    ShaGun's Note:

    Candied popcorn flavored any flavor you wish. I have loved making these since I was 8 years old. I usually prefer any red kind of jell-o mix. This comes from "Kids’ Party Cookbook."

Butter bottom and sides of heavy 2-qt. saucepan. In the pan combine margarine, sugar, gelatin, water, and corn syrup. Cook mixture over medium heat till boiling, stirring constantly. Clip a candy thermometer to side of pan. Continue cooking over medium heat, stirring constantly, till the thermometer registers 255 (hard-ball stage). Pour syrup mixture evenly over popcorn and shake gently to coat. Bake at 300 for 5 minutes. Shake once more and bake for 5 more minutes. Turn popcorn mixture onto large piece of foil. Cool.

      This recipe seemed too watery to me. It shriveled the popcorn as soon as I poured it on. I ended up having to transfer the popcorn to a clean pan because there was just too much syrup sitting in the pan. I baked an additional 10 minutes and it did finally crisp up. And I added food coloring to deepen the colors.

      Great Recipe! I didn't have a disposable pan, so I used my extra large jelly roll pan lined with tin foil and lightly sprayed with PAM. I added a little bit of vanilla extract along with orange gelatin powder and it turned out wonderful!

      Sooo good! I used strawberry gelatin. My son loved it and he liked to help with the popcorn making. Thanks for a great recipe.
