Easy Oven Kettle Corn

If you’re looking for an easy, addictive snack to make for the Oscars on Sunday, then I’ve got the perfect recipe for you! Even my husband, who claims not to like popcorn, couldn’t stop eating this Easy Oven Kettle Corn. I made a double batch while my kids were at school and when they got home, they devoured it, or at least, they devoured what my husband and I had left for them. It was all gone by the end of the night.

You only need 4 ingredients and about 10 minutes to make this sweet and salty treat. You can even use pre-popped or microwave popcorn, as long as choose a variety that has no (or very little) butter and salt to begin with. I popped a half cup of kernels to get the 12 cups needed for this recipe.

Who Dished It Up First: This is an original recipe.



  1. ohhh my word! I eat a bowl of Trader Joe’s kettle corn every night. I might just have to give this a try!

  2. Easier Kettle Corn at home….
    put popping corn and oil in pan on stove as per directions.
    Just as the first kernel pops, quickly open lid and put in about 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar, replace lid and shake vigorously.
    When finished popping, pour into bowl and add salt to taste.
    Let it cool…this is molten sugar!

  3. Oooh… interesting! I’ll have to give this a try!

    I love Kettle Corn, but I’m afraid to make it because I have a glass top stove and glass top + shaking a heavy pot vigorously (as other kettle corn recipes require) don’t mix! Thus, I miss out on kettle corn goodness!

    This method would be totally doable and it sounds delish! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love the contrast of sweet and salty flavors. I never realized it was easy to make! Thanks for sharing 🙂
