Bowl of Puffed Caramel Corn


Puffed Caramel Corn is the most addictive snack ever! Perfectly combining salty and sweet, you will be obsessed with this easy twist on caramel corn!


  • 7 – ounce bag of buttered corn puffs (I used 2, 3.25- ounce bags of Chester’s Butter flavored Puffcorn)
  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Preheat oven to 250°F. Line an extra large (15×21) baking sheet (with sides) with parchment paper. Set aside. If you don’t have an XL baking sheet use 2 smaller baking sheets.
  2. Place the puffed corn in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan, heat the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup over medium heat, until mixture reaches a boil, stirring frequently. Allow the mixture to boil for 2 minutes and then remove from the heat.
  4. Immediately stir in the baking soda until combined. Mixture will foam up.
  5. Pour the caramel sauce on top of the puffed corn, stirring to coat evenly.
  6. Spread the puffed corn onto the prepared sheet evenly. Bake for 50 minutes or until crunchy, stirring every 10 minutes.
  7. Spread on a parchment-lined counter, breaking apart any large pieces.
  8. Cool completely.


Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.
