8 C popped popcorn
1 c sugar
1/2 C butter
1/4 C light corn syrup
2 T any fruit flavor gelatin (at Christmas I select a red and a green)
1/2 t soda
1 t vanilla
Heat oven to 250. Place popcorn in 15 x 10 jelly roll pan. In large saucepan, combine sugar, butter and corn syrup; bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly; remove from heat. Add gelatin, soda and vanilla; blend well. Pour over popcorn; stir to coat. Bake at 250 for 15 mintues; stir and continue baking for an additional 15 mintues. Remove from pan immediately; cool completely on foil. Break into small pieces when it is cooled. Store in tightly covered container. Makes 8 cups.
