Sunday night during potluck my friend, Jan, brought up the topic of popcorn balls. I know, that sounds strange. We were talking about all kinds of recipes and such. I’m sure the guys were thrilled.
Anyway, I mentioned that I had made popcorn balls a couple of years ago at Christmas time.
Today I got a message form Jan asking for my popcorn ball recipe. It took a bit to unearth it, but I found it. It was the last recipe in the box. I thought maybe some of you might like to have the recipe, too. Looks like I clipped it out of the newspaper at some point.
They did turn out pretty cute though. I added red and green M&Ms to make them look a little more festive.
You have to work pretty fast making popcorn balls otherwise it will just be a big clump in the pan.
Buttered hands are key as well.
I also used my tube pan to make popcorn cakes for a few folks.
Good luck, Jan. Let us all know about your experience.
