When Lindsey and Will get together, they always beg to do a project.
This time they got together, they were hungry and bored….
Jello popcorn is tried and true around here. So easy. Surprisingly tasty.
I had orange jello on hand and happened to have some leftover candy from a candy mix bag.
Genius moment…. I actually had the stuff and didn’t have to run to the store.
Here’s the recipe:
In microwavable bowl, melt 1/2 c butter,
Stir in a 3oz. box of jello (orange in this case). and 1/4 cup corn syrup.
Microwave again until it reaches a full boil (try 1 min. then more if needed). Stir.
Mix in 1/4 tsp. baking soda. Stir for 2-3 minutes.
Mix in 12 cups popcorn. I never actually measure, I just add until its all covered evenly.
Microwave the whole thing for 30 seconds more.
-You can do more if you prefer it crispy instead of gooey.
It was fun, quick, kid friendly and cute.
