So I made some popcorn balls. I always associate popcorn balls with Halloween and realized that I had no idea why that was the case. You can make popcorn anytime of year, so why would I only think to make popcorn balls before Halloween?
To Google I went.
I did some research, and I found out that popcorn sales peak in the fall due to harvest season. Since Halloween falls around harvest, people would make popcorn balls to pass out to trick-or-treaters. I guess that explains why I didn’t know the relation…you can’t trust those homemade treats anymore! So sad, but true. I think you can buy pre-packed popcorn balls these days, but it isn’t the same. Might as well just make them for yourself and friends to enjoy! The ones I made are even a little on the healthy side.
First up was the Caramel Apricot Popcorn Ball.
And then the Peanut Butter Honey Chocolate Chip Popcorn Ball.
