- 1/2 cup of unpopped popcorn kernels
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup of unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup of light corn syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda

- Start by popping the popcorn kernels using your preferred method. You can use an air popper, stovetop, or microwave.
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
- Stir in the sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Cook and stir until the mixture comes to a boil.
- Once it’s boiling, let it cook without stirring for about 4-5 minutes or until it reaches a rich caramel color.
- Remove the saucepan from heat and carefully stir in the baking soda and vanilla extract. The mixture will bubble up, so be cautious.
- Quickly pour the caramel sauce over the popped popcorn and gently toss to coat evenly.
- Spread the caramel-coated popcorn onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and let it cool and harden.
