Make some homemade kettle corn with this easy and fun recipe. The melted caramel adds the perfect amount of sweetness to this American classic. This is perfect for a midday snack, a movie night or a little pick-me-up right after work.

Kettle-Style Caramel Corn
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar or brown sugar substitute blend equivalent to 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons lower-fat tub-style margarine (50 percent to 70 percent vegetable oil)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 12 cups air-popped popcorn

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, margarine, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt; cook and stir over medium heat just until boiling and sugar is dissolved. Stir in vanilla.

  2. Place popcorn in a shallow roasting pan. Drizzle brown sugar mixture over popcorn; toss to coat. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring once. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Transfer to a large piece of foil or a large roasting pan; let cool for 1 hour. Immediately place in an airtight container; cover and store at room temperature for up to 2 days.
