Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 gallon popped popcorn (I measure by a gallon ice cream container)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 12 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 teaspoon salt


  1. Measure out 1 gallon of popped popcorn and lay out on wax paper.
  2. Melt butter, sugar, and water on stove until temperature reaches 245°F (about 5 minute after it starts boiling).
  3. Remove from heat and add salt and vanilla.
  4. At this point you can add food coloring to make it colorful!
  5. Pour mixture over popped popcorn and stir occasionally until completely cooled.
  6. ENJOY!
