Tammy's Caramel Popcorn

I am a huge fan of caramel popcorn... actually anything with caramel is good. This is Tammy Merryweather's recipe for caramel popcorn and I L O V E it! I made this today for a gathering and it was pretty easy with simple ingredients. This is in the ward cook book on page 106 for those of you who have it.

1 C light corn syrup
1 square (1/2 c) butter
1 lb brown sugar
1 can condensed milk

Mix all ingredients except the condensed milk in a heavy sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Gradually add condensed milk. Cook, stirring constantly, to a soft ball (about 227 degree on a candy thermometer.) Pour over a large bowl of popped popcorn. (I used two bags of microwave popcorn) Stir and spread out on buttered pan to dry.


  1. I do know that Tammy says it MUST be butter - do not use margarine as a substitute. I LOVE this stuff!

  2. I made this on Friday and it didn't last the weekend. We loved it.
