popcorn ball recipes

the scoop

Growing up in Iowa, popcorn balls were a favorite, especially around Halloween.  When the kids come home for the Christmas holidays, I have them around for snacks.  I make them small and keep them wrapped in clear plastic wrap.  I found this great recipe in a how-to book, Martha Stewart’s Christmas, 1989.

first things first

Popcorn is a sensible snack for in-between meals.  It’s low in calories and a good source of fiber.  Be creative…if you’re just making popcorn or balls…combine spices, seasonings, raisins, nuts, candy corn and/or cheeses (my favorite is Kraft’s Parmesan Style Grated Topping).  The best popcorn is cooked over the stove…3 T olive oil to 1/3 c popcorn.


Popcorn balls are great fun to make with your kids and your grandchildren. Besides eating, you could even hang some in the trees for the birds.
