Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


This sweet and salty treat, great to munch on. Also cute for gifting.
Very easy using Your favorite movie theater candy. But dont forget the popcorn ;) I worked at a movie theater when I was 17, I used the most popular candy that I sold. I picked up My candy at the dollar store and used of course movie theater microwave popcorn. Total cost a few dollars and can make approximatly 6-8 servings.
