“We did as suggested and made this on our ski vacation. It was very good. It’s basically just like rice krispie treats but made with popcorn. Cut a piece and just munch away!”

    How outrageously extravagant. I want to make this, but with caramel instead of marshmallow. It will be like Crunch n’ Munch Cake!
