    Altered ingredient amounts. Good stuff! I ommitted the nuts. Very "pretty" and I also lightly salted the popcorn and maybe next time I will try using hundreds and thousands instead of the chocolates - 21 Jul 2008

    Everyone loved this. It made a lot more than my tin would hold, so maybe have another tin ready when you mix it. I WILL be making this again. - 21 Jul 2008
