I have this fun little Irish Luck Kit I made for our last Pinterest Party I had with our friends and made this yummy flavored popcorn. Normally, I am not a big fan of these types of popcorn because I do not like corn syrup based food, but I came across a different type of recipe that used honey instead and so I tweaked it for this type of popcorn dish. That makes it healthier, right? 😉 It is super yummy and super sweet. One cup of this was more than enough for me. Best of all, it was super easy to make. You know how I love that!

What You Need:
- 1/4 Cup Gold Kernels (popcorn kernels like our favorite Pop Secret) -Popped it will make about 8 cups
- 1/4 Cup Liquid Gold (butter)
- 3 T Honey
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1 Box of Irish Luck (lime jello)
- Sauce pan
- Baking sheet covered in tinfoil and lightly greased
- Wooden spoon or spatula
Step 1: Preheat oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit and prepare your baking sheet ahead of time by covering it with tinfoil and lightly greasing it.
Step 2: Pop your popcorn and set aside in a large bowl. Air poppers are great because they don’t add any extra oil or butter to your popcorn and it’s fast!
Step 3: In your saucepan on the stove over medium heat, melt your butter and honey together.
Step 4: Add sugar and gelatin to the pan. Stir to combine. Once mixed, increase the heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Step 5: After the sugar mixture has simmered, immediately pour the mixture over the popcorn in the bowl. Be careful not to burn yourself.
Step 6: Mix immediately and continue stirring until the popcorn is well coated.
Step 7: Spread the mixture evenly onto the prepared pan and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. This helps make the popcorn a little crispier instead of gooey and soft.
Step 8: Remove from the oven and allow the popcorn to cool to room temperature. Then break the popcorn into pieces. Make sure you do not store or wait a long time to break the popcorn up. One time I made this super fast and then took it with me in the car thinking I would break it up later…by the time it was super cold, it was stuck to the tinfoil and a big hard mess to take off the tinfoil. Room temperature was perfect and super easy to remove!
Step 9: Enjoy!
My kiddos are popcorn lovers and loved it plain and sugared. Just remember to have fun!!!
