All four of my kids loved these! What better review could I give? Even I really liked these, and I'm not a popcorn ball fan. The kids are already talking about the next time we make them and the first batch isn't even gone yet! :)

I made these a bit smaller (I got about 30 in a batch)tinted them in pastel colors, wrapped them individually in plastic wrap, and used them in 2 seperate Easter egg hunts as "popcorn eggs". They were a hit! My 10 year old son and I had a great time making these - our only problem was trying to keep my 2 year old daughter from snatching them up as soon as they were rolled into balls. My husband has requested I make a batch just for him SOON. Thanks for such a fun and tasty recipe.

The first batch I made exactly like the recipe, and they were not as chewy as I preferred, more like regular popcorn balls. So next batch I doubled the marshmallows, and used 1/2 cup corn syrup and about half the powdered sugar. They were harder to work with but even 4 days later were soft and chewy and didn't hurt my teeth

I am 47 years old and I think these are the first popcorn balls I have ever made. Made a batch for Halloween and I was impressed with how fast and easy these were to make, not to mention how good they tasted. This will be a great recipe to have the grandkids help with come Christmas time....thanks for sharing!!

These were very good. They were soft, chewy and stringy. I think I didn't quite add enough popcorn-Next time I will add just a little more. My 7 year old had a qreat time helping me make these. Thanks DivineMom5 for submitting this recipe.

I'm not going to rate this because I think I did something wrong. They didn't come out chewy at all - just very crumbly. They cooled down really quickly and were then impossible to shape. Maybe someone can tell me what I could have done wrong....
