Patty's Day Popcorn Balls

My St. Patrick's Day bribe for my students. Do you think it will work?

I used some cute printable tags from Elizabeth at To Be Charmed. Thank you for sharing. My picture doesn't show off how cute they really are so check them out on her blog.
Here's the easy recipe.

2c. light corn syrup
1c. sugar
1 box (6oz.) lime jello (or the color appropriate for the season)
22 cups air-popped popcorn
1/4 cup butter or margarine

Mix first 3 ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until all the sugar is dissolved - don't overcook. Pour over popped corn and stir very well. Rub hands with butter then make into balls and let cool on waxed paper. You will need to use butter repeatedly so the gooey balls don't keep sticking to your hands. Good luck and let me know how yours turn out.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Linking to some of THESE parties.
