    flower7's Note:

    Alton once posted this on his website and said that he always cranks out a bushel or two of it during the holidays. He also said "Dole this stuff out carefully. It is highly habit forming." I totally agree and for this reason have no earthly idea how many servings it makes! Depends on how much you can eat! LOL Especially good to anyone who likes the salty-sweet combination. Cooking time is cooling time.

      To make it more "adult" omit the peanuts and M&M's and instead add dried cranberries and cashews. The cranberries add a tartness that's really good with the sweet and salty.

      This is very tasty. I added craisins to mine and I really liked that addition. Because the recipe makes a lot I, it is helpful to use a large punch bowl to mix it up. I am planning to make this with craisins and red M&M's around Christmas for gifts.
