Recipe by twissis
READY IN: 20mins




  • Preheat oven to 350F & cook the microwave popcorn per pkg directions.
  • When cool enough to handle, empty popcorn into a bowl & toss a bit so any un-popped kernels will fall to the bottom of the bowl. Transfer the nicely popped corn into another bowl & discard the un-popped kernels.
  • In a sml pot over med-heat, cook the butter, brown sugar, cayenne, sea salt & corn syrup until it just begins to bubble on the sides. Remove the pot from the heat & whisk in the baking soda.
  • Slowly pour the warm caramel over the popcorn while stirring gently. Continue to stir the popcorn until well-coated.
  • Spread the caramel corn onto a lrg baking sheet. Bake for approx 8-12 min or until the caramel just begins to darken. Be sure to stir around the caramel corn once (after the 1st 6 min or so of baking).
  • Let cool to just about room temperature Break up any clusters & enjoy!
  • NOTE: On-line reviewers suggested they would increase the cayenne & I suspect the cayenne/sea salt combo could be replaced by a Cajun seasoning blend as another option, but those are decisions you will have to make.
