  8. I grew up on this recipe! Last week the kids and I found really cute popcorn bags at Michaels and decided to make this and deliver it to neighbors. So yummy!

  9. The first part sounds like No Bake Cookies. I wounder if you could modify it with the addition of cocoa powder and then get that same taste. You could even make the peanut butter corn, and then the chocolate corn, and mix them together… hmmm… might have to try that!
