    A family favorite! I like to add 1/2 t. almond or 1 t. vanilla extract for an added "yum" factor. 16 cups popped corn is about 3/4 cups unpopped corn.  -  07 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Our family loves this. I don't use gum drops, but double the M&M's instead! I also like that you can make it to coordinate with the seasons, celebrations etc! Thanks for a fun recipe!  -  30 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really good! Didn't use gumdrops and used plain peanuts. True, it must be eaten within a couple of days or it gets gooey.  -  12 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
