Delicious Popcorn Crunch

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Popcorn and candy in a candy sauce. Great for the holidays! Not too chewy and won't stick to your teeth (unless you overcook the sauce)! You can customize the candy, dried fruit, and nuts to what you like. Canadian Smarties® can be used instead of M&M's®. I've known people to press the mixture into a cake pan and cut pieces, too."

this is very good and a nice change from caramel corn, with many variations to suit your own taste, or in my case-what I had on hand. I used some mini M&Ms, caramel filled M&M's, peanuts, and r...
