Recipe by:



1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a large baking sheet and line with parchment; set aside.

3. Divide popcorn into 5 bowls.

4. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine 2 tablespoons butter and 1 1/2 tablespoons corn syrup. Add 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 tablespoon water and 2 tablespoons strawberry gelatin mix. Cook for 7 minutes or until mixture starts to simmer and sugar dissolves, stirring often. Remove from heat and add a few drops red food coloring if desired to brighten color.

5. Carefully pour mixture over one of the bowls of popcorn, tossing to coat well. Spread popcorn out, in a single layer, onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, stirring popcorn halfway through baking.

6. Turn popcorn out onto a piece of parchment and spread it out slightly. Allow to cool completely and break up any clumps.

7. Repeat process 4 more times with remaining ingredients.
