sea salt & maple caramel corn

If you follow me on instagram, you'll know I'm pretty obsessed with candles, and some of my favorites are from the Bath & Body Works Fall Collection, including SEA SALT & MAPLE POPCORN. After being inspired by the amazing scent of the candle, I ventured to create my own coordinating recipe. I used a basic caramel corn base and added in maple syrup for extra flavor and finished it with some coarse sea salt. I'm going to be honest when I say that I could have eaten the entire bowl of it, but fortunately I had guests over so I didn't couldn't. 

This popcorn can be made in less than 15 minutes and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for any occasion. I recommend lighting your favorite pumpkin candle, curling up with a big quilt on the couch and enjoying each and every munch and crunch in complete & total silence. Or at least, as a Stay at Home Mama of a busy+noisy toddler, that is what my dreams are made of.


what you'll need //

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter [half a stick]
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 cups popcorn popped OR an air popper & popping corn
1/4 cup real maple syrup + more to add as desired
1-2 TSP coarse sea salt for finishing

what you'll do //

» begin by popping your popcorn in an air popper and set aside if you haven't already done so
» in a large dutch oven, heat butter, brown sugar & corn syrup over medium heat, stirring constantly 
» add 1/2 tsp salt
» add 1/4 cup real maple syrup and stir to combine; give it a taste & add more as desired for a strong maple flavor [add in 1 TBSP at a time & continue to taste]
» pour your popcorn into the dutch oven and coat it well in the caramel-maple mixture
» finish with coarse sea salt as desired

» serve warm & enjoy; it will be sticky and chewy at first and then harder + crunchier after sitting 1-2 hours; I love it chewy while it's still warm but you can certainly prepare it earlier in the day and spread it out on a baking sheet to harden if you want a crunchier texture later that night!



  1. I think this recipe was made for me! I LOVE anything with sea salt and regularly buy 3 bottles of maple syrup every single time I go grocery shopping.

  2. That looks amazing. Might have to try this over the weekend.. okay definitely will.
