I love flavored popcorn. But spending $10 for a bag of it at the local mall is not in the cards for me and so I was pretty excited when I saw a recipe for it on pinterest. I was extra excited because my popcorn maker is pretty much my favorite cooking tool in the kitchen. You see, I really am not a fan of microwave popcorn, but fresh popped popcorn... it's one of my major weaknesses.
So I pulled out my handy popcorn maker and got to work, hoping that the recipe was as awesome and pink as it looked.
I popped the popcorn and put it in my buttered turkey roasting pan:
Then I followed the recipe from the site to make the strawberry part (I picked strawberry because I knew the girls would love it, but you can use any flavored gelatin to make the flavor of your choice):
And voila! After a little bit of baking the popcorn was crunchy and not in the last bit sticky. In fact, it was way less messy than buttered popcorn! It's tasty!
And it's way, way less expensive than buying pre-made flavored popcorn!
This is definitely a recipe I'm going to bring out on the girls birthdays! Who knew that making flavored popcorn was this simple?
