Homemade Caramel Popcorn

I am not a super huge fan of corn syrup.  Which is why I was bummed when I found so many recipes available for homemade caramel popcorn using corn syrup.  img_0592

My son really likes caramel popcorn and for his birthday I was wanting to make him some for movie night!  I was already making my Movie Night Chocolate Chex Mix and had half a can of sweetened condensed milk left over.  Well I started thinking sweetened condensed milk already tastes a lot like caramel all on it’s own.  So I decided to experiment a little!


popped popcorn

1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup butter

1 tsp vanilla


img_0593In a microwave safe bowl add butter, brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla.  I microwaved for 30 seconds and took it out and stirred.  I did that about 3 times.  It should be nice and smooth!  Be sure not to leave it in the microwave for too long or it will overflow!!!  ( That happened to me!!)

Then pour over your popped popcorn and enjoy!!!
