Time for Kettle Corn!


It's that time a year in New England where Kettle Corn is predominant at all the festival. And also, is a great treat for Halloween or Pumpkin Carving Parties. And if you still hand out homemade treats to your trick or treaters this is a great snack!

Today, I'm attending the Annual Grass Girls Pumpkin Carving Party and I know they love kettle Corn. So what better Hostess gift to bring. It was very easy and cheap to make. I had all the ingredients on hand. There is a great video on YouTube here, to really explain how easy it is.

After it was finished I added my special touch of drizzling milk chocolate and orange candy melts on it. Simply delicious!!

INGREDIENTS -
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. popping corn
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 T. brown sugar
1 T. granulated sugar
1 T. course salt

DIRECTIONS -
* Place oil in a tall popping pan with a lid. Let it get really hot!! Add popcorn , cover and let it pop, after the first couple pops, turn down the temperature to MED. Continue to shake and pop.
* When you hear no more popping, add in remaining ingredients and shake the pot completely. You may even take a wooden spoon and stir it to make sure everything was mixed in. (May need more salt depending on your taste)
* Take off burner and allow to cool. Spread out on a cookie sheet and drizzle milk chocolate over it. Allow to dry before packing it away.
ENJOY!
