Halloween Popcorn Balls
Ahhh the picture above says it all.
Halloween and popcorn balls go hand-in-hand.

When trick-or-treating first became popular it was not uncommon for kids to get homemade delicious treats in their Halloween bags and it was all safe to eat.  Now that we live in a more dangerous time, parents no longer allow their children to eat any homemade treats but they do allow them to eat the sealed factory made candy. You know what?  You guessed it- You can now buy Halloween packaged popcorn balls that you can give out to your trick-or-treaters and keep up the old tradition of popcorn balls. It's not homemade but it is packaged and kids still love them as much today as they did years ago.

Homemade Popcorn Balls are now enjoyed in different ways during the Halloween season. We always find them at Halloween Carnivals and Fall Festivals. We always find them at every private Halloween party that you go to and we have to tell you that you can't go wrong if you give out decorated popcorn balls as your parting gift for your next Halloween party. They are easy to make and they look so beautiful wrapped up and tied with black, yellow and orange ribbon. It's a very Festive idea.

Popcorn Balls are a wonderful snack treat that's just perfect anytime of the year but we find that most families make popcorn balls at Halloween. Why is Halloween the most popular time you ask?  Well the peak period for popcorn sales for home consumption is in the fall and since Halloween is at Harvest time (in October) we find popcorn balls everywhere.


Decorating Popcorn Balls

Be creative in decorating your popcorn balls. One really fun idea is to shape your ball into different shapes while your mix is still hot and shapeable.
You can do this very same thing with rice crispy treats too.

For more than 25 years, October has been celebrated as National Popcorn Poppin’ Month; however, it became "official" in 1999, when then Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman proclaimed October as National Popcorn Poppin’ Month.

Spider Shaped Popcorn Balls:  Use a popcorn ball recipe that includes chocolate chips or a chocolate popcorn ball recipe. This way the spirder will look more realistic. Shape popcorn ball round but with a flatter and long shape (like a spider). Use liquorish candy strings for the legs and hard candy for the eyes.

Pumpkin Shaped Popcorn Balls:  Use hard candy to stick to the front of the pumpkin for his face and the stem of the pumpkin. When mixing your popcorn make sure you add orange food coloring for that pumpkin look.

Skull shaped Popcorn Balls: Skull shaped popcorn balls are used a lot for Pirate theme parties. This one is a little harder to shape but well worth it in the end. Use a recipe that uses only white popcorn. Color the inside of the eyes, nose and mouth with cake decorating jel or cake icing. Red is usually the color of choice. For the patch over the eye you can use candy rolls, melted chocolate or use a real black pirates eye patch. If you don't like the pirate theme then how about putting candy worms or bugs coming out of the eyes and mouth. Yulk!

Bowl Shaped Popcorn:  This is a really great display for a party table. Shape your popcorn into a bowl shape and let harden. Use the bowl like a real serving bowl full of delicious treats.  The best part is your guests can eat what's in the bowl and the bowl itself.here to add text.
