Popcorn Balls On A Stick

Popcorn balls are not as popular around here as they used to be but I can remember a time when one would receive a popcorn ball in their trick or treat basket it was like getting a great reward. Now it seems that there are so many other cool treats that kids are happy with. I believe that this recipe is still awesome as a treat on trick or treat night or even as a party treat. Since it has a stick and can be eaten without getting hands messy I believe it is an awesome treat for either. Popcorn balls have traveled a long while since the days my grandmother would make them in the kitchen and oh they were so good back then and I know these will be special as well.

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

Melt sugar, without stirring, in a saucepan over medium heat for about 5 minutes, watching constantly to make sure it doesnt 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.
