Caramel corn eat your heart out! I am never going back! An old recipe whose source I lost. Posting here because I can't eat it without accurate nutrition info. I would happily blow a meal's carbs on this! Cooking times are an estimate.


  1. Keep popcorn in shallow pan in oven to keep warm.
  2. Stir sugar, Kahlua, and vinegar in a pan on stove. Bring to a boil. Add butter. Bring to hard crack stage (300 degrees on a candy thermometer).
  3. Pour over warm popcorn and nuts, stirring to coat.
  4. Let cool.
  5. Store in airtight container. Allegedly will last several weeks. No one has shown enough self-restraint in my house to test this.

This worked exactly as stated, great directions! I used a bag of microwave popcorn since I didn't have a airpopper. There wasn't as much Kahlua flavor as I was hoping for but it was very good. Thanks for sharing.
