    My dad's aunt would make these for Christmas every year for him and mail them....now it's my job! If you over cook they will be hard as a rock so be careful.

      Yummy popcorn balls that are quick, easy, and fun to make! I must confess that I've been making these since age twelve. And they can be made from any flavor of jello that appeals to you. A favorite is lime! Note: My recipe also calls for a full cup of sugar.

      I have never had these before and wasn't that impressed with the finished product but I can see them really fun for kids to put together. It was really easy to do and the clean up wasn't bad at all. I was expecting the jello syrup to be hard to get off but it wasn't at all.
