Coco Shows off some gorgeous colors that are a part of Mexican culture and the celebration of the Day of the dead. In honor of this amazing movie and the beauty it brings to the screen, I’ve put together a delicious Coco Inspired Popcorn recipe to enjoy while watching this hit! Read on to find out how to make this delicious recipe!
Coco inspired Popcorn recipe!
What you’ll Need:
–1 Bag of Gelatin Desert or Jello Gelatin I went with the Eggnog flavor from D’Gari because it goes on pretty clear and blends in with the condensed milk. (I’ve found this brand at most latin markets and Walmart- but any light colored Gelatin will work like Yellow Lemon or you can also divide the condensed milk and use various flavors for a fruitier taste ie: Strawberry , lemon, orange flavored gelatins.
–Popcorn (as much as you need) I made 2 bags of microwave popcorn for this recipe 🙂
–Food coloring to make the colors pop. I went with neon colors
– 1 can of condensed milk
Pour Condensed milk into a pot and heat on medium, add the gelatin dessert
Mix thoroughly until it’s all mixed well over medium heat.
In separate bowls divide the condensed milk mixture evenly and Add different colors of food coloring to each bowl.
Add different bunches of popcorn and mix in either a big plastic bag or bowl. Spread over a cookie sheet, they’ll be sticky so let them sit for a few hours to harden up a bit. The mixer itself will still be sticky but not as much. It really is a delicious treat to enjoy while watching this fun movie!
