Jack-O-Lantern Popcorn Balls
My Mother-in-law found this great article on how to make festive popcorn balls, so the kids and I decided to try it. It was quick and easy, here is the recipie.
3 quarts popped popcorn
4 T butter
3 cups miniature marshmallows
3 T orange gelatin dessert mix
Candy corn, jelly beans, or other small candy to decorate
Spray large mixing bowl with cooking spray and place popcorn inside. In medium saucepan melt butter, add in marshmallows and gelatin powder until soft and smooth. Pour over popcorn and mix until coated. My daughter really enjoyed it, while my son got bored after awhile. They weren’t the best tasting (in my opinion) but they sure looked cute!
Press handfuls into firm balls. Place in cupcake papers and decorate with candy. Serve or wrap in plastic wrap immediately. Makes 16 balls.
