    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    The third grade teacher at my school would make these for her students. The many colors of jello make them appropriate for any holiday. Orange jello is great for Halloween; lime and cherry for Christmas time, etc. These are very yummy and never get hard. You will recognize the similarity to Rice Krispie Candy. I don't see why this recipe wouldn't work just as well with cereal as with popcorn, although I've never done it myself.

    1. 1
      Melt butter (margarine may also be used) and marshmallows over low heat. Add jello and stir well to combine.
    2. 2
      Put popcorn in a large bowl and pour this mixture over, mixing well to be sure to coat all popcorn. When cool enough to handle, butter your hands and form into balls.
    3. 3
      Wrap balls in plastic wrap to show off the color.

      I made these for a halloween party and used lime & orange jello. They are so delicous! I did add a few drops of green food coloring to my green batch so it wasn't so pastel.

      Made these for Easter with beautiful pastel colors. People loved them and wanted to try one of each flavor! I made them small and wrapped them each in saran wrap and piled them in an easter basket. They were great for the kids. Big hit!

      This recipe is great. My partner and I both took these to our jobs and everyone loved them. We even have people asking for the recipe. I'm going to try them with Lime and Lemon Jello to see how they turn out.
