Top Review by mummamills

this tastes really good when it's made, but I did have a few problems with the recipe. I couldnt boil the mixture for 5 mins, because it was quite thick after 3 mins, so I took it off the heat before it burnt. There wasnt quite enough mixture so cover all the cereals and popcorn, and it set almost the minute I poured it in. I only put it in the oven for 20 minutes, as it was crisp and crunchy by then, and as I said, tastes very good. Thanks Andy Pandy
