Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 10 cups popped popcorn (about 1/2 cup unpopped kernels)

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Once it reaches a boil, stop stirring and let it boil for 4-5 minutes without stirring.
  2. Remove the caramel mixture from heat and carefully stir in the baking soda and vanilla extract. The mixture will bubble up, so be cautious.
  3. Place the popped popcorn in a large, oven-safe bowl. Pour the caramel sauce over the popcorn and gently stir to coat all the popcorn evenly.
  4. Preheat your oven to 250°F (120°C). Bake the caramel-coated popcorn in the oven for about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to ensure even coating.
  5. Remove the caramel popcorn from the oven and let it cool completely. It will become crisp as it cools.
  6. Break the cooled caramel popcorn into clusters and enjoy!
