Caramel Popcorn Balls

Caramel Popcorn Balls

I have fond memories of Halloween.  When I was little, I remember helping my mom in the kitchen tie bows with curling ribbon and yarn around popcorn balls to hand out to the trick or treater's.  Back in those days only the "RICH" people bought candy, everyone else gave out homemade goods.  (Or at least that was what I thought.)  At this time my mom was a stay-at-home mom and she loved to be creative. Although some would call it a little bit "CRAZY" I loved it.  She was known for her philosophy of if you are going to do something: Do it Right, Do it Big and ALWAYS at the LAST MINUTE!!!   It never failed that we were tying bows right up til the moment that we got to leave to go trick or treating.  There are so many times as a mom now I watch myself trying to repeat those same memories for my kids.  We have continued to make Caramel Popcorn Balls for my kids to give out to their cousins and other family members.  So if you need a little homemade

TREAT this will do the TRICK!
