Tootsie Pop Popcorn Balls are great for trick-or-treats.
I actually don’t like scary things like scary movies, frightmares, spook alleys, haunted houses, ghosts, goblins, and zombies – you get the picture. I do have some wonderful memories of Halloween though.
Growing up on a Dairy farm meant that we had to get the cows milked and the chores done before we could go trick or treating. Our nearest neighbors lived a mile away in each direction and my grandparents on my mother’s side lived 4 miles away, so obviously we did not walk to go trick or treating.
My mother, or one of my older siblings drove us to go trick-or-treating. We went about 15 miles to the South and 4 miles North (to my grandparents) and even with all of that distance, we only went to about 25 houses.
There was a very special older lady that made fabulous popcorn balls for us every Halloween for a treat. We really didn’t see her much except at Halloween. Her and her husband never had any children, and I think that this was a special time for her to have the trick-or-treaters come. That is one house that we never missed! This recipe brought back some treasured memories of some great Halloween times.
