Caramel Popcorn

Caramel popcorn was a family tradition around Christmas time when I was growing up. It is the perfect crunchy sweet treat.

I haven't made caramel popcorn for ages but Ed recently brought it to mind and I'm hoping to make it soon. My cousin just asked for the recipe to make for New Year's Eve. While I was typing it out for her, I thought I'd share it here. If I get it made this week, I'll add photos.

7 quart popped corn
1 cup butter
2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda

Mix sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt. Bring to boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in soda and vanilla. Pour syrup over popcorn and stir. Bake in 250 oven for 30 minutes. Stir while cooling.


  1. This is the same recipe that I use, only I make a little change, we don't bake ours.

  2. Unfortunately I didn't get to make the caramel popcorn after all. We already had way too much food for the event.....oh well, at least I have the recipe for next time.
    Thanks Gina!


I love to hear from you.
