Trick or Treating & Popcorn Balls - Page 2

post #16 of 23
if you were giving them out to children you knew, then i think it would be ok. But if I didn't know where it came from then it would be trashed. Also nut allergies are common, my sister would be hospitalized if she ate something like that, without knowing nuts were in it!

i always make handmade treats only for the kids I know well in my neighborhood and I know their parents too. The kids love it, but I wouldn't give them to anyone I didn't know. I wouldn't let my kids have handmade treats unless we really trusted the person and knew them.

Please don't take this the wrong way - but when Iwas a kid, I usually got about 2 popcorn balls and I hated them! They were always stale and tasted like my grandma's house smelled! Kinda like moth balls! icon_lol.gif

I KNOW your's would be better! Although I would be a bit leary and I'd check the address out and maybe even call you to be sure you were the one who gave the popcorn. I like the idea of the ingredient list - maybe add your phone number also?

Our were made from jello - many different colors.

I don't even have a recipe, I just though I'd see what everybody thought. I'm a little bummed now. Oh well. Maybe I can find an occasion to make some.

Ali,

How about making them in Halloween colors for people like your mailman, check out girl at the grocery store, receptionist at Dr's office, etc? or of noy for halloween, then in Christmas colors for Christmas?

Ali,

If this is a recipe that you really wanted to make, you could call your local schools and ask when they will be doing their Halloween parties and make some to donate to the local school or daycare, etc. Or maybe even check with local churches to see if they are doing anything that for kids on Halloween to keep them off the streets and make some up for that event.


Sorry your bummed, it is not you, it is just the society has made all of us at this point!

I thnk that they would get thrown out .....We love them around here ...is it so much that you wanted to make them or the fact that you want to give out popcorn balls because Walmart has a large box of popcorn balls for $4.00 with 20 inside I buy 2 everyyear and keep my table stocked they are each wrappped.

i think i found a recipe on foodnetwork.com from semihomemade that list melting caramel squres with water melting in the mocrowave and then mixing with the popped pop corn..... I looked at the bag of caramels and it list the water ratio for caramels apples i think its the same for the balls since they have to set .....I know that they are super easy ....to make. I just wont for fear that Ill eat them all my self.
