Carmel Corn! So simple and delicious. The perfect holiday treat that everyone will love!



  • 4 cups butter
  • 4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 cups light corn syrup
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 bags Puff Corn popcorn


  1. Preheat the oven to 250°F. Place Puff Corn in a deep roasting pan.
  2. Bring the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup to a boil. Add the baking soda – the mixture will foam. Stir well and remove from heat.
  3. Pour over Puff Corn in roasting pan, stir, and transfer to the oven. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
  4. Spread on wax paper or foil until the caramel corn is cool and crispy.


I would recommend making half at a time (i.e. 2 cups butter, 2 cups brown sugar instead of the whole 4 cups) because otherwise it gets a little overwhelming and it’s harder to control the consistency of the caramel.
