Miniature peanut butter popcorn balls. A recipe for bite sized peanut butter popcorn balls. So I really love popcorn balls. I like the ones that are bright colors, and the ones that look really gross because they are dark brown but they taste like magic. So in order for you to fully appreciate my love of popcorn balls here are some haikus written by a genius:

some thought it was flat

but Columbus knew the truth

it’s just a big ball

pink balls and red balls

orange balls green balls yellow balls

also popcorn balls

Geometry, yeah!

so many shapes and sizes

but balls are the best

sticky, crunchy, sweet

goopy, salty – in my mouth

god i love these balls

YAY! The end.
