Salted Caramel Popcorn


  • Popcorn (already popped)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup cream
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt


Place sugar and water in a saucepan and boil until it forms a deep amber colour (do not stir).

Once the sugar mixture has started turning an amber colour, quickly remove the saucepan from the heat and add the butter. Stir well.

Put the saucepan back on the heat and stir. Slowly add the cream while stirring (it will bubble up) and allow the sauce to boil for a few minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and salt.

Pour the salted caramel over the popcorn and mix well.

Pour the caramel popcorn onto a lined baking sheet and spread well. Bake for 30 minutes at 150ºC.
