Salted Caramel Popcorn

With Halloween knocking on the door I have been occupied with trying out some new treats. Although Iris is found of eating any sweets that comes her way I prefer that she eats homemade treats. That way I minimize her intake of different additives and other not so nice stuff. But the days when fruit passed as candy is long gone and that means I have to endeavour a bit more to get her excited. These salted caramel popcorns are so good! The combination of sweet caramel, salt and crispness is unbeatable and will leave you wishing for more. I believe they are a perfect Saturday night treat or why not divided in small bags for a birthday party. Of course Iris is not the only one in this family that enjoys her popcorn covered in sweet and salty caramel. By the time Iris came around eating them they were almost finished! There are many recipes out there for how to make them but I can honestly say this is one of the best. This recipe leaves the popcorn very crisp with just the right amount of sweetness and salt. Just the way you will like it!

Salted Caramel Popcorn


1 dl / 0.5 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tbsp butter
2 l / 8.5 cup popcorn ( already popped )
salt after taste


Heat a pan with enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Put the kernels inside the pan and put the lid on. It will take a few minutes until they start popping. Once they are finished you remove the pan from the heat and add salt after taste. Now put the sugar in a frying pan and heat it while stirring carefully until all the sugar has melted. Use medium heat since you don’t want to burn the sugar. You then add the butter and remove the pan from the heat at the same time as stirring. When the butter is well blended with the melted sugar you add the popcorns and toss them around until all of them are covered in caramel. Pour them out on a tray covered in baking paper and let them cool for a few minutes. Enjoy!
