JULY 4th FOOD: Red, White & Blue Colored Popcorn

Here’s a treat that you can make in any theme colors—just as long as the colors are available as flavored gelatins.

For a red, white and blue display, use JELL-O Berry Blue plus any of the red flavors (there are seven, from Raspberry to Watermelon). You can use standard, pale yellow corn as your white layer, or look for white corn kernels to pop. The colored layers are sweet; the plain popcorn can provide a salty counterpoint.

Layer the colored popcorn in a clear bowl, or fill individual bowls.

Yield: about 16 cups
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
