  • 1/2 c butter

  • 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 as gloves)
  • Add your pretzel piece for the stem
