Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • ¼ Cups Water
  • Cups Cookie Butter
  • 8 Cups Popped Popcorn
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher Salt optional

Instructions

  • Combine Sugar and Water in a saucepan over high heat. Whisk frequently until golden brown. *Sugar will move through the stages. It will get foamy, then crystallize, then melt and turn golden.
  • Turn off heat, but do not remove pot from the burner. Quickly whisk in the Cookie Butter. *You don’t want to wait until the caramel is dark to do this. It will darken a bit as you are adding in the cookie butter. When you whisk in the cookie butter, there is a chance the whole mixture will seize. Don’t panic. It just means that the mixture cooled a bit, moving back to the crystallized stage.
  • Turn high heat back on and whisk continuously until mixture is smooth and creamy. *If the mixture seized, you will melt it back into a nice caramel here. If it did not, then this stage is only a few seconds on high heat to get the cookie butter fully emulsified.
  • Turn off flame and again do NOT remove pan from burner. Add the popcorn into the pan all at once. Quickly stir to coat completely. *Be very, very careful not to get hot sugar on yourself at any point. It will burn you immediately.
  • Then immediately spread onto a sheet pan covered with parchment. Spread it into a single layer. Hit it with a sprinkling of salt if desired. Allow to cool completely before you touch it.
