Reviews for Popcorn Delight
"A definite make again. Took this today as a Halloween treat and all loved it. I would like to try making again, but drizzling melted caramels or dark chocolate on the mix before going into the fridge. Update: Made this for Christmas treat this year and used Christmas Rice Krispies. The red and green really add a nice pop of colour."
"People enjoyed this. I added M&Ms."
"I made this receipt about three Christmases ago and was surprised at how simple the recipe was and at how much it made. My daughter, who was 7 at the time, helped me make it and now it is our tradition to make together and jar/package to give away to family/friends at Christmas. She shared a large jar full with her friend's family this Christmas season and she said they ate it all within 30 minutes! I would recommend this recipe to anyone who loves popcorn!!"
"I have made this over and over again. Everyone loves it and can't stop munching on it wherever I take it. I usually use microwave popcorn and it still turns out great. Very easy and simple!"
"Fast, easy, and delicious!"
"This was delicious! I was a little suspicious but it's yum! I used small amish popcorn so the kernels were smaller. I thought it tasted a bit like fluff-r-nutter sandwiches!! LOL thx for the recipe:)"
"[quote user="vvarella06"]What is white candy coating???[/quote]It's essentially white chocolate for candy making. You can find it in two place in your local grocery store. The bulk department will have melting discs available in multiple flavors, usually made by Merken. In the baking department you'll find Almond Bark, it comes in white and milk and looks like a big block."
"What is white candy coating??? Please give bran name if you can. Thank you"
"What is the nutritional information, is it possible to get that?"
"I don't care to much for popcorn so I used the puffed corn pops and it turned out wonderful!"
"I am surprised that it says to store in the fridge.....do you all do that? What in the ingredients needs refrigerating? Doesn't it make the popcorn soggy?"
"its AMAZING! I've made it multiple times and it always tastes great"
"I am going to make this for Christmas, so easy and lite to eat. Going to add food coloring"
"This is great, everyone couldn't stop eating it. Have been wanting to try but didn't take time till I need a to take something to a party, all my usual things where already being made, soooo glad I made this, my husband wants more already...Thanks"
"Wonderful Recipe! Perfect blend of sweet & Salty."
"Delicious. Easy to make. Perfect for packing in small bags for Christmas treats."
"The recipe sounds great, but does anyone have an alternative for diabetics. Both my husband and I have recently be diagnosed with having Type 2 diabetes and I'm looking for low carb recipes"
"My mother-in-law gave me a modification of this using cashews instead of peanuts and leaving out the peanut butter. Now I can make a duo for gifts!"
"I also used bagged, lightly salted popcorn."
"I used vanilla almond bark and generic Rice Krispies. This was very easy to make and was ready to eat in 15 minutes. Good mixture for social gatherings or just to have as a sweet snack."
"This popcorn is a sweet and salty mixture that does not last long!"
"Use air popped because the microwave popcorn is full of carcinogens."
"did you use air pop or bagged popcorn?"
"HOLY COW this is AMAZING! and it did a disappearing act rather quickly too! Would be fantastic for Christmas baking gifts!"
"I used almond bark. (Generically called "bark Coating")"
"Very sturdy if you have to mail treats to anyone."
"I didn't make it yet, but it sounds yummy, so I will be making it. Candy coating is chocolate made into round discs that look like flat Hershey's kisses and are used for candy making, as they melt quickly. You can find them at a candy supply store or at an craft supply (usually carry them) store. The rice cereal is Rice Krispies or similar store brand cereal."
"I love this recipe! I just finished making it and have been munching on it. Hopefully there will be enough for the Halloween party! I used orange colored vanilla flavored candy melts (available at craft stores) and it looks very fall-inspired. I used Spanish peanuts because that's what I had on hand and it looks and tastes great. I will definitely be making this again, using different colored candy melts to fit the season!"
"This recipe was so easy! Will definitely make it again. For the rice cereal I used Rice Krispies. For the candy coating I used the Wilton Candy Melts (I chose to use the Red color - Vanilla flavoring, as it gave it a nice "bloody" look.) Hope this answers some of your questions."
"I have not made this as yet because of all the questions like others have posted. Sounds good, but PLEASE explain the rice cereal, white choc, etc."
"Used white chocolate and Rice Crispies cereal. But I would leave the marshmallows out the next time."
"I would like to know also what is white candy coating?It doesn't look like white firstname.lastname@example.org"
"What does rice cereal mean?? Rice Chex, Rice Crispies Whaat??"
"I would like to know the nutritional facts on this reciepe. Not that it would stop me from making it again."
