Jello Flavored Popcorn

One of my favorite snacks as a child was Jello flavored popcorn. My mom would make different flavors and it didn't last long in our house with 4 kids! This would make a great Super Bowl Party snack. Just choose the colors of your favorite team and find a flavor of Jello that matches!

Jello Flavored Popcorn

(I'd triple or quadruple this recipe for a party)

8-12 cups air popped popcorn

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 small box of flavored gelatin
3 tablespoons of corn syrup

In a small pot melt butter, add sugar, gelatin and corn syrup. Stir constantly until sugars are dissolved. In a large bowl, add 12 cups of air popped popcorn making sure there are no kernels. Pour jello mixture over the top of the popcorn and stir until coated evenly. Pour out popcorn onto a parchment or aluminum lined baking sheet. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 10 minutes. Cool completely. Enjoy!
