Quick and Easy: Superbowl Candied Popcorn.

Isn't the Super Bowl exciting?!  This year is even better for myself and all my fellow Hoosiers.  Downtown Indianapolis has been buzzing all week!  I made my way downtown with a friend last night to check out all the festivities... It was such an amazing atmosphere!

Since I'm not one of the lucky few who gets to enjoy the game in person I have been preparing some tasty snacks to take with us to the Super Bowl party we will be attending tonight.  I had seen a recipe on Pinterest for candied popcorn and followed the link back to the Eagle Brand Condensed Milk website.  You only need a few ingredients and it was super easy to make!

Candied Popcorn


Microwave Popcorn
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk 
1 box Jello

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and pop popcorn according to package directions.  Put in bowl and separate out all unpopped kernals.  Thinly coat shallow roasting pan with butter and spread popcorn in single layer.  Set aside.

2. On the stove, mix condensed milk and Jello.  Cook on medium heat until hot and begins to bubble.  Pour mixture over the popcorn.  Gently mix hot mixture into popcorn.

3. Bake popcorn for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and spread out on a piece of lightly buttered foil.  Allow to cool and then break into clusters.

Take a look at the finished product!  I was happy with out bright the color turned out!  This would be also be great for a kids birthday party and think of all the color combinations.  I made two batches so I could have blue and red to match the two teams.

Happy Super Bowl everyone!!!
