Jello popcorn

This recipe will be loved by my zombie loving family.  I am 100% sure that there will be comments about zombie popcorn.  For normal families this will just be jello popcorn.  You can use any flavor jello.  I just happened to have red Cherry jello left over from our Canada Day recipes last week.  From all the internet research I did, some flavors have much better colors of popcorn than others.  The lime green was not particularly pretty.  This one turned out very colorful.  I think it would be a good Halloween recipe too.  

jello popcorn

-8 cups popcorn  - *1 bag of microwave popcorn*
-3 Tbsp light corn syrup
-1/4 cup butter
-1/2 cup white sugar
-1 (4 serving size) pkg of jell-o

preheat oven to 300.

1. pop microwave popcorn.

2. pick out all the kernels * do not skip this step*

3. in a medium saucepan add corn syrup & butter. cook over low heat until butter is melted.

4. add sugar & jell-o, stirring until jell-o is dissolved.

5. bring mixture to a boil over medium heat. turn down & simmer for 5 minutes *stir constantly*

6. place popcorn in a large bowl. once mixture is finished cooking, add to bowl of popcorn, stirring to coat.

7. line cookie sheet with wax paper or aluminium foil and spread popcorn mixture out.

8. bake at 300 for 10 minutes.

9. cool. 

10. break into pieces.

This smells so yummy when it is cooking on the stove.  An hour later my house still smells like cherries.  

When my kids wake up this is going to be a nice surprise for them!
