      Yummy! Made these tonight for Halloween of course. Used to have these same kind as a kid made by my classmates mom. Made them orange and used 1 cup confectioners sugar less than called for and they turned out sweet enough. Also didn't have all white corn syrup so used some golden, oh and margarine rather than butter. For those who don't buy confectioners sugar in a box, 16 oz is 3 1/2 cups by weight, so I used 2 1/2 cups and it was plenty. Also, did the gloves and cold water to shape into balls and it worked great. My family has already put in orders for Remembrance Day and Christmas. Thanks

      I made these today for a party with six Kindergarten girls. They chose the color (pink) and made all sorts of shapes. I found they the popcorn did not harden too quickly, which was perfect for this age. We stuck large, straight pretzels in the balls and used candy corn for garnish. Popcorn Lollipops! Good flavor and super-easy. I will definitely make these again.
