Caramel Popcorn

So my computer died. It was a REAL struggle there for about 2 weeks...for me to be out of a computer:) But now I have a back-up of delicious recipes that you're sure to love! I got this recipe from my friend Nettie when we went to a pool party and she broke this gem out. This caramel popcorn is the best I've ever had and positive to create heart attacks, so beware! Perfect caramel popcorn is ooey, gooey, buttery, and ADDICTING!! I promise you won't be disappointed. Just make sure you have A LOT of people to feed it to or you'll eat the whole bowl yourself...seriously. You can't stop eating it. Make it for your next movie night and your guests will think you're the best host in town! Now make it...and then hit the treadmill...

5 regular bags butter popcorn, popped
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Pour popcorn into a very large bowl or two large bowls. In a saucpan, put butter, brown sugar and corn syrup. Stir until melted and boil about 2 minutes. Add sweetened condensed milk and boil for 3-5 minutes until very smooth and thick. Pour over popcorn and stir until each kernel is evenly coated.


  1. I am so excited to try this!

  2. yeah, this will be making a frequent appearance at our house

  3. Have you ever tried this recipe using plain popcorn rather than the microwaved bagged popcorn? If so, how many popcorn kernels would you use?

  4. Kristen, I haven't tried it with regular popped popcorn becuase the butter flavored popcorn is what makes it SO buttery and delicious. I actually don't have the slightest idea! It takes a lot of popcorn though, so pop an extra large bowl full of popcorn. Let me know how it turns out!
