Easy Kettle Corn Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com Perfect for movie night or snack time!

I love watching movies, but I don’t like going to the theater. It’s always cold, the chairs are uncomfortable, and it’s expensive. I would rather watch a movie at home where I can sprawl out on the couch with my cozy blanket and eat a big bowl of Kettle Corn.

You can’t watch a movie without popcorn and Josh makes the BEST Kettle Corn. I request it every time we turn on a flick. I start the previews while Josh makes a batch of his famous Easy Kettle Corn.

Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. I love all varieties, sweet and savory. Twix Caramel Popcorn, Reese’s Peanut Butter Popcorn, and Garlic Rosemary Parmesan Popcorn are a few of my favorites. I usually make them for special occasions though, not our weekly movie night. Josh is in charge of providing the Kettle Corn for our movie date nights at home!

You only need four ingredients to make Josh’s famous Kettle Corn. Coconut oil is the secret ingredient. Coconut oil is great for popping popcorn because it tolerates high heat. It adds a slight coconut flavor to the popcorn, but it isn’t overwhelming. Don’t worry if you aren’t a coconut fan. The flavor won’t overpower your popcorn.

Josh makes his Kettle Corn on the stovetop with his special Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper. It is his pan, he doesn’t let me touch it. He is the popcorn master at our house. His special popcorn popper has a turn crank on the handle so he can stir the popcorn. This keeps the corn moving across the bottom of the pan, for even heat and oil distribution, ensuring the best popping results. If you don’t have a Whirley Popper, you can use a large pot. Just make sure you shake the pot so the kernels don’t get stuck!

The Kettle Corn only takes a couple of minutes to pop up! It’s a great snack for movie night, game day, or everyday snacking! Josh’s Easy Kettle Corn is one of Caleb’s favorite snacks too! Kettle Corn is a hit with our entire family! I think you will like it too! Get popping!
