I haven’t made popcorn balls in years. When I was given the opportunity to try out a cool new popcorn baller from Good Cook, I immediately said yes as I knew my kids would enjoy helping me. Also, I have learned that I can incorporate lessons on fractions and measurements when we cook together.

These were so easy to make. I started with homemade microwave popcorn, then found an easy 4 ingredient recipe for the yummy sweet “sticky” part of the recipe.

As you can see my kiddos had fun helping me discard all the kernels. My daughter was just kidding around, I think it surprised my son a bit. They crack me up, so much fun!


So enjoyed this amazing kit from Good Cook. I had never seen a popcorn baller before, it sure made forming popcorn balls easy and mess free!
