  • ¼ cup vegetable or canola oil

  • 2 tablespoons (26 grams) granulated sugar

  • 2 tablespoons (30 grams) brown sugar

  • ½ cup unpopped popcorn kernels

  • ¼ teaspoon table salt

  • 3 Red Vines Original Red Twists, chopped into very small pieces

  • 3 Red Vines Grape Twists, chopped into very small pieces

  • Sprinkles (optional)

01. Pop Popcorn Kernels with Salt and Sugar

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Place three popcorn kernels into the oil as it heats to gauge the temperature. When the kernels pop, the oil is ready to go!

Once the oil is hot, add the sugar and let heat for a few seconds to start melting.

Add the salt and popcorn kernels.

Cover the pot. Let the pot sit on the burner for 3 seconds, then lift the pot and shake for 3 seconds. You should start to hear popping after about 60 seconds. Continue heating and shaking until the popping has slowed to once every 2-3 seconds.
