Stir Crazy Kettle Corn

This is a stir crazy popcorn popper. I just don't have the ability to focus on properly popping popcorn in a pan on the stove. ADD won't let me focus on ANYTHING for that long!!
Add oil and a few kernels. When those kernels pop, add the rest. I would give you measurements but every time I measure to find the right combination it ends up not being right at all!
Add sugar, no more than half a cup unless you really like burnt kettle corn... :D
Put the lid on quickly, you will get blisters wherever hot popped kettle corn lands!

When you only hear a few pops hear and there, unplug and flip the whole thing over.

This is burnt :) just the way I like it.

Dump popcorn into a VERY large stainless steel bowl. This WILL melt plastic bowls. Add a little salt if you want and let sit a minute or two while the sugar solidifies. Hot melted sugar is DANGEROUS, do not let your kids touch it until you're sure it's cooled.

This is a clump of sugary, crunchy, salty goodness. Just add chocolate and PMS cravings are satisfied. ;)

Before you eat your popcorn, dump half a cup of water into the stir crazy so that it's easier to clean.
