Delicious Popcorn Crunch

Recipe by  

"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."

The sweet popcorn was easy to make. The sugar syrup was not too hard or too soft. I made some witches' shoes out of black cardstock and scrapbook paper. I added the popcorn to a clear bag and tied it with a ribbon and placed in the witches' shoes.

This is a very fast and easy popped corn treat! Used two packs of Microwave popcorn (Kettle Corn), 1 ½ c of M&M peanut butter treats instead of nuts. Lots of syrup coating to go all over. Very tasty! Two large cookie sheets!
