    Made these for Halloween. Not the typical popcorn ball I expected. The vinegar and cream of tartar gave them a sour after taste. If not for that, I'd give them a 5. They were easy to make. See more in IMI II Reviews 10/31/17: Popcorn Balls

    Please consider adding this to the Popcorn
    group. You are the only one that can do that since it is your recipe. You'll have to join the group but you can always leave it after you add this dish, TIA.

    We did a couple extra yummy batch we added a little cinnamon. another batch we did a bit of choc chips, white choc+walnuts....then we did some red hots and a little food color. Just thought we would be a little creative! They are great with the extras too. add as little or much as you like....I don't measure....just eyeball it ;)

    Was so happy to see this recipe. My grandmother use to mix up popcorn balls in a big enamel pan, they were so good but never had any luck duplicating them for my grandchildren, had forgot she used tartar & vinegar. Think this is the recipe I needed, thank you so much for posting.
