Wow! This is really good! I only made half the recipe amount and it turned out just fine.

Very tasty, but a bit too much coating (even for the original recipe in the Aug/Sept 1996 issue where the cereal was shown as 3 cups). I've increased the popcorn to 18 cups and the cereal to 3.5 cups which my family prefers.
