Jello Popcorn Balls Aunt Lynn Petersen

12/ pkg. 3 oz. Jello - any flavor 1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup sugar

cup butter (use only butter) sorry weight-watchers

6 quarts popped popcorn - making sure that all seeds are removed (I use air popper).

 

Place popcorn in a large dishpan. Mix jello, syrup, sugar and butter. Put over medium heat and bring to a boil. Boil till completely dissolved. Pour mixture over popped popcorn, mixing thoroughly to coat all the popcorn. Butter hands and shape into balls quickly before mixture hardens. I altered this recipe by adding the butter to make it more crunchy. If not added, it tends to be sticky to the teeth. Having fun making different flavors!
