A very colouful treat to to all my dearest co-bloggers on this Friendship Day -
Assorted Fruit Flavoured Rainbow popcorns
8 cups popped popcorn
Butter ( half a stick)
3 tbs light corn syrup (honey is a good substitute)
1/2 cup sugar
1 3.5oz box jello, any flavor (not the sugar free kind)
How to do:
Place butter and light corn syrup/honey in a sauce pan on medium heat. Stir until butter is melted. Add sugar and Jello and stir to combine.
Increase heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat so it just simmers. Continue simmering for 5 minutes.
After the sugar mixture simmers for 5 minutes, immediately pour over popcorn in bowl. Be careful, it’s super hot!! Mix right away and keep stirring so everything gets well coated. This will take some trial and error to get the right consistency. If the mix is too thick and cooled, it will not coat the popcorns properly and fully. But, the mix shouldn't be too thin either.
(click here for recipe source and step-by-step pictures of the making. I have used the same quantity of ingredients .Sorry I couldn't get some clicks myself, as you really need to get moving fast)
Line a baking pan/tray with parchment paper and spread out evenly.
|Lime flavoured Jello used here and it gives a lovely pista green colour|
Pop in the oven (pre-heated to 150 deg C) and bake for about 10 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and let cool to room temp.
|uisng cherry flavour. This was the most liked....both in appearance, and taste.|
Break into pieces and enjoy!
The flovours used -
Cherry (pink), Lime (green), Lemon (yellow), Apple (redish ones). You can either use them separate, but to raise the"attractive" coeficient, i would recommend you mix all of them together.
You can certainly eat this un-baked as well and it’s just soft and gooey, but definitely bake it if you’re going to pack it up for giving, or serve it as party food so it will be light and crunchy.
Cooled and packed in zip-lock pouches for a food sale and they were done just in about half an hours time. Along in here in the above picture, are other two varieties as well - Caramel popcorns with mini marshmallows and to the left, are Savoury spicy flavoured popcorns with roasted corn kernels. Their recipes follows shortly. Till then..have a great time ahead...
