    Things To Grab


      1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cover 2 (15x10x1-in.) baking pans with foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

      2. To make red popcorn: Place 8 cups of popped popcorn in a very large bowl. In a small saucepan heat and stir butter, corn syrup and strawberry jelly over medium heat until butter is melted. Stir in sugar and strawberry gelatin until smooth. As soon as mixture starts to bubble, reduce heat to low; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Immediately pour mixture over popcorn in bowl and stir to coat well. Spread evenly in one of the prepared pans. Bake 10 minutes. Cool; break into small pieces.
      3. Repeat Step 2 for blue popcorn, using grape jelly and berry blue gelatin. Layer or mix red and blue popcorn with 8 cups of plain white popcorn.
