    I made these with my grandmother for years. They are soft and delicious- and NOT made with marshmallow fluff! If using bag popcorn- make sure it is not buttered and use 2-3 bags.

      Glad to have found this recipe, it tastes just like the ones my grandma and the neighbors made for Halloween! (My camera flash didnt work so it looks yellow in the picture with the red striped plate). This will go in my recipe box for sure and will save it here too for backup! Thanks for sharing :)
