Kool-Aid Popcorn

I have this Kool-Aid popcorn picture on my Pinterest board. I just think it's the coolest! You get color and flavor all in one! Just imagine the possibilities! You will be seeing this again for Madison's birthday party this year!


  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 cup Light Corn Syrup
  • ⅔ cups Butter Or Margarine
  • 6 quarts Plain Popped Popcorn
  • 2 packages Kool-Aid (Any Flavor You Want)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 225 F.

Boil sugar, syrup and butter/margarine together for 3 minutes.

On a large shallow ungreased baking dish, spread out popped popcorn.

In a separate bowl, combine the Kool-Aid with the baking soda.

Remove sugar syrup from the stove and carefully stir in the Kool-Aid mixture. (Note: This will make the sugar mixture puff up. Be careful to not get burned.)

Now take sugar mixture and pour it over the popped popcorn. Carefully mix all till combined.

Place it in the oven and stir every 10 minutes. Repeat this 3 more times.

Take popcorn out of the oven and when it starts to cool, break it apart into pieces.

  3. Thanks for the link! I have a party planned for the end of the month. Can't wait to try it!

  4. This is a great way to add color to a dessert table. You could match any bold color scheme. I'm thinking maybe red, white, and blue for Fourth of July. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I'm making this right now for my hubby for Valentine's Day. I mixed Cherry and Lime to try to get a Cherry Limeade flavor! I can't wait for it to cool!

  6. Im wanting to make this for my daughters beach party. How many days in advance do you think I could make this? Do you cook for a total of 30mins then?
