Matt used to make popcorn balls every year for his grandfather because his grandma couldn’t make them. It became a family tradition every year and eventually a cousins tradition! As our family grows we find it harder and harder to get everyone together. This year we did our family tradition just the 3 of us! It was country music on the radio and popcorn ball making in the kitchen. Bryce helped dump in the popcorn and stir in the sugar syrup mixture. Of course he was the master taste tester too!
We had a great time!!! This is not a healthy recipe but it sure is a a good one that I had to share! I hope you enjoy as much as we do!!!
