Microwave Kettle Corn

This post may contain affiliate links.  Thanks for your support.

Last week I shared with you the easy, inexpensive, and so much healthier microwave popcorn.  Well, I kept wondering if there could be more…  Anyhow, I got busy experimenting and came up with my version of Microwave Kettle Corn.

It is crazy delicious…addicting even.  The perfect blend of sweet and salty.
Here’s what you do.
Mix together in a bowl:
1/4 cup of popcorn
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons cooking oil
2 pinches table salt

Pour all the above ingredients into a brown lunch bag and fold the top down twice.

Microwave on popcorn setting or until popping slows. (in my microwave this was about 2 minutes and 10 seconds)
Your bag will be greasy when it come out.

Pour popcorn in a bowl and let it cool.  I know you will tempted to try it right after it comes out of the microwave but WAIT…the sugar WILL be HOT.

While it’s cooling, you might want to mix up and pop another bag, it’s so good…just one bag will not do!

Don’t miss out on any of my upcoming posts…Follow along!

  11. This is such a great idea. My daughter and I just made two bags of this… as you said, one was not enough! I did decrease the amount of oil to 1 teaspoon in the second bag and got just as good results. Thanks for posting it!

  12. tried confectioners sugar, and half season salt for the pinch of salt and it was good- I’m going to up the sugar & oil a little bit next time. But this is definitely a keeper

  13. Where’s the print option?
