  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Karo Syrup
  • 1 Can Sweet Condensed Milk
  • 2 teaspoon Coconut Extract
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 2 Cups Marshmallows
  • 1 Bag Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 Cups Shredded Coconut


  • In a large non-stick pot, melt the butter. Add the sugar, brown sugar, karo syrup, and sweetened condensed milk.  Bring to a boil while stirring.
  • While using a candy thermometer, bring to a rapid boil of 235-240 degrees. Remove from heat and add the coconut extract and the salt.
  • Pour ¾ of your caramel mixture onto your popcorn and stir until all of the popcorn is covered in caramel.  If you want a lot of caramel on your popcorn, use less popcorn,  I didn't give an exact amount of popped popcorn because everyone like it a little different. For this recipe I would error on the side of a light coating of caramel because we are still going to add a few layers.  Spread the caramel popcorn onto a couple of cookie sheets sprayed with non-stick cooking spray to cool.
  • With the remaining ¼ of caramel, add the 2 cups of marshmallows.  Stir until the marshmallows are melted or almost melted.  Put it back on the heat to melt the marshmallows if needed.
  • Drizzle the marshmallow caramel mixture on the caramel popcorn on the cookie sheets. 
  • In a microwave safe bowl, add 2 teaspoon of coconut oil. Add the chocolate chips and microwave for 1 min.  Stir the chocolate chips.  Microwave for 30 seconds and stir again.  Repeat this until the chocolate chips are melted.
  • Drizzle the chocolate chips on the caramel popcorn and sprinkle the toasted coconut on top.  Let the popcorn rest and cool for about an hour before serving.
  • Put into clear plastic cups to serve.  Enjoy!
