Here’s an enhanced version of the recipe for Omgosh! Soft Caramel Popcorn:


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cups popped popcorn (about 1/2 cup unpopped kernels)


  1. Prepare Popcorn:
    • Pop the popcorn using your preferred method, whether it’s air-popped or stove-popped. Remove any un-popped kernels and set the popped popcorn aside in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Make the Caramel Sauce:
    • In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Heat on Medium:
    • Place the saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Stir continuously to ensure the ingredients combine well.
  4. Melt and Combine:
    • Allow the mixture to melt and come to a gentle boil. Continue stirring to prevent burning or sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  5. Optional: Add Vanilla and Salt:
    • If desired, add vanilla extract for extra flavor and salt to balance the sweetness. Stir well to incorporate these ingredients into the caramel.
  6. Monitor Consistency:
    • Keep a close eye on the mixture, ensuring it doesn’t overcook. The caramel should become smooth and slightly thickened.
  7. Remove from Heat:
    • Once the caramel has reached a smooth consistency, remove the saucepan from heat.
  8. Pour Over Popcorn:
    • Immediately pour the warm caramel sauce over the popped popcorn in the mixing bowl. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to gently fold and coat the popcorn evenly with the caramel.
  9. Cool and Enjoy:
    • Allow the caramel-coated popcorn to cool for a few minutes before serving. This will allow the caramel to set slightly. Break apart any large clumps and enjoy your delicious Omgosh! Soft Caramel Popcorn.
  10. Store:
  • Store any leftover caramel popcorn in an airtight container to maintain freshness.
