For the Green Apple Popcorn (body):
Microwave popcorn, pour into a large bowl. Preheat oven to 300°. Line a jelly roll pan with foil, spray with non stick cooking spray and set aside. Place butter and syrup in a sauce pan on medium heat. Stir until butter is melted. Add Dixie Crystals granulated sugar and Jello and stir to combine. NOTE: If you opt to add more food coloring this is the time to do so. Increase the heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat so it just simmers. Continue simmering for 5 minutes. After the sugar mixture simmers for 5 minutes, immediately pour over popcorn in bowl. Mix right away and keep stirring so all the popcorn gets well coated. Spread popcorn mixture onto prepared pan and spread out evenly. Bake for 10 minutes. As soon as you can touch the candy break it into pieces, making sure to break apart the big chunks that are thick with candy.
For the Finger Pretzels:
In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt Lime Green Wilton Candy Melts on high 1 minute, stir, continue on 70% power 30 seconds, stir until melted and creamy. Dip pretzels in melted candy making sure to cover the pretzels, transfer to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper to harden. The perfect tool for dipping pretzels or cookies is the Three Prong Fork from Wilton. You can also use a fork. Dip the flat side of the candy coated sunflower seed into the melted green candy and place at one end of the candy coated pretzel. Place the cookie sheet of pretzels in the refrigerator to harden (about 15 minutes). When candy has hardened brush some coco over the top to give the pretzel a dirty look.
For the Eyeballs:
In a small microwave safe bowl melt white candy melts. Pour melted candy into a squeeze bottle. Also melt the black candy and pour into another squeeze bottle. Add a dollop of white on a round piece of chocolate and black in the center of the white. To make the drying process easier, pour rice into a baking pan, press eyes into the rice. Place the baking pan into the refrigerator to harden (about 15 minutes).
For the Remaining Body Parts:
Add honey roasted peanuts (warts) and the black licorice strings (hair) to the mix. Add all the fun ingredients to a large bowl!
