I had some sweetened condensed milk to use up about the same time I stumbled across this popcorn recipe.

I was doomed.
But it was so worth it.

It’s quicker than my caramel corn recipe and produces a gooey, sticky treat that everyone loves.  Just make sure you keep a close eye on any children who stick their hands in the popcorn or you’ll have tacky fingerprints everywhere they can reach.



1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 stick butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
6 quarts popped popcorn, lightly salted (the original recipe calls for microwaved popcorn but for the sake of all that is good, use stove popped corn.  Here’s help if you need it).


Bring the brown sugar, corn syrup and butter to a boil.  Reduce to medium heat and add the sweetened condensed milk, stirring constantly for about five minutes to avoid scorching (the less time you cook it, the stickier and softer it will be).


Pour over the popcorn and mix until it’s covered evenly.  Allow to cool and enjoy!


 And don’t forget to brush your teeth!

A B-I-G thank you to The Girl Who Ate Everything for bringing this delicious and simple recipe to my attention so I could indulge my popcorn obsession in new ways.
