Fruity Candy Popcorn

“Home is where you are loved the most and act the worst.” –Marjorie Pay Hinckley


8 cups popped popcorn
1/4 C butter
3 T light corn syrup (or honey)
1/2 C sugar
1 3.5 oz box jello, any flavor (not sugar free)

Preheat oven to 300°F.  Line a jelly roll pan with foil or parchment.  If using foil, spray lightly with non-stick spray and set aside. Place popcorn in an extra large mixing bowl.

Place butter and syrup in a sauce pan on medium heat. Stir until butter is melted. Add sugar and Jello and stir to combine.

Increase heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat so it just simmers. Continue simmering for 5 minutes.

After the sugar mixture simmers for 5 minutes, immediately pour over popcorn in bowl. Mix right away and keep stirring so everything gets well coated.  Spread mixture onto prepared pan and spread out evenly.

Pop in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and let cool to room temp. Then break into pieces. You can certainly eat this un-baked as well and it’s just soft and gooey, but definitely bake it if you’re going to pack it up for giving, or serve it as party food so it will be light and crunchy.
