How To Make 4th of july popcorn

  • 1
    Pop popcorn into a large bowl, set aside.
  • 2
    In a medium size sauce pan, mix together, sugars, jello, water, and corn syrup. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly until lightly boiling. Don't over cook.
  • 3
    Pour jello mixture over popped popcorn stirring continuously until evenly covered. Continue stirring until popcorn has cooled down and dried to keep popcorn from sticking together. Popcorn should have a sugary, crispy coating, not gooey.

    I used cherry Jello for the red and berry blue Jello for the blue. Doing both colors means you need to pop twice as much popcorn and mix the coatings separately.
