Berry Blue, Pineapple and Strawberry Popcorn

This is a microwave popcorn recipe.

*12 cups of Air Popped Popcorn and put in large bowl

In a medium glass bowl add the following to make the Jell-O Coating:

*1 3 ounce box Jell-O or 1/2 of large box
*1/4 cup Light Corn Syrup
*1 cube of butter  (1/2 cup), melted

Place the glass bowl of Jell-O Coating ingredients in the microwave. Microwave for one minute take out and stir. Repeat this in 30 second increments until it is very bubbly. If you want a dryer popcorn coating microwave in one or two more increments of 20 seconds, just be careful not to burn the Jell-O Coating.

*Add 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda to the hot bubbling Jell-O Coating this will make it light and foamy, now add to the warm popcorn.

Place Air Popped Pop Corn in greased large glass bowl.

Note: If you have trouble mixing coating over the popcorn, microwave popcorn with Jell-O coating for about 30 seconds this will help in stirring in the Jell-O Coating. (I didn’t need to do this step.)

Tip: Now take the Jell-O Coating stirring it in 1/3 of it at a time onto the popcorn, trying not to have big globs in one spot, mixing with a wood spoon until all popcorn is coated.

Put Jell-O popcorn on cookie sheets with Parchment Paper or Silpat baking sheet liner to dry. (If you still want it to be even crunchier, bake in the oven for on 225*F. For 10-20 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, being careful not to burn Jell-O coating.)
