Recipe type: Dessert

Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 2½ cups brown sugar
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup Karo syrup (light corn syrup)
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup of UN-popped popcorn
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups halloween colored M&M's
  • ½ cup brown and orange mini M&M's, if desired
  1. Pop your popcorn in an air popper machine. (I had to do two batches)
  2. Cook the brown sugar, Karo syrup, and ½ cup of butter over the stove on medium high heat and bring to a boil.
  3. Add the sweetened condensed milk.
  4. Stir continually for about 3 to 4 minutes until it gets to the soft ball stage (it clings together when you drop some in cold water).
  5. It will burn if you cook it too long, so make sure you are stirring continuously and watch it closely.
  6. When it is finished cooking, take your pot off the stove and pour the caramel sauce over your air popped popcorn.
  7. Mix until all the popcorn is completely coated.
  8. You will need a very large bowl to mix it all together.
  9. Toss in M&M's and allow to cool and set.
  10. Or form mini popcorn balls while still warm, adding M&M's at after ball is formed, set on parchment paper, allow to set.
  11. Enjoy!
