Gooey Carmel Popcorn


Ever since my husband and I devoured some soft carmel corn, we’ve been on the hunt for the missing recipe.  I found this recipe on and was pleased with the outcome.  Although it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, it did stay gooey and soft and all of our company loved it– they convinced me I needed to keep the recipe.   This recipe makes 8 servings.

2.  Remove all the kernels from your popcorn.

I do this by transferring the popcorn from one bowl to another by hand.

3.  Melt butter and brown sugar together in saucepan.
