Colorful Jell-O Candy Popcorn

My whole family loves popcorn so when I came across recipes for Jell-O Popcorn on Pinterest I knew I just had to try it! There are a few different ways to make it but I thought this kind, using condensed milk, was the easiest and I love the idea of adding it to the oven to crisp up! 
Use any flavor and color you want and even make rainbow popcorn!
My little helper is always excited to make treat with me! 
This popcorn was {no surprise} a hit with my girls!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg microwave popcorn {about 8-9 cups}
  • 1 {14oz} can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 {3oz} package Jell-O gelatin {I did two batches and made red and blue}

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. In a medium saucepan mix together sweetened condensed milk and dry Jell-O mix.
  3. Heat and stir over low heat until mixture is slightly thickened and bubbly, about five minutes.
  4. Add popcorn to a large bowl {or paper bag} and pour Jell-O mixture over popcorn. 
  5. Stir gently to coat. 
  6. Spread out onto a lined and greased baking sheet.
  7. Bake 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  8. Remove from oven and let cool then break apart into pieces. 
  9. I also added to my Circus Crunch Munch Mix.
