    We ended up eating the unused pretzels and M&M's also. Cocoa made it very chalky

    I popped my own popcorn and this was lacking in the flavor.

    It was much better after adding the powered sugar as suggested by the previous person. It still seems as though something else is missing but is a nice treat.

    The sugar all went to the bottom and the cocoa overpowered the cinnamon. We ended up just eating the unused pretzels and M&Ms.

    My kids and I made this today for family movie night. We agreed that it was a little bitter from the cocoa, so we added a couple of tablespoons of powdered sugar. It looked a bit dusty, but tasted much better.
