Chocolate Covered Caramel Corn

This stuff is addicting. I have no problems eating popcorn and then stopping after a reasonable amount has been consumed. However, you give me some of this stuff? Oh mercy.

This recipe was found in a cookbook that my previous church put together. Thank you Donna for the recipe for caramel corn. I just took it one step further. I tend to do that. I can’t stop myself. It’s the addictive part of my personality.

For those of you that think you may recognize this recipe, you are right. I give it as a gift at Christmas to Sunday School teachers! Now you all can make your own (and I have to think of something else to give)! Enjoy!

Yield: 12 servings

Chocolate Covered Caramel Corn

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes

The most delicious Caramel Corn topped with white chocolate


  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 bags of popped corn, REMOVE SEEDS
  • 16 oz. package white almond bark


  1. Pan melt butter, stir in sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in baking soda and vanilla. Gradually pour over popped corn. Mix well. I use two broiler pans, but the disposable lasagna foil pans would work well too.
  2. Bake at 250 degrees for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Break apart and store in covered containers. To go the extra mile, melt the white bark completely, pour over cooled caramel corn. Lay out on wax paper to cool. Store in airtight Ziploc or tupperware containers.

  7. Oh my goodness. It’s one in the morning, and I should be going to bed, but instead I’m looking at your delicious food and my stomach is grumbling – there is seriously NOTHING better than, oh, I don’t know – ANYTHING with popcorn! I (surprisingly!) have all the ingredients for this, and will totally be making it in the morning!

  8. This is the kind of treat that I simply cannot have in the house because I’ll eat it all myself in one sitting! Yum!

  9. Just found your site! I’ve been wanting to do this for so long, but was too afraid to just go for it! My boys were in Boy Scouts and sold popcorn before Christmas every year. They sold chocolate covered caramel popcorn. I’ve been an addict since then! lol.. But I haven’t been able to find anyone that is still in to see if they still sell that or not.. So you’ve just saved me from drowning my sorrows yet again this year, in plain ol’ caramel corn.. o the sorrows I’ve lived! lol… And forget waiting for Christmas!! I’m making this tomorrow!!
