Carmel Popcorn

1 c Brown Sugar

1/2 c butter or margarine

1/4 c Light Corn Syrup

1 tsp Vanilla

1/2 tsp baking soda

8 cups Popped popcorn


I use popcorn that is popped from an air popcorn machine. Remove any un-popped kernels and place popcorn in a oven safe large bowl.


Add brown sugar, butter and corn syrup to a small pot. Bring the mixture to a rapid boil over high heat.


I like to mix up the before heating because it doesn’t take long before it boils. Let the mixture boil for a 2-3 minutes before removing from heat.


Add the vanilla and baking soda. The baking soda makes the carmel foam up some. Pour the carmel over the popcorn and stir til the popcorn is evenly coated.

Place popcorn in a preheated oven at 300 degrees for 8 minutes.

Stir the popcorn and bake for another 8 minutes. Then stir again.


This is yummy popcorn and the whole house will smell yummy too!! Enjoy!
