Personal Notes:
This is my grandmother, Mary Marshall's, recipe. She would serve these every Christmas when I was growing up. We would devour them as an appetizer before dinner as well as an after meal snack.

NOTE: Don't be alarmed if you feel the outer layers of your skin being singed as you are forming the popcorn balls. This is normal and more importantly, it is all part of the experience.
