  1. Pop popcorn in an air popper according to manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Combine sugar, corn syrup, butter, and water in a heavy saucepan over medium heat; cook until toffee syrup temperature reaches 280 degrees F (138 degrees C) using a candy thermometer, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  3. Mix toffee syrup with popcorn in a large bowl until evenly combined.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I prefer Mexican vanilla extract, but traditional works well too.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

We are popcorn lovers in our family, so I liked this popcorn. It is similar to a popcorn ball and it was eaten up in minutes. I was expecting a toffee taste, but I think brown sugar would need...

I love this recipe! Great job! I added a little red food coloring to make it Pink for Valentine's Day and the texture of the butter toffee popcorn was just right... in fact I couldn't stop 'tast...

I will try again. I was expecting toffee flavor. Maybe I will use brown sugar next time

Wow! I love this it is sooooooo good! Didn't use a candy thermometer so I just did 10 minutes and it turned out fine

It was delicious!
