Halloween Mini Popcorn Balls

Looking for something fun and tasty to feed the ghosts and goblins at your Halloween party? Why not try these tasty popcorn balls. They even have fruit in them — no need to tell them that, though.

For carry out, stuff some seasoned popcorn into a clear, non-latex plastic glove and place candies at the end of the fingertips to make them even more lifelike. Tie a decorative ribbon or raffia at the wrist to keep it all in.
