This recipe has a creative twist with cinnamon, almonds, white chocolate, and cranberries that we really enjoyed! While I followed the recipe I used slightly healthier options such as non-GMO popcorn popped with coconut oil, raw almond in place of roasted, and I had to thin out the chocolate with a little bit of coconut oil. This was such a hit I am planning on making a huge batch to share with my graduate class as a treat!

I love how all the flavors blend together. I used organic corn, which I popped myself (1/3 cup unpopped), which seemed to be a good amount.. My chocolate just did not want to melt nicely so I finally just mixed the softened chips in with the rest. When I looked at this recipe, I thought the kidlets would be the fans but the adults were far more enthused. I do have to say I probably would not have been rushing to make this without having the parchment to work on with what I expected to be melted chocolate. This is a fun recipe that I will make again and again.

Wow, this was really good. Not what I was expecting. I decided to make it, after reading the comment that this was like Harry & David popcorns. However, I have to say, I thought it was better. It is much more fresh tasting. I also used real white chocolate, which I now realize they do not use more likely. I remembered at the grocery store I wanted to make the recipe, but didn't have it with me. I ended up buying the 4oz real white chocolate bar over the 12oz bag of white chocolate chip coating made from powdered milk and not real chocolate. So, I made a 1/2 recipe. I was still short 2 oz of white chocolate, but it was plenty. I used a bag of Orville Redenbacher gourmet natural lightly salted. It worked fine as the saltiness, made it overall not too sweet as opposed to plain popcorn. As I was short some of the white chocolate, I cut the cinnamon back to 1/2 tsp for 1/2 the recipe. I followed the rest of the recipe as is, just breaking up the regular sized pretzels. This was a fun recipe. I had more than half the ingredients already in the house. Just never would have thought to put them together this way. Interesting recipe. ty

This was REALLY good! I had intended to take a photo, but we ate it all before the sun came up! It was even loved by my very picky two-year old! Great recipe and completely recommended. I used: organic popcorn that I popped myself, stick pretzels, and coconut oil to melt the white chocolate instead of butter. (package directions.) Thank you!

Love, Love, Love this recipe! Although my picture doesn't do this recipe justice, TRUST ME, this is DELICIOUS! My white chocolate chips didn't melt the way I would have liked but that is something on my end, not the recipe's. All of those flavors coming together work into a sweet and salty piece of heaven. My grandsons ate this up! The Reynolds Kitchens parchment paper was a God send for this recipe too. What could have been a mess to clean up after turned into just crumbling up the parchment and tossing it in the trash. What could be simpler? TY for this recipe! I will be making this one again.

Oh my goodness! I doubled the recipe to take to a family reunion this past weekend and oh my, what a hit!!! Stuck to the recipe, no tweeks, just one substitution. I subbed out the almonds for pecans as I had them and walnuts in the freezer, and only a few sliced almonds. My brother held up a ziplock bag half filled with the Reynolds snack mix and yelled, "I scored"! I use tons more Reynold parchment paper than their foil for my baking , etc. needs. No stick and super easy cleanup. Thanks, Reynolds Parchment Paper!

Yum! The cinnamon adds a nice touch. I used some mixed nuts I had on hand as well as a variety of dried fruits. Good stuff we will make again!

Addictive--if you love sweet and salty snacks, this is for you! I didn't use the full amount of chocolate because I didn't want it to be overly sweet (there's a fine line between snacks and treats!), and added about 9 ounces. My youngest girl helped me make it, and she couldn't stop eating it. My oldest will love her new after school snack, and using parchment paper makes clean-up easy.
