Made this because I was looking for a Halloween snack. Turned out great. Very colorful. We liked the sugar coating which gave it a great taste and crunch. My kids were impressed. Thanks Nurse Di.
I made this as a snack for my kids. However, my biggest kid (husband) couldn't stop eating them. Yummy, crunchy, sweet and salty. The candy corn an M&M's give great color and taste. A big hit at our house. I am going to have to make more and hide it from my husband. Thanks Nurse Di.
I rated this 3 stars because I brought it to work in a tin and it took 3 days before it was all eaten. This made me think that people thought it was just so-so. From experience, if something is really tasty at work it will be gone in half a day.
