Colored Popcorn Balls (A "Mom Minutes" Recipe)
12 cups popped popcorn
1.5 oz flavored gelatin (any color Jello powder)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
Put gelatin, sugar and syrup into a pot. Heat & stir to dissolve. Bring to a rolling boil. Pour over popcorn in a large bowl (you can lightly salt popcorn first if you like). Stir until all popcorn is coated. Form into balls with lightly buttered hands (I spray with Pam!). Makes about a dozen popcorn balls.
Use whatever color suits the occasion. For Halloween use orange Jello. You can put `faces' on your popcorn balls with candy (candy corn works great!). For Christmas make a bowl full of red & green balls. For Easter use pastel colors. The possibilities are endless!!
The tip about spraying your hands with Pam is genius!!! I'm going to use that one. Tell my family that I said hi!!ReplyDelete
