Try this yummy Tabasco Kettle Corn #SeasonedHoliday #ad

We watch a lot of movies in our house, when the holidays roll around, we watch A LOT OF MOVIES. Maybe it’s the none stop Christmas Story marathons or that the kids are home for two weeks (save me) – whatever the reason, it’s like a constant movie party. And movie parties call for delicious party food. Right?

Delicious Party Food and Movies! #SeasonedHoliday #ad

Tabasco is a staple in our house. At any given time, we have a least two varieties. Whether it’s splashed on eggs, mac n cheese (Seriously nom) or a kick to homemade soup, we love it. Even my four and a half year old daughter Quincy loves it!

I’m gathering holiday party recipes this week, and I thought it’d be fun to take our kettle corn that we love, and give it a holiday spin, and a spicy kick too.

I love kettle corn. It’s so easy to make and it’s one of those recipes you can tweak to fit your needs – making it the ideal snack to make into a sweet and spicy delicious party food. For some added fun, I thought I’d color it too. It is after all, the Christmas season.

I highly recommend getting one of those stove top popcorn poppers to make this, I do not have one, and I really needed it because it was very easy to get burned and the kernels were EVERYWHERE despite my best efforts. Trust me on this.

Tabasco Kettle Corn

Ingredients
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
Tabasco hot sauce
1/3 cup sugar
food coloring
salt, to taste

Directions
Before you do anything, make sure you have all your ingredients measured out, and a baking sheet ready.

Prep your colored sugar by mixing the food coloring with the sugar in a small bowl. Add a little at a time until you get a nice bright color. You shouldn’t need more than 1/4 teaspoon of color. Add a few drops of Tabasco to your mixture. Remember, you cannot take back what you’ve added so don’t go too crazy.

Add the coconut oil and three kernels of corn to your pot.

Turn on your stove to medium heat, and wait patiently for the kernels to pop, once they pop, add the rest of the corn kernels and the colored sugar and Tabasco mixture.

Start stirring immediately, and don’t stop. (This is why it’s easier with the stove top popcorn maker) The corn will start popping in a few minutes.

Carefully keep stirring as the corn pops. When the popping slows, immediately transfer the popcorn onto a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt to taste.

Allow your popcorn to cool completely before storing so it gets nice and crispy. That is, if you don’t eat it all.
