Rainbow Popcorn

In yesterday's post, I showcased a Mad Libs Pajama Party for my daughter's 8th birthday!  In addition to a lot of nonsense and laughter, there was a lot of color - like a rainbow of colors.  One of the colorful details was the Rainbow Popcorn - a really tasty snack made with Jell-O.  My daughter and I made 5 flavors of popcorn - raspberry, orange, lime, blueberry and grape.  Raspberry and orange tasted the best - just ask my sister, who asked me to blog the recipe.  Here you go, Michele!


8 cups popped popcorn
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar or granulated sugar
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Any Flavor Gelatin

PREHEAT oven to 300°F. Line 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil or wax paper. Toss popcorn and peanuts in large bowl; set aside.

PLACE butter and syrup in small saucepan; cook on low heat until butter is melted. Add sugar and gelatin; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Bring to boil on medium heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes. Pour immediately over popcorn mixture; toss to coat well. Spread into prepared pan, using 2 forks to spread evenly.

BAKE 10 minutes. Cool. Remove from pan. Break into small pieces.

Enjoy!  This snack is easy and fast to make and you'll really enjoy the outcome!
