"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."

"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!!"

"[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."

"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."
