Homemade Caramel Popcorn

This Homemade Caramel Popcorn is sweet, salty, buttery, crisp, and super addictive. It blows away any store-bought caramel corn and is so simple to make.

 It’s a great alternative to cookies and candy, and is easy to make a large batch.


– Butter – Sugar – Karo Syrup – Condensed Milk – Popcorn

Pop popcorn, then split between 2 large bowls and set aside.


In a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, then add the sugar, brown sugar, karo syrup, sweetened condensed milk and salt.


Bring to a boil while stirring. Using a candy thermometer, cook until it reaches 235-240 degrees F, then remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.


Pour half of your caramel sauce over the popped corn in one of the bowls and stir with a silicone spatula or wooden spoon until all of the popcorn is evenly covered in caramel.


Spread the caramel corn onto two lightly greased or parchment paper lined baking sheets and let it cool for at least 20 minutes to allow the caramel to set.
