box orange flavored Jello
Tootsie Roll mini candies
Green candies- You can shape Starbursts
green apple Tootsie Rolls, or Laffy Taffys. In the picture above we used green air heads. This is a "use whatever you can find" situation.
In microwavable bowl, melt 1/2 c butter.
Stir in jello and corn syrup.
Microwave again until it reaches a full boil (try 1 min. then more if needed). Stir.
Mix in baking soda. Stir for 2-3 minutes.
Mix in popcorn. (I never actually measure, I just add until its all covered evenly.)
Microwave the whole thing for 30 seconds more. (You can do more if you prefer it crispy instead of gooey.)
Then have the kids form them into balls. (We use plastic bags with a little non-stick spray on them as gloves for the kids.)
Add tootsie roll minis for the stems and shape your green candy for the leaf. Be sure to press the stem in while the popcorn ball is still warm and pliable.
