Sweet and Salty Corn Pops

If I make these I simply can not stop eating them.


I could have just eaten a four course dinner, with dessert, and a roll and I would still want to eat these.

I think my family feels the same way.  We all love a good snack and these did not last long when I made them for Super Bowl Sunday.  In fact, we were all hovering over the bowl like vultures trying to make sure no one was taking more than their share.

Hmmm.  Maybe I should give everyone their own bowl next time.

Sweet and Salty Corn Pops


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tblsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 bag Corn Pops (6-7 oz) found in the chip aisle
  • cinnamon to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 225°
  2. Pour the corn pops into a large bowl.
  3. In a medium saucepan bring the butter, sugar, and water to a boil. Boil for 3 1/2 minutes. Stop just as it turns brown and is caramelizing.
  4. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
  5. Pour mixture over the corn pops, tossing until thoroughly coated. Pour onto a baking sheet and spread out evenly.
  6. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool slightly and serve.

    My mother in law makes something similar to these, and I’ve always wanted to make some. I don’t think hers has cinnamon though, and I love that yours does!!

  3. Don’t laugh, Krista, but I didn’t have the slightest clue how these awesome treats were made … (blushing) … thanks for this recipe, my hubby will be sooooo happy now =))

      Knowing how easy they are is such a bad thing…but it’s so fun being bad! The batch I made to “shoot” was gone before mr got home so it was his special request for Superbowl. I’m sure yours will be as happy as mine!

  5. These sound so good. I think these will be my “snack to share” at an upcoming women’s retreat. I’m so glad you shared them. Thanks!!!
