These have a wonderful taste and would have gotten 5 stars, but I couldn't get them to stick together, they kept falling apart! Maybe it's because I added Candy Corn to mine, but together or not, they are very easy and very tasty. :)

These turned out great. They were really easy to make and not to sweet. I did add more popcorn then the recipe called for. Thanks for te great recipe.

I used this recipe to make "candy coated" popcorn - I didn't form it into balls. Very good! I've made it a few times now and sometimes I add maple flavoring to make maple flavored candy corn. Makes a nice snack!
