Halloween Popcorn uses Nellie’s “Better Than Caramel Popcorn” recipe to create this fun & festive snack! If your kids are anything like mine, they are always begging for popcorn when they watch a movie, and it’s fun to have different versions to mix things up! There’s no better treat to munch on while snuggled under a blanket watching a movie than the perfect salty/sweet combo you can find in popcorn recipes like this one! The recipe is so simple and I love the sweet, buttery candy that coats the popcorn.  Add in whatever Halloween treats you’d like- candy corn was amazing in this, as were the M&M’s. The kids loved the gummy worms, of course! Enjoy!

Halloween Popcorn

  • 2 packages microwave popcorn, popped (about 9 cups popcorn)/ 1/3 cup unpopped kernels
  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 or 4 different types of Halloween themed candy
  1. Pop your popcorn and remove any un-popped kernels. Put popcorn in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine the butter, sugar and whipping cream in a medium saucepan.** Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil for about 5 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Pour over popcorn and stir to combine.
  4. Add in Halloween candy- our favorites were candy corn and M&M’s- and stir to combine. It’s best when served immediately.

**I’ve also made this in the microwave. Combine butter, sugar & whipping cream in a large glass bowl. Microwave for 2.5 minutes, stir, then for an additional 2 minutes. Pour over popcorn.

  1. Hi Jessica: I found your recipe on Pinterest and cannot wait to make it for the kids. I do have one question. My niece and nephew are allergic to dairy. I am going to use vegan butter. Do you have any suggestions for a substitute I can use in place of the heavy whipping cream?
    • I'm not vegan so I don't do a lot of experimenting with those restrictions, but I did find this: http://www.godairyfree.org/dairy-substitutes/how-to-substitute-cream Hope it helps!!
