If you are a movie buff then the night the movie award show airs is a big night! I have to say, I’m not that into Hollywood glitz and glamor. And with three busy kids our family rarely has time to watch movies. Let me take that back, we don’t watch current movies, we are sort of stuck in the 80’s. Movies like Back to the Future, Indiana Jones and Star Wars are still alive in the lulu household. I definitely appreciate movies. I appreciate the creativity, the work and the fact that they can visually take us away from our everyday lives.
This year I am going to make a point out of watching the movie award show. This is my chance to get in on current events, get out of the 80’s and be part of the modern entertainment scene. If I’m going to watch an award show about movies, I am going to eat what I would when I watch the movies; POPCORN. I love popcorn, I could eat a huge bowl of popcorn for dinner any night of the week. Often I make sweet popcorn, like this Samoa Popcorn and this peanut butter flavored party popcorn. But honestly, a popcorn that has a little salty and a little sweet is really the best.
Easy Kettle Corn Recipe
This kettle corn recipe has both! The popcorn has a little brown sugar for a little caramel color and SPLENDA® Granulated Sugar Substitute for the rest of the sugar, which kept my kettle corn a little more on the lighter side. The finishing touch in this easy kettle corn recipe is a little heat from my favorite bbq seasoning. Any seasoning will do, just use your favorite. I added a full two teaspoons to my popcorn, of course, adjust this seasoning to your tastes.
This spicy and sweet kettle corn recipe was the perfect snack for my movie award viewing night. However, this popcorn will easily make a regular appearance in my house; it is the perfect snack!
- 1/4 cup vegetables oil
- 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
- 2 tablespoons SPLENDA® Granulated Sugar
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- salt to taste
- 2 teaspoons bbq seasoning (or to taste)
- Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
- Add kernels to hot oil along with both sugars; stir. Place a lid on the skillet.
- When a few kernels begin to pop, lift skillet and shake in a circular motion. Place skillet back on heat and allow a few more kernels to cook then left and swirl again. Continue this process until popping begins to slow.
- Remove saucepan from heat and pour popcorn into a large bowl. Sprinkle popcorn with salt and bbq seasoning. Serve.
