  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • 7oz Like Air Cinnamon Bun Puffcorn


  1. In a large pot over medium heat, add butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup. Melt, stirring constantly, until well combined and boiling. Once boiling, turn down to a medium low heat and allow to boil undisturbed for 3 minutes.
  2. While mixture is boiling, grease a large roasting pan and add the puffcorn.
  3. After the 3 minutes of boiling, remove the caramel mixture from the heat and stir in cinnamon, vanilla, and baking soda. This mixture will foam up quite a bit from the baking soda, so make sure you have a large enough pot to allow the mixture to almost double in height.
  4. Pour the caramel mixture over the puffcorn and stir to coat evenly. Bake in a 250° oven for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Once baked, pour onto a waxed paper lined and lightly greased rimmed baking sheet and allow to cool completely. Once cooled, break into bite sized pieces and store in an airtight container.
