St. Patrick’s Day Popcorn Treat

Here is a fun and inexpensive St. Patrick’s Day popcorn treat that my family devours and looks forward to on this fun green day!
We love getting up and dressed for St. Patrick’s Day, the kids love the silly fun that this day brings. We usually plan for a green dinner, and my kids love pretending what green thing we are eating! We enjoy the traditional green salad, green mashed potatoes, green beans, green Jell-O, green smoothie, etc. for our meals throughout the day. But the green popcorn had become the most remembered, and talked about green dessert. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

8 cups popcorn (popped)
¼ cup butter
3 Tbsp Corn syrup
½ cup Sugar
1 (3oz) box lime Jell-O

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Pop the popcorn and place in a large bowl.
Combine butter and syrup in saucepan and stir until butter is melted, add sugar and Jell-O and combine. Bring mixture to a boil then simmer for 5 minutes
Pour mixture over popcorn and mix immediately stirring until the popcorn is well coated. Spread popcorn onto cookie sheet and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
Allow to cool and enjoy your green St. Patties Day Treat!!
