"My daughter loved this. She has severe food allergies, including wheat and dairy, so I substituted the butter with dairy free (vegan) buttery stick. I also used corn chex, raisins, GF pretzels in addition to the popcorn. I ended up baking it for 12 min rather than 15 since I started to smell the honey burning. Great snack and better than the store bought Chex mix. Will definitely make it again."
