Popcorn Balls are the quintessential fall or Halloween treat. This is a fun treat to make with kids! Whether you add candy to the popcorn balls or not, they are a gooey, delicious snack!
I have such fond memories of experiencing Halloween as a kid. There is something so special about enjoying holidays as a child. And I find it crazy how the little things that I enjoyed thirty years ago still give me butterflies. Like popcorn balls! Every time I see a popcorn ball, I think of those Halloweens where my mother would make me the most elaborate costumes and where trick-or-treating was safe and tons of fun and where I would load up on candy and devour it until cavities formed before my eyes.
Popcorn balls are the best fall or Halloween snack because they are ooey-gooey, they are easy to make and you can involve the kiddos in the process! While you’re at it, throw in some of that extra Halloween candy that is hanging out in your kitchen. Why not?!
