      Oh my gosh, I have been looking for this recipe for YEARS!! My Great Aunt used to make these when I was very little and lucky for me she only lived two houses away! These are just like those I became so addicted too :) Thank you so much Chabear01 for posting, now I can make my own. (I knew I'd find it here)

      This was my first time making popcorn balls and it was very easy! I don't like the flavor of corn syrup, personally, or else these would be five star, I think. I also added extra cocoa because I wanted to use up what I had left...it was good like that but following the recipe would have been better, I think.

      Great recipe! The cold water on the hands works great for keeping the popcorn balls from sticking to your hands. Thanks!
