Popcorn Pumpkin Balls

Sometimes you find a recipe that’s just too adorable to pass up!  Having been kids once, we remember that not all fun things to eat are completely and totally nutritious — but if they are CUTE, that makes up for it.  And these little popcorn balls that are masquerading as pumpkins are IT!

What’s in them:
½ cup butter
3 oz. box of orange jello
¼ cup of corn syrup
¼ tsp. baking soda
12 cups of plain popcorn

Here’s how you make them:
In microwavable bowl, melt 1/2 cup butter. Stir in a box of orange jello and 1/4 cup of corn syrup. Microwave again until it reaches a full boil (try 1 min. then more if needed). Stir.
Mix in 1/4 tsp. baking soda. Stir for 2-3 minutes. Mix in roughly 12 cups popcorn.
Microwave the whole thing for 30 seconds more. You can do more if you prefer it crispy instead of gooey.
Form into balls. Wear plastic bags with a little non-stick spray on them as gloves.
Use Tootsie Roll minis for the stem. For a green leaf, you can shape Starbursts into a leaf shape. Be sure to press the stem in while the popcorn ball is still warm and pliable.
