I signed up late to be a part of VEGANMOFO. There are so many vegan bloggers involved it's exciting!
Today I was talking with some co-workers and started to think back about my trick-or-treating days. A woman up the street from us would always offer popcorn balls and they were my favorite. It is too bad we no loner live in a society where such offerings would be accepted, or kids would be eating vegan cookies around my neighborhood on Halloween.
Halloween was almost my favorite holiday growing up. It was definitely the holiday I was most involved in. My mom is a very creative person and made me and my sisters our costumes when we were young. Then I reached an age I could make my own and my favorite material to use was cardboard. I was a haunted house, a mailbox, a carousel (which was impossible to walk in) and when I was a flower pot with flowers in it, I won first prize in a costume contest for the "Most Creative". Luckily they also offered a "Most Imaginative" category which my little sister entered and won as a monster vacuum cleaner, a creation my mom put together.
All the Halloween talk made me want popcorn balls. Although I plan to make some from scratch before Halloween and posting about it, I couldn't wait that long. I am about to leave to go to a friends for dinner and I volunteered to bring dessert. Then I realized I didn't have any ingredient or much time. But I did have some of the Suzanne's Ricemellow Creme. And that started my fast track to popcorn balls, except the gooey popcorn was pressed into a casserole dish.
Popcorn Gooey Delight
1 container Rice mellow
1 Tb Vanilla
2 Tb Agave nectar
6 oz. bag Popcorn (or about 15 cups)
1 Tb. Caramel Syrup (optional)
I heated up the rice mellow very briefly and added the vanilla, agave nectar and caramel syrup if you have it. Add the popcorn and stir it in unto all the yummy goo has been properly distributed. Spread into a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish. Enjoy!
