"My mom made these every Halloween when I was a kid and you could still give this out as a treat. It still is a treat as a moist and chewy fall snack. You can make into balls or leave loose and serve like carmel corn if you prefer."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

white corn syrup
I am the submitter for this recipe. Shorecook considered drizzling chocolate over these. I recommend doing it! I have made this as loose popcorn(like carmel corn), drizzled melted chocolate on it, put in tins and gave as Christmas gifts. People loved it.
They aster rest, but I couldn't get the popcorn to stick together in balls.
WOW! What a treat! The only trick here is hiding them from Hubby. I never had peanut butter popcorn before, love it! I'm thinking maybe of drizzling them with melted chocolate, after all, I am a chocoholic! Lilcat, you certainly have a great recipe here. Thanks for sharing!
Easy and fast to make with a nice, softer tooth bite than some popcorn balls. Not sure if I miss-measured the popcorn or made the popcorn balls larger but I did not get 16. The popcorn was well coated and held together nicely. This will become a regular Halloween treat. Thanks for sharing.
These need to come with a WARNING! Do not make in presence of husband, or children of any age. Do not make if you're even the slightest bit hungry and come to think of it do not make if you like any of the ingredients. Why? They will be gone in the blink of an eye! These are delectable! I was happy to realize that if you're going to follow directions and make 16 balls, then they are a good size. That means less time involved in prep which makes this treat even better in my opinion. I would love to try with drizzled chocolate as suggested but I don't want to mess with the perfection that these already are! I'll be making these again this week for a special trick or treat for our close neighbour kids. Thanks Lilcat for sharing your childhood treat recipe!
Nothing hits the spot at the end of long day when kids are sleeping and hubby is stuck at work late! Super quick and easy whip up, and snuggle up with a blankey and guilty pleasure television! I may be guilty of eating a whole batch alone but shhhh
Yep, totally addictive. A half cup of unpopped pop corn makes ten cups of popcorn, so I just cut everything in half. It was plenty. I didn't have light corn syrup so I used dark. It gave it the color of Cracker Jacks. We didn't bother to form popcorn balls -- just ate it from the bowl. We split it up and added chocolate to half which was mandatory for the chocoholics in the family. It was terrific both ways.
This was my first time making popcorn balls. They were SUPER easy, came together fast and taste amazing.
