Another great way to use Jell-o! We used the raspberry flavor and the color came out nice and bright and the crunch is similar to butter-toffee popcorn. I DO think this is a 2-person job and you have to be very attentive that you take it out of the oven right away because it burns easily! I am looking forward to trying different flavors!
