Homemaking Tip – $tore Leaves

That bag of leaves from the $tore has come in awfully handy this fall.  First I used them as caramel apple toppers

and then as a pumpkin-y affect, along with a little green ribbon, for a popcorn ball.

Jello Popcorn Balls
1 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 3 oz package jello

Bring syrup and sugar to a boil.  Boil 1 minute.  Remove from heat and stir in gelatin.  Add 1/4 cup butter or margarine.  Stir to melt and then pour over 5 quarts of popped popcorn.   From into balls and wrap in waxed paper.  Makes approximately 20 balls.

My friend Donna always says, "It's all in the packaging" and those leaves have certainly been a little bright spot of help.
