For those looking to make some treats this Halloween, consider this simple pumpkin recipe. The recipe takes minutes to make and will be a huge hit at this year’s Halloween bash.

For this recipe, you will need butter, Jello powder, corn syrup, popcorn, baking soda and a microwave. Microwave half a cup of butter and stir in three ounces of Jello (any color is fine), alongside 1/4 cup of corn syrup. Microwave this mixture again until it becomes quite thick. Mix in 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda to thicken once more, then mix in approximately 12 cups of (popped) pop corn.

You can then mix the two to spread the mixture evenly; consider doing this part with the kids. Simply form these into balls and feel free to add taffy and candies to the exterior to give it a ‘pumpkin’-esque vibe.
