Caramel Corn Pops

These caramel corn pops would be a great addition to any super bowl party. Who isn’t a fan of caramel popcorn? I definitely am.

This is a fun recipe because it uses corn pops. No, not the cereal, these babies are found on the potato chip aisle. Barrel O’ Fun happens to be the brand that I get here in Utah. I like this caramel coating for this because it stays soft, chewy, and gooey. The bag of corn pops usually has a recipe on it but it’s more of a crunchy coating.

You can also use corn pops or kettle pops. I’ve prefer the kettle pops, but sometimes they can be hard to find. I think they work good because they have a coating already on them so as this gooey caramel sits on the kettle pops they don’t get completely soggy. That way if you don’t eat it all the day you make it, it won’t turn into a gooey, soggy mess. One advantage to the corn pops/ kettle pops instead of regular popcorn is you don’t kernels stuck in you teeth!

  2. This is a wonderful recipe, I make it for my kids, it was something my husband grew up on. Yes the bag Corn Curls (pops) or Kettle Pops are HULL less, so no choking on Hulls. It tastes like popcorn but safer to eat! I buy it at Dick’s, Macy’s Fres Market just to name a few local places by me! =0)

  3. hmm… I’ve never heard of corn pops or kettle pops, I’ll have to look for them the next time I’m in the store. I’ve probably never seen them because I hardly ever go down the chip isle. lol.

  7. That sounds delicious. I especially like the part about it not getting stuck in your teeth – that’s always so annoying!
