Jello Popcorn

I am surprised how many people I have come across lately who have never tasted--never even heard of--jello popcorn. It is a fun cooking idea for a party snack or to make into balls and give away to friends for Christmas or Valentine's Day or St. Patrick's Day or whenever. Here is the recipe:

Jello Popcorn

  • 1 package jello (whatever flavor you like--or whatever color matches the holiday you are celebrating)
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 bags microwave popcorn (or about 5 to 6 quarts popped popcorn if you don't do microwave popcorn)

In a medium sauce pan, combine the sugar, jello and corn syrup. Cook on medium heat, stirring continuously until sugar is dissolved. Pour immediately over popped popcorn and stir until well coated. Store in a covered container if you just want eat it around the house or form into balls while syrup is still hot and pliable, then wrap in plastic wrap or wax paper. Now they are ready to give away.
