I’m always trying out new recipes and thought I would try out a fun one this past weekend for game day. My kids and neighbors loved this so I’m adding it to my recipe book. It was pretty easy to do and loved the idea of sweet and salty. I live in North Carolina so I thought I would go for some colors that everyone loves around here. 🙂 I just put them in paper bags and then people could just grab them when they needed a snack. The kids claimed most of them before the game even started!
- 1-2 bags popped popcorn
- 1 3 oz box of gelatin (Pick the color you want to use)
- 1 stick butter
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add in sugar, gelatin, syrup, and water. Once the sugar is dissolved and everything smooth, pour it over your popcorn and stir thoroughly. It will be sticky!
Once you have it mixed well, you’ll need to bake it. I sprayed my baking pan with olive oil spray. Turn the oven to 275F and bake popcorn for 20 minutes. I stopped halfway through and stirred. Once the popcorn is out it may stick together, so you’ll just need to break it apart.
It’s very sticky!! My hands and countertops were both blue!
I cleaned up using Viva® Vantage® paper towels. They are great for scrubbing. I wet the paper towel and cleaned my hands. I also scrubbed my counters and it didn’t rip or tear up.
I bought Viva® Vantage® Big Roll at Walmart and they are really easy to find. Also, there is a bonus 8 Box Tops on the back of the package. WooHoo! Your school will love you when you turn those in.
Be sure to check out Viva® Vantage® and get a great coupon before you head over to Walmart.
