Caramel Puffcorn



I had a taste of this recipe while taking care of an elderly couple. I think I ate the whole bag! Of course I had to have the recipe. It is delicious to bring along to a get together and so easy to make! Easy to do for a snack at the last minute too. On this batch I had extra sugar melted in the box so I added some almonds and microwaved them in the same manner (but only 2x) They were a great addition!

How to Make Caramel Puffcorn


  1. In a large glass measuring cup(at least 4 cups) put sugars and butter.
  2. Microwave for 3 minutes, stirring half way through.
  3. Stir in Baking soda until it expands, foams and turns a lighter color. Pour over puff corn in a paper bag or cardboard box that fits in your microwave. Shake!
  4. Microwave 45 seconds, remove and shake!
  5. Repeat 2 more times and pour out onto freezer paper. Be careful--it is HOT!
  6. Break apart a bit with the spatula and let it cool. Then you can break it apart a bit more.
  7. CAUTION!!! While breaking apart the cool clusters, DO NOT TASTE! (you will eat the while batch and have to start over!)
