“I heard this recipe on the PBS kids show Cyber Chase that my kids were watching one day. It sounded easy to make, so I thought I would try them and they were so simple. I added the jello to add to color for Christmas gifts and the jello added a fun, almost candy like texture to the popcorn balls! It will be very sticky and messy, but also alot of fun to make!”
