  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Prepare popcorn according to package directions. Pour into a serving bowl.

  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in corn syrup and brown sugar.

  4. When the sugar is dissolved, and the mixture turns a caramel color, remove from heat and pour over popped popcorn. Toss to coat well.

  5. Serve and enjoy!
