The secret ingredient in this recipe will have you feeling like there's a ton of butter and cream in there... though there's not. Go ahead and indulge in this ooey-gooey treat! This recipe uses the microwave. If you do not have fleur de sel, simply use coarse grain salt or simply omit.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pop the corn, ideally with no salt or butter; set aside.
  2. Melt butter in microwave and dissolve powdered milk. Add syrup and sugar.
  3. At power level 6, bring mixture to a boil. Stir, and return to microwave.
  4. Heat for 30 seconds then stir.
  5. Repeat 4th step 6 times (3 minutes total).
  6. Add vanilla and baking soda; pour over the popcorn and toss to cover.
  7. Return to microwave and repeat step 3.
  8. Repeat 4th step 4 times (2 minutes total).
  9. Set aside and allow to cool. Stir popcorn every 15 minutes or so until cold to prevent it from forming one large clump.
