Trick or Treat smell my feet, give me something good to eat! Happy Halloween everyone! Do you remember singing that silly song as a kid? Walking up to someone’s door, ringing the doorbell and then …bellowing out a chorus of Trick or Treat.
Halloween was such a fun time when I was a kid. What a great time we had, dressing up in our favorite customs, the night was ours. We would run around the neighborhoods collecting candy, throwing water balloons at each other and maybe , just maybe, we would wrap someone’s house with toilet paper. It was all in fun and it was one night of the year that our parents would allow you to eat tons and tons of candy! It was a kids dream, a holiday just for us! Ahh the good ole days.
Today things are a little different, but we still have fun.
In keeping with the Halloween spirit of yesterdays, what could be more perfect than Popcorn Balls! Crunchy, gooey, soft, sweet and salty all rolled up in one delicious snack.
My son asks me to make these every Halloween and I am happy to oblige. This year I made an extra batch for our friends over at Fiesta Friday, my favorite link up party. Let’s head over there now and see what’s brewing …ooooh hahahahahaaa.
