I had never made popcorn balls before and this recipe looked like a very easy recipe to follow. Plus, I had all the ingredients in the house so I decided that I would give it a try. They turned out very well. The recipe was very concise and direct. There was nothing to misinterpret. I did notice that the mixture would stick a lot to my hands when making the balls. The recipe said to put butter on your hands to keep from sticking. I had to keep reapplying the butter because it would stick too much. However, it didn’t seem like the mixture stuck together because I had to pack them together just to stay. I used many different types of popcorn that I had left over from the popcorn bar we had at my wedding. I used buttered popcorn, kettle corn, and cinnamon-flavored popcorn. I would have to say that the best one was definitely the kettle corn. I would suggest that everyone try it with kettle corn. I also tried to add m&ms to the mixture with the buttered popcorn; however, that just made the chocolate melt which made the balls less sticky and they fell apart.
