Butter Caramel Popcorn Recipe


  • 1 C Butter
  • 1 1/3 C Sugar
  • 1/2 C Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 TBS Vanilla
  • Popcorn Kernels
  • Wax Paper


  • Air pop two batches of popcorn

Caramel Sauce

  • Combine all ingredients, except vanilla, in a pan.
  • Bring sauce to boil on medium heat. Boil 5 to 7 minutes stirring constantly. (The longer you boil the sauce the harder it will dry. We like it a little sticky at my house so we usually go between 5 – 6 minutes.)
  • Add vanilla and stir to combine. 
  • Pour sauce over the popcorn. Stir and mix well.
  • Lay a couple of long pieces of wax paper on your table or counter and spread the popcorn out so it can cool. Let it cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Break into pieces and enjoy! You can store leftovers in an air-tight container.
