  • 1 - 3.5 oz. bag of microwave popcorn plain or very light butter
  • 6 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/3 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt


  1. Prepare microwave popcorn according to package instructions.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, stirring occasionally, until it foams and browns, taking on a caramel-like color and a nutty fragrance.
  3. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Whisk until thoroughly combined, and continue cooking until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.
  4. Toss with popcorn.
  5. Sprinkle popcorn with sea salt. Enjoy!
