MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2012

Well, I must say that this recipe did not live up to my expectations. Although my batch is edible, I will not make it again. I watched it closely in the oven but had no trouble with it burning. I simply was disappointed with the flavor. I think the next time I will simply use my regular caramel popcorn recipe and add the pretzels and M&Ms to that. I actually made this recipe for gifts and am a bit embarrassed to be giving it.

Loved this recipe! I also baked in 9x13 pans and adjusted time to 45 mins. Came out perfect!

I made two batches for gifts, and really liked it. I didn't have trouble with it burning, I put it in two 9x13 pans instead of two 15x13x1, so maybe it was a little thicker and made a difference. I also added craisins. Had a good flavor!
