FOOD FUN: Halloween Caramel Corn Cookies

These cookies from, packed with popcorn and candy corn, inspired us to make something much simpler: caramel corn mixed with candy corn and almonds. If that sounds too sweet for you, mix the candy corn and almonds with plain popcorn.

This caramel corn recipe is adapted from a base recipe from Golden Blossom Honey. You can also substitute maple syrup or the lower-glycemic agave nectar. (If you use agave, try half a cup, as it‘s much sweeter than honey or maple syrup.)


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup dark corn syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
