JoSele's Story

When the kids were little I had to send snacks for snack day at school when it came our time...I used to popcorn and have my old maid hunters do their job...then I would sprinkle Jello over the popcorn, but I got to thinking about adding it to my marshmallow popcorn balls...They are pretty good I must say....this has a flavor all its own

Ingredients

1
popcorn, popped (bag - med/lrg)
2 stick
butter
2 pkg
marshmallows
1 pkg
jello any flavor (small package)
shortening, butter flavor
YOU CAN USE PREPOPPED OR POP YOUR OWN
POPCORN ABOVE REPRESENT PREPOPPED

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place a Medium to large bag of popcorn (pre-popped) into a large pot. If you do not have a pot you may wash your sink good and dry it good to use it.
2
In a dutch oven, put butter and marshmallows and food color into pan. Turn heat to medium and stir constantly till marshmallows are all melter starting to bubble, sprinkle dry Jello in gradually mixing thoroughly . Pour over popcorn, stir into popcorn, mix good.
3
Grease your hands with the shortening real well and start making your popcorn balls by pressing in good and hard till firm about the size of a softball.
4
After you have finished you may put each one into a zip lock sandwich bag. Have fun and Enjoy......

My daughter and I have made this for years. It is quite popular, I follow the same directions pretty much except we use butter on our hands when we form them into popcorn balls b/c I don't particularly care for the taste of the butter flavored shortening. Everyone loves it.
