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!!
