every 5 towards the end). Anyway, we loved it, so thanks! :)

      Just fabulous! We really enjoyed snacking on this mix; I reduced the recipe by half, and used sugar. I couldn't find my candy thermometer, so I used water to determine my 'hard ball stage.' I think I took it off too early, tho I corrected it by baking at 300º for 20 minutes, stirring well after 10. Thanks so much for sharing, bmcnichol! I know that I will be making this again! :-)
