Super Fast, Delicious, Easy, and Ooey Gooey Caramel Corn

Total Time

This caramel corn whips up really fast and is the perfect consistency and taste. I received it from some good friends of my parents. It always goes over well when a bunch of friends or family get together. Even though its easy, my husband requests it often. We like light corn syrup, but if you prefer a stronger flavor, use dark.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan, bring to a boil butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup.
  2. Place popped popcorn in large bowl and drizzle caramel mixture gradually over popcorn, while tossing and stirring to coat evenly.
  3. Make sure to scrape the bottom as the mixture settles.
  4. We love to serve it warm in all its ooey gooey goodness! Once you start, you can't stop.

This was so quick and easy! We made some to take to family movie night in the park! It's just plain delicious! The only comment I would make is to be sure to use the full amount of popcorn. Otherwise the caramel is too thick and the popcorn is too chewy instead of being crunchy.

Very messy but tasty. I popped 1/2 c popcorn in my air popper and it made the perfect amount. I also microwaved the caramel, first melting the butter then adding the sugars and heating more until bubbling.

So good, and so addictive!! This is the second time I've made it. This time I tossed in some peanuts and sprinkled a little kosher salt over it after the caramel was all mixed in. Oh my.... heaven!
