These were good, not great. Be sure to eat them right away, as the popcorn gets soggy quickly. I made them at night to give as treats at work the next day, but the were already soft by then. I also found it very difficult to get the sugar mixture evenly mixed over all the popcorn.

Just made them tonight for my 5 yr old to take to school for his birthday tomorrow. We just used popcorn, all natural pb,and honey since we didn't have the other. They are amazing and additive! True test tomorrow, but I'm confident. Thanks for the recipe.
These simply did not stay together for me. After trying in vain to smash the mix together to make balls, I ended up leaving the remaining popcorn mix loose and snacking on it that way. Too bad - the ingredients are delicious ad wonderful. I then went on to make the traditional popcorn balls where you cook the sugar mixture to the hard crack stage. Very sticky and that's what makes a popcorn ball.
