    Just like I remember my Mom making for us as kids when we went camping. I didn't use gum drops and I didn't have any peanuts. So, I used different kinds of chocolate chips (peanut butter chips, milk chocolate, and semi sweet). It was a hit with the kids and adults.  -  20 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We used microwave popcorn.. 4 bags of popcorn 1 & 1/2 cups of cashews and 1 & 1/2 cups of M & M's. It was too much Popcorn to fit in the bundt cake pan, so we put the rest in the bowl. what a treat. Everyone love it.. Wanted to share our idea and experiment with you. With 13 teenages here for a party it was gone!!!!Yummy!!Yummy!!Yummy!!!  -  04 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yum Yum, so good. I like how you can cut slices just like a cake. Wasn't too keen on the gumdrops and I am a major gummy fan. Next time I'll leave those out and maybe substitute m&m's.  -  21 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
