Caramel mixed with popcorn, cinnamon nuts, and sea salt? Yes, please! These Salted Caramel Popcorn Bars are a delicious and easy treat you're going to want to make again and again.

Ingredients

  • 12 cups popped popcorn (1-2 bags) - I used the Skinny Pop Sea Salt Popcorn
  • 1 cup cinnamon glazed nuts** - optional
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10 caramel candies* - unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 package (10 ounces) mini marshmallows
  • 3/4 teaspoon flake sea salt

Instructions

  • Add the popcorn and cinnamon nuts to an extra-large bowl. Set aside. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray or melted butter.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. When the butter is melted, add in the caramels and water.
  • Cook while stirring with a silicone spatula until the caramels are completely melted. Add the marshmallows and continue to cook while constantly stirring. Cook until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Quickly but carefully pour the caramel over your popcorn mixture. While stirring, sprinkle in the flake sea salt. Once evenly combined, or when stirring becomes difficult, press into your greased pan. (You can spray your hands with cooking spray to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands while pressing.)
  • Let the salted caramel popcorn mixture set for 10-15 minutes or until completely cooled. Cut into bars and serve. Extras can be stored in an airtight container.

Notes

*For the caramels, you want the individual wrapped soft caramels like THESE from Kraft.
** I have a delicious homemade recipe for Cinnamon Pecans and Walnuts which you can find HERE. While I obviously recommend my homemade Cinnamon Nuts, similar seasoned or sweet glazed nuts from the store will do the trick!
