Today I’m sharing these adorable printable Valentine’s Day treat boxes over at Yellow Bliss Road! And just incase you need a sweet treat to fill them with…here’s my kettle corn recipe!
Learning how easy it is to make kettle corn was a game-changer! Popcorn has become a favorite evening snack—not the microwave kind (because yikes!) but the homemade, stovetop kind. And for those nights when I need a little something sweet, I make kettle corn!
As a Valentine’s Day treat, I thought I’d try to make colored kettle corn. It turned out so cute! I definitely don’t recommend eating artificial food coloring daily, but for a special treat on a holiday, I think it’s pretty fun 😀
- 3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- ¼ cup Granulated Sugar
- ½ cup Non-GMO Corn Kernels (I recommend Bob's Red Mill White Popcorn!)
- Food Coloring (optional)
- Sea Salt (optional, but highly recommended)
- Add coconut oil and three corn kernels to a large pot on medium high heat.
- Once a kernel pops, add the sugar and swirl the bot to mix—Don't stir with a spoon!
- Once the sugar melts (but before it browns!) add the optional food coloring and the rest of the corn kernels to the pot.
- Cover with a lid and listen for the popping sounds. Swirl and shake the pot to prevent the pop corn from burning. Don't stir with a spoon!
- Once the popping slows and/or stops, pour the popped corn out onto a clean countertop (or onto paper towels). You want the corn to spread out and dry.
- Sprinkle with salt while it's still warm.
- Once the popcorn has cooled for a few minutes, eat and enjoy!
