Sweet and Salty Kettle Corn Party Mix
Get great flavor and big crunch without the seasoned salt and margarine.
Why This Recipe Works
Crunchy, salty, and borderline addictive, homemade party snack mix is guaranteed to disappear quickly at any gathering. But after making a back-of-the-box party mix recipe, we felt there was room for improvement. For our Sweet and Salty Kettle Corn Party Mix recipe, tasters preferred the nutty sweetness of melted butter to margarine and olive oil, both of which left a greasy finish. We used maple syrup for our recipe’s sweetness, and a bit of salt lent the party mix recipe enough saltiness.
