This does not work. Impossibly sticky, proportions of the ingredients seem off and I did not have a pan big enough. Had to throw it out after adding the popcorn not wishing to waste pretzels or ruin my saucepan. One 5 year old son very disappointed.

Like wrestling a marshmallow monster. Impossibly sticky. Have just managed to force it into the tin, with the aid of several spoons, lots of baking parchment and a rolling pin. Good luck.

You've rushed and overcooked the marshmallow. First ask what might've gone wrong, then give your savvy opinion, you're not a food critic nor a professional.

I made this and added some butter and it worked well. Be warned it is very messy to make and you need a really large bowl to mix it all in but my son has eaten 5 pieces already so that's testament to how tasty it is!

This sounded delicious, and I set about making it, but I feel there is some butter missing from being melted with the marshmallows as they didn't melt easily on there own and were almost impossible to mix in with the dry ingredients, which proved to be way too much, which again makes me think some butter is missing from being melted with the marshmallows. It all tastes great, but next time I would add butter in with the melting marshmallows.

Just made this and melted a knob of butter first then the marshmallows. All melted very easily. only used about 60 grams of popcorn instead of the 140 grams. I left it to cool a little having transferred it to the tray and then used my hands to flatten it. all very easy and tastes good. might be even better with some added peanuts or chocolate too.
