Butter Toffee Heath Popcorn-this sweet popcorn is great for snacking or gift giving! Beware, it is addicting!
Halloween is on Friday and our costumes are ready! I haven’t dressed up in years, but Caleb LOVES Halloween and insisted that we all dress up. I let him pick out my costume…I must have been sleep deprived that day because I really wish I would have picked out my own costume or at least given him choices. He picked out a real winner:) Follow us on Instagram to see photos on Friday, if I don’t chicken out:)
We are going to go trick-or-treating and pass out candy. While we pass out candy, I am going to be munching on Butter Toffee Heath Popcorn. You know, because snacking on Halloween candy isn’t enough sugar for one night:)
I usually love having Josh in the kitchen with me, but not when I make Butter Toffee Heath Popcorn. He always volunteers to chop up the Heath candy bars, but I have learned that he is not chopping, he is eating them. He is no longer allowed to help with this recipe. I make him wait until the popcorn is finished to enter the kitchen:)
When the caramel corn comes out of the oven, I drizzle the pan with chocolate and stir in chopped up Heath candy bars…the ones I hide from Josh:)
The pan never lasts long at our house. We all love this sweet popcorn and eat it by the handfuls! If we don’t eat it all, I like to share with friends! This popcorn makes a great gift during the holidays so make sure you bookmark this recipe!
Popcorn is a must on Halloween and this Butter Toffee Heath Popcorn is one of our favorites! I think you should make a pan to celebrate Halloween! Or you could wait until after Halloween and use the leftover Halloween candy to make this popcorn. I hope people pass out Heath candy bars this year. Josh and I will have to fight over Caleb’s Heath bars if he gets any:)

- When the popcorn is cool, break into pieces. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Drizzle chocolate over the popcorn. Add the chopped Heath candy bars. Let the popcorn set until chocolate hardens. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
- Note-you can also stir in some peanuts or almonds.

Oh god this looks good! I’m a major popcorn, caramel corn…and candy bar fan 🙂 Heath bars are one of my faves, too! Pinned! Happy Halloween!
This looks amazingly delicious!
My husband would totally be eating more chocolate than he chopped. 🙂 This looks fantastic. I can’t wait to see what your costume is–haha!
I’m pretty sure that snacking on candy while passing it out is REQUIRED to make it a perfect Halloween night, so you’re good.
And I wouldn’t even be able to just snack on this, pretty sure it would turn into a full on meal! Pinned!
DYING over this yummy popcorn! One of my all time favorite candies!! I’m betting on your costume being something super hero related 😉
I love popcorn and I love candy, so this just makes complete sense to me!! Heath, ahhh, it’s the perfect touch.
Oh my gosh – I can’t wait to see what you dress up as, Maria! I have a costume party to go to on Saturday night and haven’t dressed up in forever. I have no clue what to be!
Looks awesome!! But…don’t Heath bars contain nuts??? (I thought they had almonds in them)
They do contain almonds but for some reason they don’t bother Josh. Weird, I know!
This is the perfect snack! I’d just let it sit out all day and snack on it!
GAH – this looks amazing! What a great snack….and let’s be real probably lunch and dinner for me too! HA!
Perfect snack!! Mmmm!
Now that’s how you do popcorn!
I can’t wait to see what he chose for you 🙂 I’m sure it will be fun none-the-less. Great popcorn recipe, you can never have too many snacks on hand!!
Hello snackage!!! I will be actioning these this weekend!! xoxo
OMG. I would not last 2 minutes in the vicinity of this popcorn. I can’t even deal with how good this looks!!!
Awesome and easy gift idea for the holidays Maria! Oh and I can’t wait to see your costume! Don’t chicken out- it’s all in fun! 🙂
Absolutely wanting this popcorn in my bowl right now!!
Can’t wait to see your costume! In the meantime, I would love a big bowl of this popcorn.
Oh, this can be dangerous for me! I can definitely seeing this popcorn being my demise because it was two of my favorite things, popcorn and toffee! Can’t wait to give this a try!
This looks so addicting!!
Wowza! That’s the way to do popcorn! What an amazing treat to be munching on!!!
I wouldn’t be able to help you in the kitchen during this recipe, either! I love heath bars…this looks great 🙂 Can’t wait to see the costume!
This looks great! Serving it in cans is such a cute idea!
I think I may have to make this for the guests we’re having over on Friday evening!!
this looks ahhhhhmazing!!! omg!
This looks amazing! How many kernels do I need to equal 12 cups of popped popcorn, with an air popper? I can’t wait to make this!
Whoa. This looks incredibly good! Heath bars are absolutely my favorite candy, so this recipe is completely tempting me to schedule a low-key movie night this weekend with a giant bowl of this popcorn resting beside me! Looks so yummy!!!
Love the presentation
holy cow – I can see this being a new favorite in the Kinnaird house
Wow, this recipe has everything that I love. Need to make this soon!
This looks amazingly Delicious!
Oh my word, I’m dying over this Maria! Reminds me of an ice cream my mother used to buy called Heath Temptation – it is positively addicting. I’m a popcorn addict so this recipe would be not last more than 5.2 seconds in my house! Love it!
This is the best of my two favorites, Heath and carmel corn! Odd question. I love my carmel corn soft and chewy. Could I not put the carmel corn in the oven and have it stay soft? (I haven’t checked in with your blog in almost a year and I am kicking myself!)
Welcome back:) It will be super soft and sticky if you don’t bake it. If you are going to eat it right away and like that texture it should be fine!
This recipe sounds so good; I know I won’t be able to stop eating it once I start.Can you use dark packed brown sugar? Should you use white or yellow corn kernels in the air popper? How many kernels equal 12 cups?
Can you use microwave popcorn?
Did you cook this on high 4-5 minutes? What temperature.
Yes, see the recipe! Boil for 4-5 minutes.
In the article you say that you put the chocolate and heath bars on when the caramel corn comes out of the oven, but in the recipe you say to wait until it cools. Does it matter? Thanks and can’t wait to make it.
I let it cool a little before adding the Heath bars…so they don’t all melt.
I make this stuff all the time! It’s super easy and highly addicting. Definitely recommend
