Halloween Treat : Popcorn Balls on Stick

One treat you could always rely on being made in our family was popcorn balls. I can remember my grandmother making popcorn balls on her kitchen table. The excitement of eating them built as the day of treat came to be. I found this recipe on Parents several years ago and have made them a tradition at our house. While popcorn balls are quite yummy you also must know that they are quite messy as well. The stick allows little ones a chance to not get so messy. While we know that every little one normally loves the stickiness of the situation the stick is fun to hold and eat the sweet treat as well.

10 cups fresh popcorn
 1-1/2 cups sugar
Lollipop sticks

Melt sugar, without stirring, in a saucepan over medium heat for about 5 minutes, watching constantly to make sure it doesn't burn.  In a large bowl, pour melted sugar over top of popcorn. Mix popcorn with a spoon and cover thoroughly. Reserve some of the melted sugar for later.  While still warm, roll the popcorn into balls and place on wax paper. Its a little hot, so use plastic gloves if needed.  Dip lollipop sticks in the leftover melted sugar and push into the balls.
