It must be the season, but I have a hankering for popcorn balls. Wasn’t there a popcorn ball house in everyone’s childhood Halloweens? I hope so, because it’s a wonderful memory.
For me it was Mrs. Cooper, my sister-in-law Mary Ann’s mother. She always made popcorn balls and I couldn’t wait to get one. They were delicious. Absolutely delicious.
I was thinking about them today. No doubt this trip down Halloween memory lane was inspired by the season. Regardless, I realize my recipe repertoire is missing this little gem. I need to correct that. I wonder if I might lay my hands on Mrs. Cooper’s recipe. If not, perhaps a suitable substitute.
A new quest….
