Sweet Butter Popcorn

    25 min

    This is a deliciously sweet and buttery snack. Popcorn is coated in a warm mixture of sweetened butter, then allowed to cool before consuming. Be warned - this stuff is addictive!

    My older sister used to make this for us as kids. Be sure to add a couple drops of food coloring to the syrup before you mix it with the popcorn. The kids will love it.  -  10 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was exactly what I was looking for: cheap, easy and simple. My kids thought it was very yummy. Like other readers I did 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. I also added a half teaspoon vanilla after the 4 minutes of cooking, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, (because I used plain popcorn. I will definitely make this recipe again.  -  14 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
