Caramel Crunch Popcorn

Caramel Crunch Popcorn

In this recipe, a little caramel flavor goes a long way. Although the serving size is small, there’s plenty of satisfying sweet taste and crunchy texture. This recipe makes a big batch and can be stored in an airtight container and kept for about 1 week.

Number of Servings: 24
Serving Size: 1/2 cup


plain air-popped popcorn (about 1 cup unpopped) - 12 cups
granulated sugar - 1 cup
stick margarine - 10 tbsp
light corn syrup - 1/3 cup
vanilla extract - 1 tsp

  1. Cover 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Spread the popped popcorn on the baking sheets in a single layer.

  2. In a medium nonstick skillet, combine the sugar, margarine, and syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, about 3 minutes. Continue cooking and stirring until the mixture turns a light caramel color, 5 minutes; do not overcook or the caramel will brown and burn! Remove from the heat and slowly stir in the vanilla.

  3. Pour the caramel mixture over the popcorn. When the caramel has cooled, break it into bite-sized pieces.
