Movie night! And with movie night comes popcorn. We LOVE popcorn at our house. Okay, actually I love popcorn. Anthony and Lilly just like popcorn. Unless it’s homemade kettle corn. Yes, that’s HOMEMADE kettle corn. Sweet, salty, just enough crunch, melt-in-your-mouth. And what’s even better? You can make kettle corn at home. In like 5 minutes. With 3-4 ingredients.
Homemade Kettle Corn
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. uncooked popcorn kernels
Pinch of salt (optional)
Melt coconut oil in large stockpot on medium heat. Add sugar, kernels, and salt. Put lid on top of stockpot. Shake stockpot in circular motions every 30 seconds. Dump into large popcorn bowl when kernels are all popped – if you let popcorn cool down in stockpot, it might burn! Put in desired mix-ins: chocolate chips, coconut flakes, almonds, M&M’s, etc.
I just wish I had this wooden bowl to hold our popcorn. So pretty!
*The original recipe I found came from here. I tweaked it a bit for our family – I use coconut oil and add salt. But if you Google homemade kettle corn there are a ton of recipes.
