I have never made a popcorn ball before. Whew! I feel better after getting that off my chest! I was nervous and excited about the opportunity to feature my craft and recipe skills at the same time, but it all came down to the pictures in the end! I could not decide how to make the little pumpkins look. I had an idea. I wanted each pumpkin to have either a trick or a treat inside. The pumpkin jack-o-lanterns look so innocent just sitting there in their bowl.
You would never know what you would get until you bit into it. Would it be a wrapped chocolate candy or would it be a super-gross bug!
Totally disgusting, yet harmless. And…Hey, I didn’t choose the pumpkin – you did!
I used all Good Cook products to make my popcorn balls. The one I use the most in my home is the Good Cook batter bowl. It is so convenient especially in this recipe because it hold the perfect amount of popcorn to make one recipe!
