#EdenCooks - Popcorn Balls and Halloween Treats - Mon. Oct 15, 8pm EST

Antipova Antipova

Quick, easy, and as seasonal as can be---popcorn balls are great to throw together before trick or treaters come to your house---and they're way cheaper than commercial candy. In my hometown, there was a woman who would make these every year, and her house was the most popular stop in town!

Plenty of other quick, easy, and affordable treats will be showcased, so be sure to come on by the meeting to learn how to have some fun in the kitchen!



Welcome to the September Meeting of Eden Cooks! Eden Cooks is a cooking club for any interested members of the Eden community. We will meet on the forum to discuss everything from tips and pointers for less well-equipped kitchens, explanations of cooking terms, and important techniques. There will be a featured recipe each meeting, with pictures taken as I prepare it for you. I will cover some ingredient substitutions to make each recipe more friendly to people with dietary restrictions.


During the meeting, five $10 gift cards to EF will be awarded to the winners of a trivia contest from information that I will provide during the meeting, and to those who share their quick and easy treats.

The meeting will take place on the EdenFantasys forum in this very thread at 8 pm EST on Monday, October 15th. I'm looking forward to sharing this sweet treat with you, so be sure to make it to the meeting!

I can't promise I'll make it, because I apparently suck at making meetings now, but I have the thread marked to at least read back through!

I hope you can come, Sam!

Time to change that, Sneakers and Pearls!

And Nosrslylol, the trick there is to sort the popcorn, and not include any with the kernel still intact. It's the same as eating regular popcorn. I'm glad you mentioned that, because there are some pretty good ways to sort your popcorn without having to look at each individual one.

I love popcorn balls! However, I doubt I'd ever make them to pass out. Everyone in my neighborhood is sooooo distant and suspicious they would swear I was trying to kill their kids. Like secretly I'm trying to harvest their organs!

That might be a little difficult, but we should try that one night. What do you think Miss Antipova?
