Grab the kids and transform movie night into a colorful adventure, thanks to this post we created in partnership with JELL-O brand.

I love heading to the movies to see a flick with my daughter, but there's nothing like cuddling at home with the whole family — and a delicious snack. But instead of basic popcorn, get everyone excited with this fun treat that magically transforms everyone's favorite nibble into something so unique, thanks to a bit of fairy dust (JELL-O gelatin mix!).

Create a popcorn assembly line loaded with toasted coconut, nuts, chocolate chips, marshmallows — anything you can think of! Add a scoop of fairy-dusted popcorn to containers and toss with mix-ins.

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.
