    Made as a snack for a bridal shower. Everyone was asking for the recipe. This stuff is amazing. My kids call it "crack corn"

    Great snack to make for a night of watching movies. I left the pecans out because I was going to share this with my in-laws and my FIL can't have nuts. The maple flavor was a tad to strong for me. I think next time I will replace the maple extract with vanilla. Made for April, 2009 Bevy Tag.

    Easy to make & oh so good! I did have to mix mine in a large bowl since a roasting pan was not big enough. Made for 123 HITS

    Yummy! This won't reach a week, probably in less than 24 hrs. I couldn't help but also add a variety of nuts such as pistachios, almonds, cashews,hazel and Brazil nuts. Mmm..what a delight! Thanks for sharing this, Boomette. Made for WZT4.
