Recipe Tips

Size-WiseThese popcorn balls are sure to be a hit at your child's Halloween party. They are fun to make and a serving, 1 popcorn ball, makes a nice sweet treat for each guest.

NoteFor best results, remove and discard any unpopped popcorn kernels before measuring popcorn into bowl.

Make it EasyLook for already popped air-popped popcorn in the snack section of your local grocery store. For best flavor, purchase a "natural" or "unflavored" variety.
