Fall Kettlecorn Flavors and Recipes You’ve Got to Try!

As we enter the fall, one of the best perks of the new year is the vast amount of seasonal products, holidays, and foods available to explore. From the famed pumpkin spice lattes to neutral and earth-toned clothing, there is so much more to fall than just the colors of leaves changing. For avid kettlecorn lovers and really anyone who enjoys a good late-night movie snack, there are some fun, tasty kettlecorn flavors and recipes you can explore. We’ll break some down below!

Sweet and Salty Kettlecorn

With a pinch of sweetness and a tiny pop of saltiness, this small bowl of delight can perk up anyone’s taste buds. For a fall snack, sweet and salty popcorn pleases the taste buds while also adding an intriguing flavor to every bite. All it takes to make is:

  • 1 tsp of Salt
  • 1 tsp of Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp of Onion Powder
  • 2 tsp of Paprika
  • ½ tsp of Cayenne Pepper

Grab a popper and some sunflower oil and heat it until the popcorn kernels pop on impact (medium-high heat is sufficient). Mix the ingredients listed above until you get a giant spice mix, and place it on the side. Add the kernels and stir until the popping stops. Dump the popcorn into a bowl, and sprinkle the spice mix. Shake up the bowl to make sure everything evenly distributes, and enjoy!

Sweet Chili Lime Kettlecorn

If you’re a fan of spices, you’ll love this flavor. Sweet chili lime kettlecorn can pack a punch, but it also has enough hint of sweetness that makes it enjoyable. If you need a kick to stay up late for your movie, consider adding this option to the recipe book. Ingredients include:

  • One lime
  • Sea Salt
  • 3 tsp of Chili Powder
  • 3 tsp of Chipotle Chili Powder (adjust powder based on serving size)

The best part about these recipes is that once you make one, the directions are relatively similar to the others. In this case, follow the same routine as you did for the sweet and salty kettlecorn, but stop before adding the mix. Instead, add your mixture of chili powder and lime, and mix the popcorn to evenly distribute everything. Then add your sea salt, mix once again, and dig in!

Chai Pumpkin Spiced Kettlecorn

You didn’t think we’d go long without having something pumpkin spiced, now, did you? This delicious flavor itches everyone’s scratch for the typical fall flavors in a delightful way. Instead of grabbing a latte, why not make yourself this beautiful treat? Start your delicious blast of fall flavors by collecting the following ingredients:

Make a chai spiced blend with:

  • 3 tsp of Cardamom
  • 3 tsp of Ginger
  • 1 tsp of Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of Allspice
  • 1 tsp of Cloves
  • ½ tsp of Nutmeg

Make Pumpkin Sauce With:

  • ½ Canned Pumpkin
  • ½ Cup of Chocolate Chips
  • 3 tsp of Heavy Cream

Again, follow the directions that you would to make the kettlecorn in the sweet and salty section, but stop short of adding the mixture. Instead, you’ll mix your batch of pumpkin sauce and chai blend. Whisk together the pumpkin sauce ingredients, and set aside the mixture of chai blend. First, sprinkle the spice blend evenly over each kernel. Once that’s complete, spread the kernels on a baking sheet and slowly spread the pumpkin sauce over each one. We know your mouth might be oozing to try it, but make sure you finish the drizzle first! Let it cool and dig in with your family or friends!

Caramel Apple Kettlecorn

Tired of the pumpkin spice? Caramel apples will certainly switch up those taste buds. Caramel apple kettlecorn is one of the simplest mixtures you can make but tastes just as great as the others. Here are the ingredients to collect:

  • ½ cup of Caramel Sauce
  • ½ cup of Dried Apple Pieces
  • 2 tsp of Cinnamon

Toss the apple pieces and cinnamon onto your kettlecorn (again following the first few steps to make it listed under the sweet and salty kettlecorn section). After that, drizzle the caramel sauce onto the entire bowl, and your fall movie night snack is complete!
