Popcorn Jack-o-Lanterns

November 7, 2008

This looked like another fun one from here.

3 quarts popped popcorn
1/4 c. butter, cubed
1 10 oz. package miniature marshmallows
1 3 oz. pkg. orange jello
12 green Dots candies
1-2 Tbs. marshmallow creme
green fruit by the foot fruit roll

Place popcorn in a large bowl. In a large microwave safte bowl, heat butter and marshmallows on high for 1-2 minutes or until melted; stir in gelatin powder until dissolved. Pour over popcorn and toss to coat. With lightly buttered hands, quickly shape mixture into 12 3-in. balls, flattening one side slightly. For each stem, insert a green Dots candy at the top of “pumpkin”, attaching with marshmallow creme. Decorate jack-o-lantern faces as desired with fruit roll and licorice, attaching with marshmallow creme if necessary. (Taste of Home Oct. 06)
