Team Colored Popcorn


Love an excuse for a gameday style party any time of year!  With the basketball conference championships and March Madness upon us, it's time to crank out some Gameday Style food.  Here is the recipe to make some colored popcorn in your team colors direct from the blog, Celebration Generation.











Glazed Popcorn
(Per flavor/color!)

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
1 small package Jello, any flavor
10 cups popped popcorn



Melt butter and corn syrup together in a heavy pan. Add sugar and Jello, bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Let boil for 5 minutes, remove from heat.
Carefully pour Jello mixture over popcorn – mixture is HOT NASTY LAVA, so it’ll burn you if you’re not careful. Mix well.
Spread popcorn out on a greased cookie sheet, and allow to cool. (Some people like to bake this for 10 minutes at 350F… personally, I like the slight gooeyness it keeps without being baked!).
Make a second batch in another flavor/color, and also allow to cool/dry. Break popcorn up into pieces, and either serve side by side in a bowl, or mix together.
If you’re not using the popcorn right away, store it in an airtight container, or package into baggies.
