Classic Caramel Corn

I can't make this very often because I will literally munch on the entire thing until it is ALL gone!!! So I usually make it and then bag it up to give away to friends!

I found this recipe over at but of course I had to read the reviews and then make some changes. Here it is:

I didn't calculate the exact points (frankly because I really don't want to know!) but I've found that around 1 cup is about 3 Weight Watcher points.


1 cup unpopped popcorn

1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
12 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1. Pop popcorn and distribute into 2 - 9x13 pans.
2. Mix sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat stirring until it starts to boil.
3. Let it cook for 5 minutes without stirring.
4. Remove from heat and add baking soda and vanilla.
5. Pour over popcorn and stir around.
6. If you like it chewy - eat it now.
7. If you like it crunchy - bake for 25 - 30 minutes in the oven stirring every 10 minutes.
8. Remove from pan and let cool.

  1. LOVE caramel corn. I'm definitely a "chewy" girl though, for sure. This is very similar to my favorite recipe ever...yum!!
