This is such a great idea for parties. There's so many flavors of JELLO that you'll always have a color to match your theme. In this picture we used watermelon, pineapple, grape and lime. Sooo delicious and your friends will keep coming back for another handful.
8 cups popped popcorn
1/4 cup butter
3 T. light corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1- 3.5oz box jello, any flavor (not the sugar free kind)
Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a jelly roll pan with foil or parchment. If using foil, spray lightly with non-stick spray and set aside. Pop popcorn into an extra large mixing bowl.
Add butter and syrup to a sauce pan on medium heat. Stir until butter is melted. Add sugar and Jello and stir to combine.
Increase heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat so it just simmers and cook for about 5 minutes.
After the sugar mixture has simmered, immediately pour over popcorn in bowl. Mix right away and keep stirring so everything gets well coated. *It is really hot so be careful! Spread mixture onto prepared pan and spread out evenly.
Place in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove pan from the oven and as it cools, break into pieces and enjoy!
*You can definitely eat this without baking in the oven...it will just be soft and gooey. Definitely bake it if you’re going to pack it up for sharing, or serve it as party food so it will be light and crunchy.
