Just what I remember as a child!!!! So yummy!! I used wild strawberry jello. It was so tangy and sweet. My hubby and kids ate these fast. (okay, me too!) We will for sure be making these again. We didn't add the nuts.
*moisten your hands with water to make the balls. They won't stick to you that way*
These were wonderfully easy to make, and the kids loved the colors. However, we found them far too sweet.
Easy, fun, and delicious! My family loved them! We also left out the nuts due to an allergy.
used 2 packages of orville redenbacher microwave kettle corn. buttered hands and formed into balls. yum!! update: used sugar-free jello and there was no difference in taste - just made me feel better!
Good stuff. I used berry blue flavor. It was nice and tangy but not a best jello flavor to begin with lol. I used it cause i loved the thought of making blue popcorn. For sure, the other flavors would be awsome. This is a sticky mess when making it, So oil up your hands or use water. I also used 2 bags of 94% fat free buttered flavor popcorn for the microwave. I liked the nice buttery flavor mixed with all the sugar goodness.
I hadn't made popcorn balls before, but they're my daughter's favorite, so I figured I'd better. These were quick and easy, and the kids love them. I left out the peanuts, too, because I'm not big on jell-o and nuts together. ;)
This recipe was very easy to make and came out excellent. My only suggestion is to spray some Pam/oil on your hands to form the balls or you will have a very sticky frustrating mess.
i had never heard of jello- popcon balls b im so surprised by the results. i used strawberry jello and 1 1/2 cup coconut instead of peanuts only because some how my peanuts got lost from store to house????? but they turned out awsome! thanks
