RECIPE BACKSTORY
I love popcorn balls. I made these for my little girls school pizza night. Also I ate these LOTS as a kid during the fall, on hay rides, haunted houses, etc. I just kind of pulled this one out of my behind after checking several recipes, and testing a few out I made one that worked best for me. I hope you like it.
