These were so good we almost had a major family argument. It's probably my fault for just using the one bag of popcorn called for in the recipe. The mix of the popcorn, the nuts, the craisins and the chocolate was just amazing. After the kids decimated this one I had to quadruple the recipe so we could finish watching our movie on TV in peace. BTW, this is excellent for when you're PMS-ing.... ;-)
