JDaniel was all for it. He love popcorn and snacking. Creating a popcorn snack was ideal for him. The rest of us like popcorn too and kettle corn was sure to give us a sweet treat. I settled on one that I found on online at Our Best Bites. There are several versions online. This is probably the simplest and it listed honey as an alternative for corn syrup.
While I heated up the butter, honey, sugar and jello mixtures on the stove, JDaniel emptied most of the two bags microwave popcorn into two bowls. I had two mixtures going at the same time. There was a blue mixture in one pot and a red mixture in the other. (I will never do this again. Next time it will be one color at a time.) The sugar mixtures cooled down way to fast to do two different posts at the same time.
It came out a little crunchier and still yummy. I would love to say that it is going to make it to Inauguration Day, but I think this batch will have disappeared. Maybe I shouldn't have halved the recipe. We might have had some leftover if I hadn't done that. I guess we will be making red, white and blue popcorn again.
