Yummy Caramel Corn



Caramel Corn


Four Bags Microwave Popcorn, Popped.
Or 1 cup unpopped popcorn, popped in air popper
 ( Discard all unpopped kernels )

1 -2 cups pecans, peanuts, or mixed nuts

1 cup Dried Cranberries



Spray 2 large shallow roasting pans lightly with non stick cooking spray and mix popcorn, nuts and dried cranberries. Set aside. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.




1 cup butter

2 slightly packed Cups Brown Sugar
1/2 cup white corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp Caramel flavored oil
1/2 tsp baking soda
Melt butter in a 2 quart saucepan. Add sugar, syrup and salt.


Bring to a boil and continue to cook for 5 minutes

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, caramel flavoured LorAnn Oil and baking soda.
Pour over popcorn mix and stir well. Place in oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and continue to stir as mixture cools to keep from sticking together.


These delectable treats can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container.
They are a great idea for holiday gifts.

  1. Jacque, thanks for this recipe. I have a few questions that I hope you can answer. My thanks in advance for this. First, is it light brown sugar that you use or dark? and secondly, after adding the baking soda the caramel mix becomes extrimely bubbly, do you let the bubbles diminish before mixing the syrup to the popcorn mix? Thanks a bunch. Luv Liz.

  2. Hi Liz! I used light brown sugar. I think either could be used successfully, but the coloring of the light brown is nicer.
    I stirred the mixture down after it bubbled until it looks like the caramel mixture pictured in the photo. (Very similar in consistency to peanut brittle.)
