Salted Caramel Popcorn

A delectable sweet-and-salty popcorn that makes for a perfect movie-night treat.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, mix popcorn kernels and oil with a wooden spoon. Cover and place over medium heat until kernels start to pop.
  3. Swirl saucepan regularly without removing the lid. When the popping rate starts to slow down, remove saucepan from heat. Wait until all the kernels have popped, then transfer to a large bowl. Throw out any unpopped kernels. Set aside.


Salted Caramel
  1. In the still-warm saucepan, mix sugar, butter, water and salt. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on high heat, until caramel is amber-coloured.
  2. Remove saucepan from heat, then slowly add milk. Return to heat for 2 minutes, stirring until milk is completely absorbed, then remove from heat.
  3. Pour popcorn onto caramel, stirring with a wooden spoon to coat popcorn evenly.
  4. Spread the popcorn onto the cookie sheet, making sure that the pieces aren’t stacked on top of each other. Watching closely, bake for 6 minutes or until dark golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool to room temperature. Pour into a large bowl, breaking apart any clumps, and serve.
