Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup popcorn
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 11 ounces candy corn
  • 2 cups chocolate covered peanuts
  • -OR-
  • 2 cups peanuts salted or unsalted your preference
  • 1/2-1 cup chocolate candy quick

Instructions

Chocolate Covered Peanuts

  • On your work surface, lay down about 1-2 feet of wax paper and spread out the 2 cups of peanuts.
  • Melt chocolate following package directions, the drizzle over peanuts. You can cover them completely or you can just drizzle the chocolate. We like fully coated. Wait for chocolate to harden then break up peanuts that are stuck together, add the peanuts and the candy corn to a large bowl, set aside. 
  • Make kettle corn, I have two different ways you can do this. I prefer the method of using a Stir Crazy popcorn machine, as it is super easy and makes less mess. I have included the directions below for both methods.
  • *For large parties, I double the kettle corn recipe and keep everything else the same, it helps it go a little bit further.

Stir Crazy Instructions

  • Plug-in the Stir Crazy
  • Pour in the oil and add popcorn
  • In a small bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon.
  • Wait for a minute or two then add the sugar evenly over the popcorn kernels
  • Place lid on the Stir Crazy and wait for all kernels to be popped.
  • Un-plug and turn over stir crazy – add salt to taste.
  • Once kettle corn has cooled, add to the large bowl with the candy corn and peanuts.

Stove Top Instructions

  • Pour the oil and corn kernels in a large pot over med-high heat (make sure you use one that has a tight fitting lid).
  • Place the lid on top of the pot and mix it around a few times directly on burner.
  • In a small bowl stir together sugar and cinnamon, then add sugar directly on top of the corn kernels.
  • Replace lid and shake the pot in circular motion on the burner, until you hear the kernels start to pop.
  • Continue to shake in a circular motion while the kernels are popping until they are all completely popped. Remove from heat, add salt to taste. I like to pour the kettle corn on the counter to cool, with this method, so it doesn’t stick to the pan.
  • Once kettle corn has cooled, add to the large bowl with the candy corn and peanuts.

Notes

TIP: Trust me, the $25 investment for the Stir Crazy is well worth it! Check it out here.
