Easy party food: Popcorn balls on a stick

When it comes to easy party food, these 2-ingredient sugared popcorn balls on a stick by Parents Magazine pretty much take the cake. They are so cute and so simple!

(Bonus points for the cute rickrack covered lollipop sticks, and for the pom pom trim on the serving plate – I love those decorating ideas, and you could do them in any color.)

This recipe is from Parents Magazine.

10 cups fresh popcorn
1 1/2 cups sugar
Lollipop sticks

1. Melt sugar, without stirring, in a saucepan over medium heat for about 5 minutes, watching constantly to make sure it doesn’t burn.

2. In a large bowl, pour melted sugar over top of popcorn. Mix popcorn with a spoon and cover thoroughly. Reserve some of the melted sugar for later.

3. While still warm, roll the popcorn into balls and place on wax paper. It’s a little hot, so use plastic gloves if needed.

4. Dip lollipop sticks in the leftover melted sugar and push into the balls.
