Would you make it again?

5 stars from 1 rating of Pumpkin Spice Popcorn Candy Bars

This recipe for popcorn treats can easily be scaled up and down or modified to your tastes. I made these for the Fall, so they include nice Autumn flavors like pumpkin pie spice, candy corn and peanuts. However, there are a plethora of flavor combinations that would work just as well.

Super simple and relatively inexpensive this recipe is great for feeding a lot of people. Popcorn treats are basically rice crispy treats but with popcorn instead of cereal. Mix in different spices and ingredients to get a different flavored treat. Use your imagination to make interesting flavor combinations and thematic creations. Enough talk let's get to the recipe!
