Candy Corn Popcorn

candy corn popcorn recipe


  • 3/8 cup popcorn kernels (doesn’t have to be exact, but I pop 3 rounds of 1/8 cup popcorn in the microwave)
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cups candy corn
  • 1 heaping tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: extra candy corn and chocolate chips to sprinkle in


  1. Heat a medium-sized pot over medium heat and add the butter.
  2. Pop the popcorn–add 1/8 cup popcorn to a paper bag, fold the top over twice and microwave for 2-3 minutes. Take the popcorn out when you can count to two between pops.
  3. Pour popcorn in a large bowl and do the next round of popping (three times total).
  4. While the popcorn is popping, add the candy corn, vanilla, brown sugar and sea salt to the butter and stir to combine as it melts.
  5. Next, pour the liquid candy corn buttery magma on top of the popcorn in the bowl.
  6. Spray a spatula or wooden spoon with cooking spray and gently stir to coat well.
  7. Pour the coated popcorn onto a greased cookie sheet and allow to cool for 30 minutes of so until set.
  8. Sprinkle with extra candy corn and chocolate chips if desired.
