Sweet and Savoury Popcorn

Sweet and Savoury Popcorn

As a family favourite, I used to make this caramel popcorn recipe for all of my cousins at Christmas time, it generally never made it past the front door!


  • 8 cups Popped corn for each recipe
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3 tbsp dark corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp each: paprika, cinnamon, chili powder, garlic salt, onion salt, cayenne powder, sea salt
  • 3 tbsp melted butter


  1. For the spiced popcorn, mix all the spices in a bowl (paprika, cinnamon, chili powder, garlic salt, onion salt, cayenne powder, sea salt)
  2. Add melted butter to popcorn and toss with spices to taste then serve!
  3. For the caramel popcorn pre-heat the oven to 350 F
  4. In a medium saucepan measure the butter, corn syrup and brown sugar and set over medium heat and stir until the butter melts
  5. While sugar is simmering, measure out baking soda and salt
  6. Boil sugar mix for about 5 minutes until bubbles are slower and bigger
  7. Remove from heat - then slowly add salt and baking soda, make sure you are careful, the mixture will bubble up because of the reaction with the baking soda
  8. Add the vanilla, stir then add to your popcorn and mix quickly
  9. Spread evenly on a baking tray (you might need two)
  10. Bake for 10-12 minutes (make sure to watch your popcorn so it doesn't burn, it should be golden and clear caramel, when it starts to get darker in colour it is over baking
  11. Let cool for 5 minutes then break into pieces in a serving bowl
  12. The try...to stop eating it!


Mix some of the spiced popcorn to the caramel popcorn for bursts of flavour in every bite!
