Fairy-Dusted Popcorn

Adapted from Kraft Recipes


Once the popcorn is finished, toss with your child's favorite goodies, like chocolate chips, minimarshmallows, peanuts, or even raisins for a really special treat.

To create different colors of popcorn, divide the recipe between various colors of JELL-O gelatin. Or make several large batches and save leftovers for colorful afternoon snacks later in the week.

Fairy-Dusted Popcorn


  1. 8 cups popped popcorn
    1/4 cup butter
    1 3-ounce package JELL-O gelatin
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup peanuts, optional
    1/2 cup minimarshmallows, optional
    1/2 cup raisins, optional
    1/2 cup chocolate chips, optional


  1. Preheat your oven to 300ºF.
  2. Line a 15x10x1-inch sheet pan with foil or parchment paper. Cover the pan with the popcorn.
  3. Heat the JELL-O gelatin, sugar, and butter in a small sauce pan, stirring until the butter has melted and ingredients have dissolved.
  4. Remove from heat and pour over the popcorn, stirring with a spatula to distribute. Bake 10 minutes.
