Let's Make It
Heat oven to 300°F.
Cover rimmed baking sheet with foil; spray with cooking spray. Place popcorn in large bowl.
Cook butter and corn syrup in small saucepan on low heat until butter is melted, stirring occasionally. Add sugar, cream and dry gelatin mix; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or gelatin is completely dissolved. Bring to boil on medium heat, stirring constantly; simmer on low heat 5 min., stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Add food coloring; mix well. Pour immediately over popcorn; toss to evenly coat popcorn with glaze. Spread onto prepared baking sheet, using 2 forks to evenly spread popcorn onto bottom of prepared baking sheet.
Bake 20 min.; cool completely.
Meanwhile, place sprinkles in small bowl. Melt chocolate as directed on package. Dip tops of ice cream cones, 1 at a time, into chocolate, then into sprinkles, gently tapping cone after dipping in chocolate to remove any excess chocolate. Place in single layer in parchment-lined pan. Refrigerate until chocolate coating is firm. Reserve remaining melted chocolate for later use.
Pour reserved melted chocolate into small resealable plastic bag; cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag. Use to secure candy eyes to cones as shown in photo. Draw the mouths with remaining chocolate. Let stand 15 min. or until chocolate is firm.
Break glazed popcorn into small pieces; place in prepared cones. Serve any remaining glazed popcorn on the side.
Prepare using your favorite flavor of JELL-O Gelatin.
How to Reheat the Melted Chocolate
If the remaining melted chocolate is too thick for drizzling, pour chocolate into microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 15 sec.; cool 10 min. or until thinned to desired consistency. Pour into resealable plastic bag, then cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag and use as directed.
