Hey friends! It’s Amy from A Cup Full of Sass. I am back to share another fun recipe with you. Now that fall is quickly approaching I find myself baking more than ever. Candy Corn Popcorn Balls make the perfect treat for anyone – kids and adults. Every year on Halloween my grandparents make Popcorn Balls for all the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It’s a tradition we look forward to every year on October 31st!
This recipe is so easy to make. Each popcorn ball is covered with caramel and let’s not forget the oh so popular candy corn. But if you are not a fan of candy corn, just leave it out of the recipe.
These are so easy to make and would be the perfect dessert to serve at your next Fall or Halloween party.
