Really Gross Over-Sweet Popcorn Balls

My mother had the bright idea of making a popcorn ball turkey one year using this recipe. Weird.

  1. Bring to boil and boil for a minute:
    1 cup corn syrup
    1/2 cup sugar
  2. Add one small package of Jello (or jelly, you know the wobbly stuff)
  3. Pour over a heaping cooking sheet full of popcorn, mold into balls. Buttering your hands before molding makes it easier to hold the hot ingredients.
