Deliciously Fun, Flavored Popcorn

Well...I can't make this anymore!!  I loved it so much, that I ate most all of it!  It's so easy to make and the flavors are many!

Here is all you need to make Jello Popcorn:

8 cups popped popcorn
1/4 cup butter
3 tablespoons corn syrup or honey
1/2 cup sugar
1 3oz box jello, any flavor (don't use sugar-free)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Line a jelly roll pan with foil and spray lightly with a non-stick spray and set aside.  Place popcorn in a very large mixing bowl.

Place the butter and corn syrup in a sauce pan on medium heat, stirring until the butter is melted.

Add the sugar....

...and jello and stir to combine.

Increase heat and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat so it just simmers.  Continue simmering for 5 minutes.  The mixture will start out thick and will stay somewhat thick although will become a little more liquid.  

After the sugar mixture cimmers for 5 minutes, immediately pour over the popcorn, being careful to not touch the hot syrup!!  It's very hot!  Mix right away, stirring so that all the popcorn gets well coated.

Spread out the popcorn evenly onto the prepared pan.  Put it in the oven for about 10 minutes.  Some jello flavors have more mix in them then other, so if one flavor is more liquid, it may need another minute or two in the oven.  Remove the pan and let cool.  Break the mixture into pieces and store in an airtight container.  

You could also leave them soft and gooey and you could make them into balls, but if you are going to pack them up for giving it's better if it's been baked to give it that crunch!

Here are lime, raspberry, orange and lemon flavors.  I want to try some more flavors, but I know that I would eat them all!!!

Thanks for posting these recipes too. I was planning on making a couple different kinds of flavored popcorn for Newell for Christmas. He loves popcorn and we are making our gifts to each other this year. I drew his name. It is fun helping my kids get creative about making things for someone in our family.
