Popcorn balls are a popular treat for Halloween. They're easy to eat and can be passed out as a snack at a party or a gift for trick-or-treaters. There are plenty of brands out there that sell popcorn balls, but there's no need to buy them when it's easy to just make your own! This recipe will provide you with plenty of tasty popcorn balls for this Halloween

Once the popcorn balls are finished, each one is wrapped in cellophane and tied with black and orange ribbon. For the cellophane, use either black or orange. If you can't find ribbon that is both black and orange, either color will do. Pick the opposite one from the color of the cellophane you're using.

This recipe is quite quick to make, so you should be able to get plenty of popcorn balls done in a short amount of time. Each batch makes eight popcorn balls, so plan accordingly depending on how many you'll need. Have your kids give you a hand to make the process more efficient.
