CopyCat Kettle Corn Recipe

Contributed By: Marlene Nord


¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup unpopped popcorn kernels
¼ cup white sugar


Step 1 Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in popcorn kernels and sugar.
Step 2 Cover and shake the pot constantly to prevent sugar from burning. When popping has slowed to once every 2 to 3 seconds, remove the pot from the heat and shake for a few minutes until popping stops.
Step 3 Pour popcorn into a large bowl and allow to cool, stirring occasionally to break up large clumps.

Helpful Hints:

Kettle corn is an old-fashioned, county fair treat. Your family will never want plain popcorn again! If you use white sugar, it will taste like popcorn balls; if you use brown sugar, it will taste like caramel corn.
