Popcorn Recipe:

  • 2 bags of microwavable popcorn
  • 6oz flavored gelatine (Jello)
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 2/3 C. white sugar
  • 2/3 C. corn syrup
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 300°F.
  2. Microwave 2 bags of popcorn as directed on the bag. Pour out the contents into a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Begin by melting the butter on medium heat in a small saucepan on the stove. While stirring, add in the sugar and corn syrup.
  4. While continuing to stir, add the flavored gelatin mix.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  6. Once the mixture reaches a boil, immediately remove the saucepan from the heat and continue stirring.
  7. Carefully pour the hot mixture onto the popcorn, and then mix together until the popcorn is evenly coated.
  8. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then pour the popcorn onto the sheet as evenly as possible.
  9. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, periodically checking on the popcorn, then remove from the oven. (Note: remove earlier if the popcorn appears to begin browning.)
  10. Let the popcorn cool.
  11. Once cool, spoon the popcorn into a serving bowl. If any has clumped while hardening, break it apart.
  12. Eat and enjoy!

Paper Cones + Holder DIY:

  • 3 rectangular sheets of red striped paper (9 x 12in recommended)
  • 3 blue sheets of blue striped paper (9 x 12in recommended)
  • 1 roll of parchment paper
  • 1 Roll red wrapping paper
  • 1 Rectangular cardboard gift box (11x16x3in recommended)
  • Tape
  • Red, white, and blue construction paper
  • Measuring cups for tracing (Note: These can be substituted with any round objects with similar dimensions)
  • Scissors or X-Acto knife
  • Star shape punch (optional)
  • Glue

Paper Cones:

  1. Start by rolling a sheet of striped paper in red or blue into a tube shape, tightening the roll at the bottom to create a cone shape.
  2. Wrap the bottom with a strip of tape to hold the cone in place.
  3. Cut a sheet of parchment paper down to the size of your striped sheets of paper.
  4. Repeat step one with the piece of parchment paper and tuck this new cone into your striped cone.
  5. To create a Captain America shield for the popcorn cone, begin by tracing a circle onto a sheet of red. Cut out the large red circle.
  6. Trace a slightly smaller circle onto a white sheet of paper. Cut out the medium white circle.
  7. Trace a circle slightly smaller than the white circle in step 6 onto a red sheet of paper. Cut out this small red circle.
  8. Trace a circle slightly smaller than the red circle in step 7 onto a blue sheet of paper. Cut out this smallest blue circle..
  9. Lastly, use a star shaped hole-punch to cut a star out of a sheet of white paper (or draw and cut stars that would fit within the smallest blue circle)
  10. Glue the circles onto each other, layering them centered over one another from largest to smallest, and finishing them off with the white star. This should result in a pattern of red, white, red, and blue concentric rings—just like Captain America’s shield!
  11. Glue this finished shield onto the rolled popcorn cones to give them an extra patriotic punch.
  12. Repeat steps 1-10 six times to create a total of six cones.

Paper Cone Holder: 

  1. Place the lid of your gift box onto your box and tape it securely into place.
  2. Wrap with the box completely with red wrapping paper.
  3. Using a pen or pencil, mark 6 dots—evenly spread across the lid—to indicate where to cut holes for your popcorn cones.
  4. Using an X-Acto knife or scissors, cut X shapes where you marked your dots, cutting through the wrapping paper and cardboard of your gift box.
  5. Bend down the edges of your X-shaped cut and fit your cones snugly into opening.
  6. Lastly, fill the empty cones with popcorn and serve to your family of hungry heroes!
