This crisp bright-colored snack is more festive than traditional caramel corn. My family just loves! A friend shared the recipe, and I've given it to several people myself. Set out in pretty bowls, it makes a tasty table decoration. I also put it in sandwich bags for a children's party snack. -Kaye Kemper, Windfall, Indiana

"The only bad thing about this snack is you can't stop eating until it's gone! My youngest loves to receive a batch in her college care packages."
