Homemade Kettle Corn

Kettle corn is such a great snack, easy to make, tastes great, and is good for you (that is hard to come by sometimes).  This kettle corn is done in three easy steps and makes a great big batch perfect for a family movie night, or feeding the whole neighborhood, ha, ha!

This recipe was given a make over- to include  coconut oil  and honey.  The coconut oil gives it such a good flavor, and speeds up your metabolism.

My mom makes this recipe  a lot for the grand kids, they love it.  She made it even more fun by adding sprinkles to it. The kids beg me to make this and I make it A LOT for movie night,  for an after school snack, or when the WHOLE neighborhood is at my house. I let the kids help me pop the popcorn in the air popper, pour on the honey and coconut oil, and sprinkle on the sprinkles they all love it. I haven’t met a kid yet that doesn’t like this kettle corn.  It is a bit sticky though so just make sure they wash their little grubbers before demolishing your house!

Tip: I like to use India Tree sprinkles because they don’t use artificial dyes in their sprinkles.  You can find them on Amazon.


Kettle Corn

  • 1 C unpopped popcorn
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1/4 C coconut oil, or butter melted
  • sprinkles: optional (actually it’s not really optional, the kids LOVE this!)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  1. Air pop all of the popcorn.
  2. Pour it in a big paper grocery sack.
  3. Add the honey and coconut oil to the bag.  Give it a good shake (with it closed).  Sprinkle in the salt and sprinkles while shaking the bag, be careful not to get carried away and get popcorn all over the place.
  4. Enjoy with your little or big ones!

Tip: This kettlecorn is gooey(which I like).  But, if you like a crunchier kettle corn you can broil it in the oven.

    My mom made this for us too. She would broil it in the oven for just a minute and it wouldn’t be sticky. And tasted just like kettle corn

    I always pop my popcorn in coconut oil–never liked air popping. So, would that work just as well? Could then add a little bit more of the melted coconut oil to the honey and popcorn..

      Hi Ruthan! Of course you could!

        If I use popcorn popped in coconut oil on the stove, does that change how much coconut oil I should add when I make it into kettle corn? I bust out my air popper for this recipe right now, but said popper only pops about half the kernels I put in each time, so that doesn’t bode well for future kettlecorn :/.
