Jello Popcorn Balls

I was flipping through my old recipe box and found this jello popcorn recipe.  My sister-in-law gave this to me years ago.  I still think it's yummy!

Jello Popcorn Balls
  • 3 quarts popped corn
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup jello (1 small box any flavor)
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Combine in saucepan, sugar, butter, & corn syrup. Boil over medium heat for 2 minutes or until it's not so grainy.  While stirring add jello, soda, and vanilla.  Blend well. (It's kinda foamy) Have popcorn in a large bowl and pour the mixture over it.   Stir together and form balls.

These are really yummy. I had forgotten about them. I will have to break out the jello. I am sure this is not on the Enlightened Homemaker list of approved foods! Oh, what the heck! Thanks for reminging me of this.
