This was so fast and easy to make; the first time I have made popcorn on the stove too!! It had a great salty/sweet flavor and was a perfect afternoon snack. Made for 2011 Best of Cookbook Tag.

This is a great way to cook it. It was my first time doing it in a pan. DH didn't like it sweet. So next time we'll omit the sugar. And add more butter at the end. Thanks MsSally :) Made for I recommend tag game

Yummy! We loved this version of kettle corn. It was so easy. It's acutally a healthier kettle corn recipe than most. It has great flavor...slightly sweet and oh so good. Thank you!
