  • 1 pot
  • baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Oven


  • 1/4 cup mushroom popcorn kernels
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 12 Werther’s Original soft caramels
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


  • First, line a baking sheet and parchment paper and set it aside. You will need it to spread the popcorn kernels on it in an even layer.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the coconut oil. Once the oil is melted and hot, add the Werther’s Original caramels to the pan and stir until they are melted.
  • Add in the butter, stirring until it has melted. Then add the light brown sugar and baking soda, stirring until all ingredients are combined.
  • Once the caramel mixture is ready, pour it over the popcorn kernels and spread them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool.



  • For extra crunch, add some finely chopped pecans or almonds to the popcorn when baking.
  • To make sure the caramel coats the popcorn evenly and adheres nicely, use a rubber spatula for stirring after adding the caramel mixture.
  • If you’d like to sweeten your Werther’s popcorn even more, drizzle melted white chocolate over the cooled popcorn before serving.
