It's Caramel Popcorn Day (With Recipe)

Disclosure: Post contains affiliate links

Greetings and welcome to Aunt Cie's Attic. I hope you didn't come here looking for tips on how to become more organized, because if that was your goal, you can consider it a lost cause. Organization is not my strong suit, but sometimes I pull some inspiring ideas out of my hat or an old box that I'm going through.

Today is Caramel Popcorn Day. I love caramel popcorn, even though I hate the way the hard outside of the corn has a tendency to get stuck between my back teeth. Sadly, I have no popcorn, caramel or otherwise, at my house, but I've found a recipe for you in case you have popcorn and the ingredients to make a nice caramel honey topping. This recipe comes to us courtesy of Australia's Best Recipes.


  • 1/2 cup popcorn cooked
  • 60 g butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp honey


  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the butter, honey and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to boil for 4 minutes or until the mixture is a caramel colour, stirring occasionally. Be careful as the caramel will be very hot.
I would think you could also use the topping for ice cream or fruit, cake, pancakes, all sorts of things.

You could also customize it by adding different flavorings. The Watkins Company has a full line-up of all-natural extracts which work beautifully in baking, candy, syrups, whatever you can imagine. These extracts are not sold in stores, but they are no more expensive than the ones you can purchase from the store, and they are of superior quality. You can buy them from my Watkins page, (the link to the catalog is in the upper right-hand corner) or you can sign up to become a consultant yourself. Through April, fee to become a Watkins consultant is just $14.95 (normally 29.95).

You can use your membership simply to get Watkins products at a discount for yourself, and no-one will ever pester you to meet sales quotas or participate in events or recruit other members. I initially signed up just to get discounts on my own products, but when I saw all the simple tools provided with the membership fee, I felt that I could easily promote Watkins to others. I am an extremely shy person, hardly the sort who could sell ice at the North Pole, so to speak. However, I think that Watkins sells itself, and if you are a bit of a bolder sort than I am, you might really be able to make this opportunity work for you. Plus, it's much more pleasant than selling ice at the North Pole.

Although I sadly do not have any popcorn, I think I may try my hand at making this sauce and pour it over an apple crisp. I think I will add a bit of Watkins butter vanilla (my favorite extract) for a special twist!

Cheers from your ornery old Aunt Cie
