I just had to try this recipe seeing that Kettle Corn is one of my favorite types of popcorn. We were not disappointed with this recipe!! It's delicious we tried as the recipe indicated (except for using less oil) and we also tried it a second time with extra sugar. Either way it's great. Out of curiosity, I'm going to see how brown sugar works. I LOVE IT. Thank you Kittencal for sharing! Made it for Pick Me tag game.
