  • 10 c popped popcorn
  • 1 c butter (sweet cream salted)
  • 1 c light brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • salt (to taste)


    1. Pop popcorn, remove all un-popped kernels, and add some salt
    2. Melt 1 cup of butter in pan over low to medium heat. Should be hot enough to melt the butter but not too hot or the butter will burn (or turn the butter brown).
    3. Add 1 cup of light brown sugar and stir until the brown sugar and the melted butter are mixed thoroughly.
    4. Once completely combined, increase heat to medium-low, just high enough to bring the caramel mix to a low boil. When the surface starts to bubble, set a timer for 4 minutes and stop stirring.
    5. After 4 minutes, add 2 teaspoons of vanilla to the caramel mixture.
    6. Set a timer for 1 minute and stir the vanilla into the caramel mixture.
    7. After 1 minute, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and stir. This will cause the caramel to change colors and foam up a bit.
    8. Drizzle the caramel mixture over the popcorn a little at a time and use a spoon to gently stir the mixture with the popcorn until all kernels are covered.
    9. Pour the caramel popcorn onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and allow to cool prior to serving.
