Caramel Drizzle Popcorn

I like my caramel popcorn gooey. You know the stuff in tins at Christmas that is rock solid and too sugary? Bleh. I like to drizzle this caramel sauce through the popcorn, toss it, then drizzle some more. It's not too sweet and it's always gooey, the way it should be:) I love this recipe because it doesn't call for corn syrup (who has karo on hand anyway?) and uses honey instead. The pinch of salt is perfect. Just don't get your sticky fingers on the tv remote ok?

Husband Rating: 5 stars

5 cups popcorn

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup honey

1/2 tsp. salt

4 Tbsp. butter


In a saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, honey and salt. Stir constantly until smooth and caramel like, just before the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and drizzle over popcorn. Tastes delicious warm or cold.

You could get creative and mix in pecans, walnuts, almond slivers, peanuts, chocolate chips, m&ms, dried fruit, anything!

Let me also give a quick shout out to my favorite microwave popcorn popper. It was like $12 at walmart and works like a dream. Thank you, Orville Redenbacher

Hi Camille,
This sounds great! I make a carmel popcorn with brownsugar, butter and marshmallows. I'm so glad you saw you were featured over at my site. My computer has been down for a couple days and I'm at the library catching up on things.
Thanks again for linking up!!!!

I was looking for caramel sauce on google and I'm glad I found this recipe! I only made a few adaptations to make it vegan by using brown rice syrup instead of honey, and vegan butter. But in the end, this recipe was spot on! The final texture was prefect for popcorn, and we ate every sweet and salty bite! :D
