Recipe: Jello Flavored Candy Popcorn! Yum!



Super Gooey Jello Candy Popcorn 

Hi Y'all! I am super excited to share one of our favorite snack recipes with you!
It is so yummy. Super easy and doesn't take a whole lot of time.


My sister had a birthday party for my niece this past weekend. The theme was all things junk food! Pretzels, pizza, ice cream, cake, and...popcorn! Well, and unicorns of course!
She calls at the last minute and asks us to make a ton of microwave popcorn. 
We popped 6 bags...
We came home with 3... as in 3 huge ice cream tubs full(we recycle) of popped popcorn!
I just couldn't let it sit and go stale and be wasted!
So, we decided to go for our old tried and true recipe. We whipped up our yummy Jello Flavored Candy Popcorn. 
We used Raspberry jello for this one! See in the picture that wonderful shiny pink? It tastes as good as it looks!
Here is my recipe


Ingredients:
  • 2 bags of popped popcorn
  • 1 1/2 cups light Karo/corn Syrup
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 package of Jello(any flavor)
Directions:
  • Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
  • Spray the paper with any cooking spray
  • Pour out your popcorn onto sheet and set aside
  • On medium heat mix corn syrup and sugar in a sauce pan
  • bring to a boil, stir until all sugar is melted 
  • add entire pack of jello powder
  • allow to boil and mix well until all jello is dissolved
  • remove from heat
  • carefully drizzle or pour mixture over popcorn slowly and as evenly as possible(Extreme Caution! It is boiling sugar!)
  • using a spoon or spatula toss and coat all popcorn
  • Allow to cool or refrigerate a few minutes(I like it a tad still warm)



That's it! It is so easy and only takes about 10 minutes!
Remember you can try any flavor and the colors are amazing!
(corn syrup makes everything shiny!)
Enjoy your very own fun treat!
