LeOra's Jello Popcorn Balls

Submitted by: LANICHRISTENSEN

Introduction

This was the recipe made today with girls for Activity Days. This is Leora's recipe. The popcorn balls are the size of a cantalope. I don't recommend this as a healthy treat, but I ate half of one today with my daughter, so I had to figure out how to record it. They are tasty!

  • Replacing 1 cup of sugar with .5 cup of Splenda blend would save over 400 calories in the whole recipe (or 40+ calories/ball) and using sugar-free jello would save over 350 calories total and 35+ per ball, putting each ball at just over 200 calories each! Yum! - 11/23/09

  • We made this in Girl Scouts! Brings back memories. Now I make them with my grandkids. They are very sweet and not part of an everyday diet. - 7/1/09
