Colorful Popcorn Balls

Rated as 3.96 out of 5 Stars

"'These easy-to-make, fruit-flavored snacks are a big hit with our four young sons,' relates Mary Kay Morris from Cokato, Minnesota. For extra fun, chose gelatin flavors that match your child's school colors. They're sure to become best-sellers, so it's fortunate this recipe can be doubled."
