Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Pop a bag of popcorn. We use Light Butter anyway, but I would think it would be best to use Light or No butter popcorn. Spread popped popcorn on a greased cookie sheet.
Butter a saucepan. Then mix 1 cup butter, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 3oz. pkg. fruit flavored gelatin (we used strawberry, of course), 1 tbsp. corn syrup, 3 tbsp. water in saucepan. Cook over medium heat until it reaches 250 to 265 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Bake popcorn for five minutes, stir, then bake for five more minutes. Turn popcorn out onto a piece of foil.
You can form it into balls or let cool completely and break into clusters.
It tastes a little like caramel corn with a strawbery kick. Clinton loves it. I'm still undecided on making some for favors, but at least Em and Clinton will have a snack for a few days.
