  1. Pop the popcorn according to the package directions. While the corn pops, cut the candy bar into 1/2 inch pieces. Spread the popped corn onto a microwave-safe platter (I like to use paper plates for easy clean up). Top with candy bar pieces. Heat on full power in the microwave at 30 second intervals, or until candy is melted.

At first, I was very skeptical about this recipe. How messy would it be? Would the popcorn burn with the extra microwave time? But, I was craving that salt/sweet thing . . . so I thought I'd give it a try. No mess, no burn and DELICIOUS!!!! Will make over and over again. Thanks for the GREAT idea!

It didn't melt all together well at all. It didn't even taste that good. Not sure what all the rave is about.

We raided the Halloween stash and only had Baby Ruth candy bars left. They worked great. The kids loved this. Don't bother with the mini peanut butter cups. They never seemed to melt enough without the popcorn getting too chewy. I think Three Musketeers would work really well with its soft marshmallow center.

My husband, a popcorn and Snickers fanatic, thanks you. He LOVES this and I have to admit that it wasn't bad :) Thank you.

Yum! Wish I had more than what this made! I think if you chill the candy bar first, then use a grater, you might be able to more evenly distribute the candy over the popcorn.

My sister LOVED this popcorn. I was very skeptical of it but thuoght I would give it a try. I only had fun size candy bars leftover from halloween so I used milky ways and added some marshmallows, peanuts and peanut butter. I'm not a sweet tooth so this was my sister's kinda thing.

I made this for some friends during a movie night and now they insist on it every week. A tasty and simple treat!

I have been making this for over 20 yrs. Our local skating rink used to sell this and they called it Mary Anns. Not sure why but love this stuff.
