Sugar Free Kettle Corn


The first time that I tasted kettle corn I was on a field trip with one of my kids and we walked past a stand making fresh kettle corn.

The smell of the popping kettle corn was absolutely overtaking.
We had a long drive back on the bus so I thought, why not buy a bag for the ride home.
The kettle corn tasted at least as good as it smelled. We had no problem enjoying it.

The Sugar Free version of a favorite snack.
  • 1/2 cup Popcorn Kernels
  • 1/4 cup Oil- such as vegetable or peanut oil
  • 1/3 cup equivalent Sugar alternative such as Splenda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
Place your oil in the pot on medium heat along with two kernels of popcornBe sure to wear protective covering as when the popcorn kernels pop, it will most likely pop out of the pot. When the popcorn kernels pop, add your remaining kernels, sugar alternative and salt to the pot, Cover the pot and give it a quick shake from side to side.While the popcorn is heating up, make sure that you have a large bowl nearby as you will quickly need to pour the popcorn into it. You will need to use pot holders or mitts as you shake the popcorn and move the pot.Shake your popcorn pot from side to side every minute and a half to two minutes. Once it starts to pop consistently and sounds like the pot is half full, you can remove the pot from the heat or turn the heat off. Continue to shake back and forth.When the popcorn reaches the top of the pot, use a pot holder to remove the top- do not stand over the pot as the popcorn will still be popping most likely. Dump the popcorn into the large bowl. Remember, the pot will be hot so take precautions.
