"These easy-to-make, fruit-flavored snacks are a big hit with our four young sons," relates Mary Kay Morris from Cokato, Minnesota. For extra fun, choose gelatin flavors that match your child's school colors. They're sure to become best-sellers, so it's fortunate this recipe can be doubled.

"It is a rare instance when I give a poor rating for a TOH recipe. But this is one. These popcorn balls lack imagination. They are simply marshmellow and gelatin flavor. You'd be better off using the old fashioned recipe you cook on the stovetop."
