Here is a fun treat to make for Purim from Kveller, the Jewish parenting website. This colorful popcorn would be great to serve at a Purim party or to wrap up and give out as mishloach manot.

When you’re planning a party (for Purim or for any day), it’s always extra special to coordinate your colors. Colored popcorn is a perfect way to bring your whole party scheme together. And for Purim, colored popcorn is a great snack to give out in your mishloach manot (goody bags).
Once you know how to create your own colors, the possibilities are endless. My sister-in-law dressed up her baby as a yellow smile and handed out buckets of yellow popcorn for Purim. If your 5-year-old insists on dressing as a policeman, blue popcorn is the perfect choice. And just because this is a great Purim treat doesn’t mean it doesn’t work year-round for other occasions. Colorful popcorn is always exciting! Pink or blue for a baby shower, green for your garden party…the rainbow is yours to create.
Colorful popcorn is fun to prepare and even more fun to eat. If you plan on buying popcorn to prepare this recipe, be sure to purchase only white popcorn. Yellow popcorn is already artificially flavored and the pink or blue colors will be off (the orange popcorn, though, will work fine).
We at Jew it Up love this colorful popcorn (and any other small treats) packed in these Clear Takeout Boxes from Amazon:
