Now, before you stop reading, hear me out. Yes, I said Jello!

We don’t eat Jello a ton at our house unless it’s for our Thanksgiving 13-layer rainbow jello  or these festive Halloween Spider Shots , or Jello Popcorn.

But at Halloween, we call it Monster Munch because it sounds way more festive that way.

This Halloween Popcorn is so festive and fun! Because you use Jello, you can use any flavor you like. But our favorites are orange and lime. And aren’t those perfect for Halloween or what?



  1. Pop popcorn. You can use either microwave bags or an air-popper.
  2. Cook the Jello mixture according to the recipe below.
  3. Pour over the popcorn and eat gooey or bake for a few minutes for a crunchier popcorn.
  4. Optional- add in candy monster eyes!

So Festive! Tip: Serve it out of a bowl or package it up cute for Halloween party favors or gifts!

Serve this Halloween popcorn while you watch one of these family-friendly Halloween movies.
