  • Author: Ashley
  • Total Time: 7 mins
  • Yield: 2 1x


A quick and easy way to get that fairground kettle corn taste right at home!


  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1 1/2 TBS sugar
  • 1 1/2 TBS brown sugar
  • 3 1/2 TBS vegetable oil


  1. Mix your popcorn kernels, sugar, and brown sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Make sure the brown sugar does not have any clumps
  3. stir until mixed well
  4. Add vegetable oil
  5. Stir until all blended (refer to photo)
  6. Pour mixture into a paper lunch sack (the kind you buy at the grocery store
  7. Fold the top closed and put on a plate on it’s side (the wide flat side) – please note the oil will leak through so you will definitely want the plate!
  8. Slide the plate (with popcorn bag on top of it) from side to side to level out all the popcorn kernels
  9. Microwave approx 2 min.


Cook time will vary. I follow the general rule, once you don’t hear a pop for 2 seconds, it’s time to take it out.
