Rainbow Popcorn
  • 2 quarts (8 cups) popped popcorn
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine
  • 3 tablespoons corn syrup
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 pkg. (3 ounces) gelatin dessert powder, any flavor (Jell-O)
  • Sugar sprinkles, optional

Here's How:
Preheat oven to 250º F. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper or foil; set aside. Spray a large bowl with cooking spray (to reduce sticking) and place popcorn inside; set aside. Heat butter, corn syrup and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring to blend. When butter is melted, stir in gelatin until completely dissolved. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Immediately pour hot mixture over popcorn and stir to coat completely. Spread onto prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar sprinkles, if desired. Bake 12 minutes; cool in pan. Break into small pieces to serve.

To store: place in an airtight container.

Yield: 8 cups
