    Delicious! This quick and easy popcorn reminded me of the jello popcorn balls my mom used to make when I was a kid. I used large marshmallows (cut into 1/4's) because I didn't have miniature marshmallows. Also, this made plenty of syrup so I used 12 cups popped popcorn. My family really enjoyed this. I'll be making this in other flavors as well. Thank you for sharing. *Made for Think Pink tag game*

    Oh, this is goooood! Mine looks a little different, because I think I didn't get the marshmallows quite warm enough. But that sure didn't prevent me from eating it! Thnx for sharing your recipe mariposa13. Made for THINK PINK Oct 2009.

    This was very quick and easy to make, however my family really didn't like it. I thought it was pretty good though. I don't know if I'll make it again since they didn't care for it. However I did enjoy making it. Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.

    This was quick and easy and came out great. I used wild strawberry jello and it may have been a bit more sour than I was expecting... maybe a different flavor next time or increase the amount of marshmallow. It may also be my fault since I used marshmallow fluff instead of the mini's. The girls loved the sight of it! Thanks for a great recipe.

    The kids enjoyed this simple treat as an after school snack. The popcorn stays sticky/chewy and can also be formed into popcorn balls. Lots of flavor and color from the jello powder. Thanks, mariposa, for posting!
