    You know how there are certain things you just can’t make because you know you will eat all of it and will have to blame someone else for eating it…..I think this might be one of them. (trying not to lick the screen)

      haha! I totally know the feeling! I gave away 3 bags this morning because I knew I would eat it all if I didn’t.

      haha no worries. Sorry, just updated the post. And yes It’s the whole stick of butta!! I used margarine though. Either should work great.

    This recipe is amazing! My daughter is having an end of the school year slumber party so I made some up last night. I ended up making 3 batches! :) 2 for her and her friends and 1 for me to take on a road trip with my friends this weekend! It was so quick and easy. Thanks for sharing!

    What a easy recipe. I have made the kind that you have to put in the oven and keep turning it. What a pain that is so haven’t made that to often. This is so much easier. I can’t wait to try it..Looks so yummy!! By the way. Do you use popcorn that you pop in the microwave and with the butter? Thanks for sharing…

      Yes it’s super easy… you just have to stir it for about 10 min which is kind of a pain (but definitely worth it). I used the microwave popcorn “homestyle” it’s not to buttery.

    Popcorn is one of my most favorite snacks, and M&Ms are my favorite commercial candy. The two together? Heavenly! Might just have to whip up a batch for the girls’ sleepover tonight!
