  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup sugar (1/4 cup if you prefer less sweet)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Heat large pot or deep skillet over medium heat. Place 2-3 kernels in the oil and place a lid on the pot. Once the kernals pop, remove lid and add the rest of the kernels, sugar and salt.
  • Quickly stir to coat the kernels and place lid back on pot. Shake the pot over heat so help prevent burning.
  • Once the popping starts to slow to every 3 seconds, remove from heat and pour kettle corn onto prepared baking sheet. Spread out the kettle corn and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
