Delicious! This quick and easy popcorn reminded me of the jello popcorn balls my mom used to make when I was a kid. I used large marshmallows (cut into 1/4's) because I didn't have miniature marshmallows. Also, this made plenty of syrup so I used 12 cups popped popcorn. My family really enjoyed this. I'll be making this in other flavors as well. Thank you for sharing. *Made for Think Pink tag game*
Oh, this is goooood! Mine looks a little different, because I think I didn't get the marshmallows quite warm enough. But that sure didn't prevent me from eating it! Thnx for sharing your recipe mariposa13. Made for THINK PINK Oct 2009.
This was very quick and easy to make, however my family really didn't like it. I thought it was pretty good though. I don't know if I'll make it again since they didn't care for it. However I did enjoy making it. Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.
This was quick and easy and came out great. I used wild strawberry jello and it may have been a bit more sour than I was expecting... maybe a different flavor next time or increase the amount of marshmallow. It may also be my fault since I used marshmallow fluff instead of the mini's. The girls loved the sight of it! Thanks for a great recipe.
The kids enjoyed this simple treat as an after school snack. The popcorn stays sticky/chewy and can also be formed into popcorn balls. Lots of flavor and color from the jello powder. Thanks, mariposa, for posting!
First of all, make sure you use gelatin that has sugar in it. I accidentally used plain gelatin and it came out bland. Not mariposa13's fault - it was my error. I knew something was wrong, so I made it again with "Jello" brand gelatin. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I now think that I want to try this again with other flavors of "Jello". This recipe is very simple to make, but it's also really fun. I wish the kids I used to be a nanny for, were younger because they would have loved making this. They still loved it - but when they were teeny the looks of awe and amazment when you make the popcorn turn pink would have been priceless. Now they are a little older and they a bit harder to impress. So I say, if you have small children, let them help you with this - let them pour the mixture over the popcorn - they'll love it! Oh, I just realised, that Americans may not be used to sweet tasting popcorn. (At home sometimes we put sugar on our popcorn and I notice here it is usually butter) But trust me, trust me - you don't want to skip over this recipe! Thanks for the great recipe mariposa13!
