Preheat oven to 250 degrees
Spray a medium size saucepan, wooden spoon. large mixing bowl and a baking sheet really well with Pam. (I actually lined my baking sheet with parchment paper before spraying with Pam to make it easier to clean up)
I popped two bags of popcorn in the microwave and placed it in the large bowl. (Try to get rid of the unpopped kernels)
In the medium size saucepan, mix all the following well, and over medium-high heat bring to a boil. Continue to let it boil while stirring it, for about 3 or 4 minutes, till it is nice and thick.
1/2 cup margerine
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
3 tablespoons water
Jello mix (3oz box)
Pour the Jello mixture onto the popcorn and stir it until the all the popcorn is well coated. Pour the popcorn onto the Pam coated baking sheet. Bake it for 20 mins, stirring once halfway through.
Remove from oven and place cookie sheet on a wire cooling rack, or transfer popcorn to another baking sheet lined with foil. When cool break apart into small pieces.
For the red popcorn, I used strawberry flavored jello, for the blue popcorn I used berry blue. For the white, I just left the popcorn plain. If you wanted to go all sweet you could use microwave kettle corn instead. The Berry Blue Jello was a little bit lighter blue than I had envisioned so I dropped in two drops of food color to darken it a little.
My girls had fun measuring out the ingredients and then bagging it up to give away to their friends! Think of all the fun colors you can mix up for different holidays!
