Fast, Easy Homemade Kettle Corn


  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Popcorn Kernels
  • 2-3 Tbs Sugar depending on desired sweetness. I use 2 for less sugar.
  • 1 tsp Salt


  • Grab a large pan with a lid. 
  • Turn stovetop on high heat.  
  • Add your coconut oil. Let coconut oil heat up and begin to sizzle for approximately 3 minutes. 
  • Once oil is hot and sizzling, add your popcorn to pan.
  • Top kernels with sugar. 
  • Place lid on. Shake pan to keep kernels moving while popcorn pops.
  • Remove from heat immediately after popping begins to slow.
  • Add salt.


Sugar burns easily, so make sure your oil is hot before adding popcorn and sugar; shake continually while popping, and remove immediately when popping slows to ensure kernels do not burn.
