"This is similar to making crispy rice squares but using popcorn instead." — Angela

This turned out great! I ended up using six cups of popcorn instead of two. Very easy to make. It reminds me of the chocolate covered popcorn that I bought from the boy scouts.
This recipe is a flop. It is not like rice crispy treats. The proportions are wrong. The butter marshmallow mixture is runny and deflates the popcorn into an unchewable mess.
Very good! Kids loved em too! My littlest one even wanted to take them to school when it was her day to take treats. 8 or so cups of popped corn is what I used. I think 2 is a typo.
Just made this! Adding red food coloring for holiday fun & I used holiday M&M's and they looked adorable. Pulled out my old air popper for the first time in ages, not sure how much poped popcorn I had, about 6-8 cups (1/2 cup unpopped)it was perfect. I had no problem with the balls keeping shape, I just used lots of butter on my hands and took from the top of the pan (cooler) shaped in to palm sized balls and set on wax paper to set up. Thanks! I think I will make a green batch to go with it for neighbor treats!!
There should be more than two cups of popcorn in this recipe. Mine came out too marshmallow-y. They just need more popcorn.
Was esay to make and was a big hit!
THE CHILDREN IN MY FAMILY JUST CANT GET ENOUGH OF THEM!!!!!!
I just made a bunch of these just now for my sons birthday party tomorrow I didn't use the chocolate bits though, I used sour candies. They taste GREAT! They stuck together very well, I added a bit more marshmallows though, just because we like them chewy. But all around a good recipe.
