This gooey treat is one that trick-or-treaters are sure to love. They're fun for everyone, but be sure to have lots of soap and water ready for washing those sticky hands!

What You'll Need:
  • 16 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 package (15 ounces) candy corn
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 package (4-serving size) orange-flavored gelatin
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
What To Do:
  1. Coat a large bowl with cooking spray. Add the popcorn and candy corn; mix well and set aside.
