I was making popcorn for a movie night tomorrow, since I had found my recipe for pink popcorn after having lost it for years.  So I was thinking to myself... I could make any colour popcorn I wanted.... I could make *rainbow* popcorn if I wanted....
And so it was!

Unfortunately, I ran out of popcorn... this should have made almost twice as much... so I'm sure it'll be super sweet, since I still used all the coating.  *giggle*

edit:  Due to ... semi-popular demand (re: 2 people Wink) I'm posting my recipe and process stuff. Smiley

You'll need....
2 big ol' bowls full of air popped popcorn (I used one, but you could spread this out further to make two)
2 more big bowls (For purposes of my process, I'm using 4 bowls total, it all depends on how many colours you want. Smiley)
3 little bowls
saucepan or a small cooking pot
1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
1/3 cup o' water
1/8 cup of butter
and some food colouring!

Divide your popcorn evenly between the 4 big bowls. Throw the water, sugar, and butter in your pot and stir it up.  Bring it to a boil and then seperate it up into the 3 bowls, and leave some in the pot (or you can use 4 little bowls and divide it up evenly, I just like to use the pot as a bowl 'cause I hand wash dishes and less dishes makes me happy. Smiley) This is your coating!
Add food colouring to the first bowl of coating and mix it in.  Use a fair bit, 'cause it'll be less intense once it's on the popcorn. Then drizzle it bit by bit over one of the big bowls of popcorn and stir it all up.  Continue for the rest of your colours. 
Once all of your colours are done, stir them each seperately a little more (just so they don't all chunk up while they dry). Then let them sit for a bit.... half hour... hour or so... and then toss 'em all in a big bowl and mix them all together!

To answer the question of if they're flavoured: they're not flavoured, per se, but the sugar and butter definitely make them sweet.  If you've ever gotten a box of 'pink elephant popcorn', it tastes like that. Smiley

Cool popcorn! Is it flavored, or just colored? (Jello and Kool aid both come in those colors....)


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

that looks awesome! how on earth did you do that??

Thanks all!  I'll update my first post with the process.  You've been warned, though- it'll mean a lot of dishes to wash.

Yeah, the best projects always seem to result in much mess making (gives a different twist to the "have to break a few eggs to make an omelette")...

Thanks for posting the instructions.  I think this will make for excellent party food!

I just bought a new house... okay the house isn't new... it was actually born in the same month and year I was!!

Most definitely a great party food!  I'll have to make some for a friend's birthday next week as well, if I have the time..... and any other occasion I can come up with... just think of the possibilities: sports parties with team colour popcorn, 4th of July popcorn, Christmas popcorn, Halloween popcorn....
