For a popcorn ball taste but with less fuss, try these bars. Adding peanut butter and M&M's makes them fun. They're a hit with all ages.
- 4 cups popped popcorn
- 3 cups puffed rice cereal
- 2 cups peanut M&M's
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- In a large greased bowl, combine the popcorn, cereal and M&M's; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine the corn syrup, sugar and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Add peanut butter; stir until blended.
- Pour over popcorn mixture; toss gently to coat. Spread into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan. Cool before cutting. Yield: about 3 dozen.
