Kettle Corn Snack Mix

Sweet meets salty in this delicious and easy-to-prep snack.


  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 cup pretzel sticks, broken in half

  • 1 cup Shreddies cereal

  • 1 cup dried cherries

  • 1 cup peanuts, or sliced almond

  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Combine oil with 3 popcorn kernels in a large, wide pot over medium heat. When the kernels pop, add remaining kernels and carefully sprinkle very evenly with sugar. Cover with a lid and cook, picking up pot to shake every few seconds, until the popping slows down, 2 to 3 min. Immediately pour popcorn into a large bowl and stir in pretzels, Shreddies, cherries, peanuts and salt.
