What a great idea for the children. This is not only a pleasing recipe for the eyes but also for our mouths and tummies! My 5 year old daughter loved helping me in the kitchen to make this recipe for Halloween!!!

    Kim Alfini from Severna Park, MD

    I had to make two batches of this since it went so fast. Started to make it for a hostess gift for a Halloween party when my kids and their friends quickly devoured the first batch. Great idea and so easy to make. Thanks!

    I made this popcorn treat last night for my son to take to school for his Halloween party. The kids loved it and the teacher said she gave in and also had some. Many want the recipe. Thank you for a great site.

    nerds popcorn

    Michelle Lanzillotti from SOUDERTON, PA

    I made this for my son's birthday treat for preschool. It was so easy. It's hard to find recipes that a wide variety of children would enjoy, especially if your own does't like chocolate. I can't wait for the kids to try it. I'm bring extra copies of the recipe to hand out! PS i went to a different website today to find a recipe and no othre website can compare to yours. Thanks a million.

    This is a great recipe! A little sticky, but wonderful for the kids to take part in. I gave all three of my boys a bag to shake and once it was all set, we made birthday goodie bags for the kids to take home after the party. They all loved it!
