Summer Olympics PopCorn Treats

Cherry, Plain and Blue Berry Popocorn

Do you have your Olympic Party Food Lists ready?

I made Patriotic Popcorn for the 4th of July and it was a hit so we will be making it for the Olympic Festivities as well.

Cherry, Plain and Blue Berry Popocorn

I made mine red white and blue but you can make them any colors that you want. (That is if you are one of my non-USA followers that will be rooting for another team.)

I make homemade Caramel Popcorn for the kids and thought this would be a cute and fun way to celebrate and I was right–the kids (and adults) all gave it 2 thumbs up approval.

I played with my caramel corn recipe to create this Red White and Blue PopCorn.


You will need:

  • 6 cup of Popped Popcorn for each color (Red White and Blue)
  • 1/2 cup of Butter (each) for the Red and Blue Popcorn
  • 1/4 cup of Corn Syrup (each) for the Red and Blue Popcorn
  • 1/2 cup of white granulated sugar (each) for the Red and Blue Popcorn

(I like using white sugar for this popcorn because the brown sugar can change the color of your flavored popcorn.)

  • 1 tsp of vanilla for the Red and Blue Popcorn
  • 1 package of flavored jello – 1 box for the red (I picked Cherry) and 1 box for the Blue (I picked the Berry Blue)

OPTIONAL: You could do a drizzle of white chocolate over the plain popcorn if you wanted to do something WHITE on that popcorn.
OPTIONAL: You can add food coloring to your caramelized mixture if you want a more intense color.

Pop your popcorn and place 3 Cups (1/2 of your popcorn) in a bowl.

Make one color at a time.
Melt your butter, add in the corn syrup and sugar and let it begin to thicken.  Add in the vanilla and dry jello packet and blend completely, let it thicken about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour 1/2 of your caramel mixture over the popcorn. Add the other 3 cups of Popcorn to the bowl. Add the remaining caramel and stir quickly to cover all the popcorn. Spread it out on a cookie sheet to cool. Break it apart and place in bags, cups, canning jars or just place it in a bowl for everyone to jump in and enjoy.

Make your next batch (color) of caramel ad repeat the process so you have your Olympics Team Spirit Colors.

I placed the red to one side, the blue on the other and then we filled in the middle with our plain “white” popcorn.

This popcorn is fun to make and take for treats to sports events for your kids team–showing your team spirit. It is fun to make for a birthday party, Christmas…the possibilities are endless.

You can customized the colors to whatever event you are attending.

know rather than paying a higher price for flavored gourmet popcorn you can make it yourself.
