    "This was good, but not enough saltiness to counteract the massive sweetness. It also seemed too oily and the only way to keep white chocolate from getting all over your fingers was to refrigerate it."

    "I am surprised at all of the great reviews. I served this at a football party based on them. When I first put it out, I endured the jokes about "get me a cereal bowl so I can have some cereal." This was not eaten and there were not that many other appetizers, so that was not the reason. It was very sweet. I wasted a lot of money on the ingredients as I didn't like it either and threw it all out after our guests left. It makes a lot so I am surprised that some reviewers felt that they had to double the recipe. Will not make again."

    "I have been making this for Christmas handouts for a number of years. I also add popped pop corn and M&Ms with nuts instead of adding peanuts. I use Almond Bark White chocolate. I make several batches at Christmas and give to family and friends. Everyone loves it."

    "I just made this for the first time. I didn't add the nuts. I like the taste but I had a hard time getting the topping to stick to the ingredients. Did I do something wrong? I am wondering if the topping was to thick. I always have better luck melting something like this in a double boiler. Anyone else used a double boiler before"
