PLACE popcorn in large greased bowl. Combine corn syrup and sugar in medium saucepan. Bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Pour over popcorn; toss to coat well. Cool 5 minutes.

Popcorn Balls: Prepare popcorn mixture as directed; shape into 2-inch balls. Makes about 2 dozen popcorn balls.
NOTE: For ease in handling, grease hands slightly before shaping popcorn mixture into desired shapes.
