Kettle Corn

A sweet popcorn treat :-)


  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (peanut oil or canola oil works too)
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • Ad
  • 1 Tbsp. white granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • Coarse salt (to taste)
  • Large pot with a lid


Place the large pot on stove and turn the heat on high, add the oil to the pot. Heat oil till it gets very hot (not smoking). Ripples and veins will start to appear in the oil.

When the oil is hot, add the popcorn kernels then cover with lid. Watch for kernels to pop, once they start popping, turn the heat down to medium.

Carefully shake the pot occasionally to shake the unpopped popcorn kernels to the bottom of the pot and also helps prevent the popcorn from burning.

When the popcorn stops popping, remove pot from heat. Carefully remove the lid so you don't get hit with hot popping popcorn.

Pour the powdered sugar over top. Cover with lid and give the pot a shake to distribute the sugar.


Remove lid, add the both the brown and white sugars to the popcorn, cover with lid and shake it up again.

Put pot on stove again, low heat, to melt the sugar a bit, shake often. Cover with salt (to taste), shake pot again.

Pour popcorn into large serving bowl and sprinkle a bit more salt over top.
