Looking for an awesome after school snack for the kids? Try making Homemade Kettle Corn. It’s inexpensive, a total crowd-pleaser and couldn’t be simpler to make.
Sweet and salty Kettle Corn is synonymous with farmers markets, fairs and festivals. My kids beg for it whenever they catch a whiff of its intoxicating aroma, and I’m hard pressed to refuse them. But it’s also a snap to make at home and easily lends itself to nearly any occasion.
A big bowl of Homemade Kettle Corn is always welcome, whether you are settling in to watch the latest movie in your Netflix queue, hosting an impromptu happy hour with friends or feeding an army of hungry kids after school. You can even make an extra batch and put it in some seasonal bags an an easy and inexpensive gift for friends and family. Or gussy it up with all sorts of fun add-ins, like pretzels or dried fruit.
Because I know chocolate is the fastest way to my kids’ hearts, I doctored up this batch with some spring-colored Sixlets.
I think they liked it. I’m not entirely sure; we try not to talk with our mouths full.
