Ute Caramel Confession Corn


  • 4 quarts popcorn popped (or two bags of microwaved popcorn)

Caramel :

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup lite Karo syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt—- add only if you are using unsalted popcorn
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Mix caramel ingredients in a medium microwave proof bowl. Place in microwave 1 1/2 minutes on high. Remove and stir. Microwave 1 1/2 minute more. Remove from microwave and add 1 teaspoon baking soda, stir. Pour over popcorn in large bowl, toss caramel and popcorn until popcorn is coated.

Recipe Notes

-I cooked this on the stove instead of the microwave. Just melted the butter, then added everything else (except soda) and boiled for 2-3 minutes. Then added soda and tossed with popcorn.

-After following directions you may spread the mixture on two greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Stir at 5 minutes. This made a yummy crunchy caramel corn.

  1. Si, I love how you are compelled to add extra steps because using the microwave is way too easy. And then you're naturally going to want to supplement that with the additional steps of spreading it on a greased cookie sheet. No wait, TWO cookie sheets! And then baking it in the oven.

    How cute are you?
