National Popcorn Day!

Hello there!  Today is National Popcorn Day and since popcorn happens to be one of my most favorite snacks, I thought I'd re-share a post I did years ago on making kettle corn.  

This recipe literally only takes a couple minutes to complete and I typically have all the ingredients on hand.  You can pull this off during a commercial break!

Here's What You Need
1/2 cup Popcorn Kernels
3 tablespoons Cooking Oil
1/4 cup Sugar

Here's What You Do
Put your Whirley Pop Popcorn Maker on the stove and turn on the heat.  I usually start on high and then reduce the heat to medium after the kernels begin popping.

Pour in the oil, kernels, and sugar.  Shut the lid and wait for the popping to begin.  As soon as you hear the first kernel burst, give the handle a turn and keep slowly turning while the rest of the kernels spring open.  (This is also when you turn the heat from high to medium.)

When the popping stops, remove from heat and pour into a bowl.  Sprinkle with salt.  Enjoy!

Happy National Popcorn Day!
