Easy Popcorn Balls

This was Grandma Lorimer's recipe. It's easy and delicious and the kids love it. If you're real ambitious you can add peanuts, M&M's, or whatever else you want. If I'm feeling lazy, instead of making balls, I'll press the popcorn into a pan or a ring or something!

6 quarts of popped corn (I pop 1/2 cup corn and that works out great!) (And don't forget to sift through it and get rid of the old maids)
1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 3oz. pkg. of jell-o, any flavor

Combine sugar, syrup, and jell-o in a saucepan. Bring just to a boil. Pour over popped corn. Shape into balls with buttered hands.
