Melts in your mouth. Clean up was not near as difficult as I anticipated. I will definitely make this again.

I followed this recipe exactly and turned out great! Very good fall snack! I wanted to add that I bought 3 full size bags of corn puffs and that was almost exactly 20 cups. That might be helpful when you're purchasing the ingredients.
