Homemade Kettle Corn

This popcorn doesn't look like much, but it is actually the best kettle corn you've ever had. And it doesn't have a zillion additives like the store-bought kind. Just three ingredients!


  • 1/4 cup corn kernels
  • 1 tablespoon oil (I use olive oil and you can’t taste the difference)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (basically just use equal parts corn and sugar, if you’re making more)
  1. In a saucepan or pot, heat oil on high for a few seconds so that it gets hot.
  2. Add corn and stir it around a little so it’s covered in oil.
  3. Add sugar and stir.
  4. Put on the lid and shake the pot.
  5. Literally shake it. Keep it as close to the heat as you can, but physically pick up the pot and shake it.
  6. Don’t stop shaking. It’s okay to take a few breaks if your wrists start to hurt, but no more than a few seconds, or the sugar will burn.
  7. Keep the lid on. Don’t take it off. No matter how badly you want to. The kernels will start popping, don’t worry.
  8. Keep shaking until You can’t hear anymore popping sounds. 
  9. Once you don’t hear anymore popping, or if the time between pops is 5 seconds long, you’re done! 
  10. Transfer the kettle corn to a separate bowl.
  11. I like to add some cinnamon too sometimes (not in the above picture), but it’s not necessary.
  12. And there you go! It’ll be slightly crunchy but that’s what makes it gooooood :)
