Recipe by Hannah Kaminsky (BitterSweet Blog and @bittersweet__)

This recipe is perfect for Halloween at home! Homemade kettle corn gets some added immune support* with Sambucol Black Elderberry Syrup for Kids and yummy strawberries. It's great for the whole family and easy to make with the kiddos! Serve it in a spooky serving dish for extra Halloween fun.


  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add the oil and two popcorn kernels before covering the pot.
  2. Once the first kernels have popped, the oil is hot enough and ready to go. Add the remaining popcorn and immediately cover. 
  3. Shake the pot gently every few seconds as the popcorn starts popping. When it begins popping more rapidly, quickly and carefully add the Sambucol Black Elderberry Syrup, re-cover, and shake hard to incorporate. 
  4. Once the popping slows, turn off the heat and let the steam vent by partially uncovering the pan. Let rest until all activity completely stops.
  5. Transfer to a large bowl and sprinkle with salt. Add the freeze-dried strawberries and toss thoroughly to combine. 
  6. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for 1 – 2 days.
