You can make this delicious popcorn in under 20 minutes and enjoy while watching your favourite movie late at night. It can keep for 3 days.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 Cup Popped Corn (in butter or olive oil)
  • 1 Cup Brown sugar loosely packed
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp Coffee extract
  • Pinch of Sea salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees. Follow the instructions on the packet on how to pop the corn. Once popped lay out on 2 baking sheets lined with baking paper.
  2. Add brown sugar, pinch of sea salt and water to a small saucepan, stir until sugar is dissolved and let it come to the boiling point, add vanilla and coffee extract, stir and turn off heat immediately. Let cool for 2 minutes.
  3. Being careful, use a large spoon to drizzle syrup evenly on popcorn. Bake in centre shelf of oven for 10 minutes. Let them cool on rack for 5 minutes or cool enough to handle by hand, break up the lumps. Enjoy!


Have you noticed how expensive the so-called gourmet popcorns are nowadays? Either they are too salty or not to your taste. This is the answer - easy, quick and low cost to make, and best of all you know what's in it (no chemicals). Adjust the level of sweetness or saltiness as you like. The vanilla coffee flavour can be changed to anything you fancy.

  • Um no way. I love salted popcorn and I love my coffee separately. This doesn’t sound very tempting to me. I’ll pass thanks all the same


  • Not a good idea for me !!!! How would you stop?


  • Oh yum, delicious.


  • What a great recipe and combination of flavours this popcorn would be lovely


  • I love sweet popcorn


  • Really love this idea, thanks for the recipe.


  • Scrolling the page and saw this, thought sounds like heaven for my housemate. She loves all these so mixed together flavour bursting out the sides, so to speak.


  • My sister loves salted caramel – this recipe looks like fun!


  • Thank you for this recipe – I am in love with this recipe as I love popcorn, caramel and coffee.

    • Enjoy!
      We have made this many times over for the girls movie night, and it’s the most popular one to share.


  • O.K. I would skip the coffee but otherwise delicious!


  • Perfect flavoured snack for us mums/parents. The flavour combination is great.

    • Yep – we need good snacks too for those special nights!


  • More of an adult one, with coffee in it


  • Always looking for different ways to change the flavour of pop corn. Hate the butter ones. This looks interesting,


  • Home-made is always better,love the flavours and ready for our next d.v.d!


  • oh wow, we have a little popcorn maker in the cupboard, best bring it out and dust it off!

    • Please, do. You will make it faster than I am.
      I don’t have a popcorn maker or a microwave oven, so I pop my corns in a large pot.
      Bottom line: we have the control of the fat, sugar and the spices; and we save a lot of money instead of buying the packaged gourmet popcorn :)
