I was looking for a quick kettle corn recipe that I could use popcorn bags with. This was decilicious and quick. My hubby and kids loved it! Its really not that messy. I suggest melting the butter/sugar in a measuring glass with a handle, it get really hot and using the heat resistant spatulas to get all the carmeling mixture in the popcorn. Yummo-O!
