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.
