Yield:  6 servings

 INGREDIENTS

  • 9 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cup white choocolate or vanilla melting candy, divided
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry-flavored instant gelatin mix
  • 1/2 cup milk chooclate melting candy

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Divide the popcorn evenly into three large bowls and remove any unpopped kernels.
  2. Place 1/2 cup of the white melting candy in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds. Stir until melted and smooth. If needed, add additional heating time in 30-second increments, stirring after each time, until the candy is melted and smooth. Whisk the strawberry-flavored gelatin mix into the melting candy.
  3. Pour the melted candy over one bowl of popcorn. Using a large spatula, gently stir to coat.
  4. Spread the popcorn mixture on a large piece of parchment paper or a large silicone baking mat. Allow to cool until the candy coating has hardened, about 20 minutes.
  5. While the first batch of popcorn is cooling, place the remaining 1/2 cup white melting candy in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds. Stir until melted and smooth. If needed, add additional heating time in 30-second increments, stirring after each time, until the candy is melted and smooth.
  6. Pour the melted candy over one bowl of popcorn. Using a large spatula, gently stir to coat.
  7. Spread the popcorn mixture on a large piece of parchment paper or a large silicone baking mat. Allow to cool until the candy coating has hardened, about 20 minutes.
  8. While the first two batches of popcorn are cooling, place the milk chocolate melting candy in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds. Stir until melted and smooth. If needed, add additional heating time in 30-second increments, stirring after each time, until the candy is melted and smooth.
  9. Pour the melted candy over one bowl of popcorn. Using a large spatula, gently stir to coat.
  10. Spread the popcorn mixture on a large piece of parchment paper or a large silicone baking mat. Allow to cool until the candy coating has hardened, about 20 minutes.
  11. Once all batches of popcorn are cooled enough that the candy coats are set, mix them together in one bowl and serve immediately. The popcorn may be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
