"I made 4 batches of this for our Cookie Walk at church. It's always a hit! Delicious with or without the peanuts!!!!"
"What a great recipe. Didn't have any peanuts, put in pecans instead. My son said to add milk chocolate chips. Came out terrific! *****"
"We love this. We just leave out the peanuts."
"This is so yummy and by far much better than traditional caramel corn. No kernels to get chomp on with this one!!! A must at Christmas! I leave out the peanuts as my family isn't crazy about them in it."
