Twix Caramel Popcorn

Jump to Recipe

Every Fall we make caramel popcorn, it is a tradition in our house. Over the weekend we were hanging out at home with the baby and watching football. I thought it was the perfect day to bust out a batch of caramel corn, so I asked Josh if he could watch the baby while I went to work. Of course, he said yes:) ย I decided to surprise him by jazzing up our traditional caramel corn recipe. This time I made Twix Caramel Popcorn. (We love Twix candy bars, remember our Twix Caramel Brownies? Oh yeah!) I knew Josh would enjoy this sweet and crunchy snack.

Twix Caramel Popcorn Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com A great sweet snack for parties, movie night, game day, or any day!

I got out our trusty air popper to pop the popcorn. I love watching the kernels pop enthusiastically into the bowl, yes, I am a nerd:) Next, I made the caramel to drizzle over the popcorn. I baked the caramel popcorn for about an hour, stirring it every 15 minutes. When the popcorn was done baking, I let it cool completely before adding the goodies.

I chopped up Twix candy bars into bite size pieces and mixed them into the caramel popcorn. I also melted chocolate chips and drizzled chocolate over the top of the candy caramel corn. Josh came upstairs and his eyes about popped out of his head. He was delighted to see my Twix Caramel Popcorn creation. I told him the chocolate needed to cool before we ate the popcorn-yeah, that didn’t go over well. He immediately started munching…so I did too:)

If you are looking for a fun way to jazz up your caramel corn, try our Twix Caramel Popcorn. It is a great sweet snack for movie night, game day, and Halloween. I am going to make a big batch during the holidays to give away as gifts. Who wouldn’t want a bag of this decadent popcorn? And the best part-it is super easy to make, but looks oh so gourmet:)

Ingredients

  • 5 quarts plain air popped popcorn
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 20 "fun size" Twix candy bars chopped
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips melted-to drizzle over popcorn

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Place popcorn in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla extract. Pour caramel in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat. Gently stir until all of the popcorn is covered.
  3. Place popcorn on two large shallow baking sheets and bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for about an hour. Remove popcorn from oven and let cool completely.
  4. Break popcorn into pieces and mix in chopped Twix candy bars. Drizzle popcorn with melted chocolate. Let the popcorn sit until chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.

  1. Holy smokes, this looks fabulous! Didn’t you say you’re already pack to pre-prego size?? How can you do that with this sinful treat around? Love it!

  2. That looks so tasty! We’re taking a big family vacation this weekend and I think this will be the perfect snack. Or I might just keep it all for myself ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Maria! I love caramel corn and your version with Twix looks divine. I have so many great memories of my mom making this every fall. And sadly enough, I think I have only tried my hand at it once!

    When all this TWD stuff is over this is going to be one of the first things I make.

  4. Wow! Sounds great. I may just have to buy some Twix for my Halloween candy this week and “accidentally” loose the bag so I can make some.

  5. Just another excuse to raid my children’s Halloween candy! Ssshhh…don’t tell, but I think the Twix candy may not look “safe” to eat when I inspect their loot this year! ๐Ÿ™‚
