PostSubject: Bratt's Jello Popcorn   Thu Dec 23, 2010 8:32 am

Jello Popcorn - microwave recipe


Orange Jello Popcorn for the Easter carrots!
1/3 cup Butter
1/4 cup corn syrup or honey
1/2 cup sugar
1 small package Jello (flavored gelatin mix)
9 cups popped popcorn

1. Spray a large microwave safe bowl and fill with the popped popcorn.

2. Combine corn syrup and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave until melted (40-60 seconds).

3. Add sugar & Jello powder. Stir. Put in microwave and cook 3 1/2 minutes until it comes to a rolling boil (doubles in size). Remove stir and cook for an additional 1 1/2 minutes.

4. Pour over popcorn in a large microwave safe bowl. Stir to coat.

5. Place bowl in microwave and cook on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove, stir, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove, stir and cook for 45 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes. (Watch the color, you can burn the sugar if you cook it for too long.

6. Spread out on sprayed foil and cool. Store in an airtight container.

Notes: You can use any flavor of jello that you like. You can also finish this in the oven.
After step 3. Pour the syrup over popcorn in a large bowl. Stir to coat.
Place on greased baking sheet and bake at 250 degrees F for 1/2 hour, stirring every 10 minutes.
Cool & break apart. Store in airtight container.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!! The sugar syrup is like liquid napalm and will cause major burns if you get it on your skin. Please pour and stir with care!

So you see, imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering.

Notes from Bratt:

You can use any flavor of Jello for this. I have tried strawberry, black cherry, orange, tropical fusion, melon fusion, and lime. Black cherry and tropical fusion are my current favorites from what I have done. Orange is the only one I have not cared for yet-- flavor wasn't strong enough. Feel free to experiment!

I personally do the Jello mix in the microwave and then the rest in the oven. I tried the whole thing in the microwave once and picked out a TON of burnt popcorns! Not cool, but my microwave is crazy at times.
