I made 1/2 the recipe with microwave popcorn and the salty and sweet were perfect together! Tasted like a popcorn ball. Will make again! Made for October 2011 Think Pink Tag Event.

This stuff is addicting. I halved the recipe and it is a good thing I did...I ended up eating the whole bowl myself while watching a movie. The flavor reminded me of old-fashioned popcorn balls. I can't wait to make this again tonight. Made for October 2010 Think Pink Tag game.

thanks...i used it for Valentines Day treats for the kids
