Homemade kettle corn is a sure sign of fall! This classic sweet and salty recipe is the perfect kid-friendly snack that’s fun to make and eat!
I’m not sure why, but Fall to me means popcorn time.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, Fall also means pumpkins, cinnamon and snack size candies (Hellloooo Halloween candy aisle — I missed you)…but it also means it’s time for kettle corn!
During the Fall months growing up, my Mom used to surprise my sister and I with caramel corn (speaking of caramel corn, you totally have to try this Cranberry Orange Caramel Corn!) when we got off the bus.
Then on trips to a little town called Old Town Spring, we used to buy a big bag of Kettle Corn.
It was made in a big metal cauldron and I always thought it was so cool.
Years later I discovered that Kettle Corn isn’t all that mysterious.
You don’t have to have a big metal cauldron to make it! Heck, you just have to have a big pot! :-)

Gave this recipe to my husband because it was screaming his name. He made ours in our Whirly Pop and added some red food colouring to make it like pink popcorn. It was amazingly delicious. I can definitely see making it in different colours for special occasions or even a football watching party. Another great recipe. Thank you!
