Super Easy Caramel Popcorn

Who doesn’t love caramel corn in the fall?  It’s a staple at every Friday Family Movie Night at my house.  And some recipes are easier than others, for sure.  This is the queen of easy, and still yummy!  Just an FYI.. this is the soft, pull apart caramel corn, not the hard poppy cock corn.  Hope you enjoy this as much as my family does!

Super Easy Carmel Popcorn

Makes 12 cups

  • 1 pound brown sugar (2 1/4 cups)
  • 1 cup white Karo syrup
  • 1 cube butter
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 bags microwave popcorn, natural style, popped

Put all popcorn in large bowl, being sure to remove all unpopped kernels.  Bring the sugar, corn syrup and butter to a boil, then add sweetened condensed milk.  Boil to soft ball stage and pour over popcorn.  Mix thoroughly and spread out on waxed paper to cool.

*** A word of warning, pouring that hot caramel over the popcorn can be hazardous to your health, or in my case, hazardous to my little thumb that got in the way of the 200 degree caramel being poured.  Burn, ouch!  So, when you make this, be careful!  No small children around for the pouring stage!!!  🙂
