Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size It Up
Kids will enjoy making and eating a serving, one popcorn ball each, of these colorful treats.
Helpful Hint
For ease in handling, grease hands lightly before shaping popcorn mixture into balls.
Storage Know-How
Unpopped popcorn can be stored in an airtight container for about 1 year. It is best stored in the refrigerator or freezer because the kernels will retain more of their natural moisture and pop up larger and fluffier. 1/2 cup unpopped kernels = about 4 cups popped popcorn. Store leftover unbuttered popcorn in an airtight sealable plastic bag at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. Buttered popcorn should be refrigerated.
