5 Ooey Gooey Caramel Popcorn

Caramel Popcorn

This is an easy, fast buttery caramel popcorn that is ooey, gooey, sticky and sooooo addictive.

Last spring, my 16 year old was asked to a girl's choice dance.

This large, new, 30 something gallon container was dropped off on our front porch.

It was COMPLETELY filled with theater~style buttered popcorn.

The instructions were to find all the footballs hidden throughout the popcorn.

Inside each football 'egg' were some gumballs and a yellow sticky note.

Each sticky note had a letter that spelled out the name of the girl inviting him to the dance.

We tried to give away the popcorn, but was not successful.

Then we thought, "Why not make Caramel Popcorn?"

This recipe usually calls for microwave popcorn, but we had TONS of it...

The ingredients are simple.

Brown sugar.

Butter. Not a lot, since the popcorn is already buttery.

Light corn syrup.

Mixed together in a heavy bottomed sauce pan.

Brought to a rolling boil.

Don't forget to add the vanilla....

Immediately pour over the popcorn and stir well.

Once you start eating this, you won't be able to stop~

  1. That's an uber elaborate way to invite somebody to a dance. Good lord. But hey, you got lots of yummy popcorn out of it! Mmm, caramel popcorn. If only we could figure out how to make the cheese popcorn at home, too, I'd be in heaven.

  2. Oh my! That looks delicious! I love caramel popcorn.

  3. What a divine recipe! So simple yet looks delicious. What a creative Sadie Hawkins dance date. I know that I wasn't as creative in high school.

  4. That sounds so yummy! But the links to the actual recipe don't work.

    Any chance you could post the whole recipe?


  5. Jill, I just fixed both links ~ thanks for the heads up on the broken links. I'm not sure what happened, but enjoy the popcorn!
