Popcorn balls are great anytime, but they are especially fun to enjoy at Halloween or Christmas time.
When I was a young girl (many years ago), my family would gather in the kitchen to make this old-time recipe of my Mom’s. We would make these wonderful popcorn balls for Halloween every year to give out to the neighborhood kids. When I became a Mother, I continued this tradition with my children and their friends. It was a fun every year preparing for popcorn ball day.
Time was spent popping the popcorn into large brown paper grocery bags. The kids enjoyed it when I would pour the soft crack into the popcorn and slowly stir it in until it had cooled off enough for the children to dig their hands into. We would form the popcorn into sticky balls and wrap them in wax paper to give out as treats. Now we just enjoy them at home with the family, as homemade treats are not a good idea to give out for trick or treat.
