I made a batch of these and none of my children liked them. I think it was the Jello flavoring. Maybe they would be better without the Jello.

delicious! I used a regular bag of microwavable popcorn, 1 stick of butter, 4 cup of mini marshes, but I did not use gelatin. It was still delicious, I was not able to do the balls, I just ate it out the bowl, absolutely delicious, just as I remembered as a child. Thanks, easy and simple.

Very tasty; an excellent treat for kids. I used cherry gelatin and let it cook for just a minute to melt crystals. Quick and easy to make.
