Caramel Corn Puffs ~ No Needlework Necessary!

Holiday treat recipes, or recipes of any kind for that matter, are not the usual fare here at Hooked On Needles. But sometimes something of the non-needlework sort comes along that is just too good not to share! This caramel corn puff recipe is just one of those things! Take a look at this deliciousness...

Have you ever seen anything so golden and scrumptious looking?

Sweet and crunchy, light and buttery, and very hard to resist!

Here's the recipe, so you can give it a try, maybe for your Super Bowl party or next family game night or other fun get together.

Caramel Corn Puffs

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light Karo syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 - 7 or 8 ounce bag corn puffs, plain or butter flavored (Think Cheetos Puffs or Pirate's Booty, only not cheese flavored. My local grocery store has a store brand. Yours probably does too.)

Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Spray a large roasting pan with non-stick spray. Dump bag of corn puffs into pan. In a large saucepan, melt butter, brown sugar and Karo. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat, then add 1 teaspoon baking soda and mix well. It will foam up and increase in volume. Quickly pour over corn puffs and mix well so all puffs are covered in caramel. Spread out caramel covered puffs evenly in the pan.

Bake at 225 degrees for one hour. Stir every 10 minutes. Spread out on waxed paper and separate the puffs from each other while they are still warm. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container...or just eat them all!

Coming up soon, I'll share with you my progress on the entrelac knitting project you've already seen HERE, and the beginning of my return to sewing with velvet and embroidering Celtic designs on Irish step dancing dresses!

Happy Stitching!

  • Wow Mary Grace! This is not a recipe I could have imagined but it sounds delish. I love sweet and salty. However, I will have to save it for a special occasion because I've enjoyed too many goodies over the last month and a half. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  • I make this all the time but I do mine in a paper bag in the microwave. Takes about 5 minutes total. Everyone always asked me to bring it for snack when we get together.
