Caramel Corn

(from katvn’s recipe box)

A childhood favorite

Source: Aunt Jacque (from RecipeThing user JulieW8)


  • 3/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 c white corn syrup
  • 3/4 c white sugar (or may use all brown sugar)
  • 1/4 c water
  • 1/8 t cream tartar
  • 1/4 c butter
  • Popped popcorn


  1. Put all ingredients except popcorn into a heavy duty saucepan. Cook to soft ball stage.

  2. Pour over popped corn. I can’t tell you how much – the recipe says “3 poppers.” If I have to guess, I’d say probably 10 cups of popped popcorn – I remember this making a LOT of caramel corn.

  3. Mix well.

  4. Spread onto waxed paper to cool.
