Did not care for this and it is expensive to make.

Sorry to say this recipe will burn as written! I used a glass microwave bowl and my mixture was burned after just 2 1/2 minutes. I should have just stopped when I stirred it after the first 1 1/2 minutes; that probably would've been about right. When all was done, I thought the mix was dry and did not have a very good flavor. The main flavor I tasted was the red pepper. I regret I didn't read the reviews before making this recipe.

I did not care much for this recipe. The nutrition information is incorrect. 1/2 cup equals 120 calories.

I just tried to make this, and it burned after two minutes in the last cook cycle, and I did stir it. Not sure if there is a typo, or if I should have used a glass bowl instead of a plastic bowl.

Really liked this, so did my kids. I had no problem with it burning. Make sure to stir 2 times like the recipe says. Nice snack! Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe is a disaster! The mixture burned after 2 minutes in the final step. NEVER AGAIN!
