Popcorn Ball Recipes for Polly


















Popcorn Ball Recipes for Polly
Here are popcorn ball recipes for Polly in Denver. I have found that you can use almost any mini candy in a recipes, such as gumdrops, jellybeans, red hots. Dried fruit, chocolate covered raisins, chocolate covered nuts, coconut and colored miniature marshmallows are also great option. Making mini balls instead of full size ones is a great idea for the holidays, when there are so many treats to try.
