Jello Flavored Popcorn
To make the popcorn you need:
10 cups popped popcorn
1 3oz package fruit flavored jello mix
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp corn syrup
3 tbsp water
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease a 1/4 sheet pan or 2 8X12 inch baking dishes. Generously butter a heavy 2 quart saucepan.
Spread the popcorn out evenly on the greased baking dish.
In the prepared suacepan, combine the butter, sugar, corn syrup, water, and jello mix. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil and boil for 4 minutes.
Pour mixture over the popcorn and stir until coated. Place popcorn in oven and bake 5 minutes; stir then bake 5 minutes more. You will need to watch this step carefully as oven temps vary. When this burns, it turns a nasty brown/black shade and does not look very appetizing!!
Once done, pour popcorn out onto large piece of foil to cool, then break up into clusters, and serve.
