Kettle Corn Krispie Treats

Kettle Corn Krispie Treats - www.countrycleaver.com You can’t go to our local hardware store on the weekends without seeing, and most of all smelling, the kettle corn cart outside that is always stacked high with fresh sweet and salty kettle corn pulling you in. It’s the siren song of the popcorn world. And now I can make it at home, and get that sweet and salty pop any time I want. WINNING!

With the the rain coming down hard in Seattle, there is never a better time to get out of Dodge for sunnier locales and sandy beaches – because I’m going to Miami! Next week the annual BlogHer Food conference kicks off and 500 of me and my blogging friends are getting together to talk food, eat food, and photograph food. You don’t feel nearly as weird going out to dinner when everyone else at the table is equally as interested in stacking their food in an artistic way and photographing piles of cupcakes or food truck sandwiches. We are a touched group.

This year, we’re heading south and it’s going to be warm, sunny and I’m counting on an overload of authentic Cuban food and spreading the love of popcorn with my blogging friends. Kernel Season’s and I are teaming up to sprinkle a whole lot of flavor and fun over Miami!

These Kettle Corn Krispie Treats definitely show off my love of Kettle Corn, using Kernel Season’s Kettle Corn seasoning blend. The sweet and salty combo with gooey marshmallow and fluffy popcorn is the whole kit and caboodle here kittens and you will love every bite.

And if you’re a rebel like me – adding some toasted coconut to the top never hurt anybody.

See you on the flip side!

    Ummm kettle corn at the hardware store — where can I find one of those in Kansas City?? It would make tagging along while my husband looks at tools a joy. I can’t even imagine how delicious these must taste!
