Many recipes for maple syrup flavoured popcorn have lots of ingredients, everything from butter, cinnamon to corn syrup. I am always after the easy way to do things and this works perfectly!
I use premade popcorn for a few reasons, one – easy! Two it is often flavoured itself so adds to the end flavour perfectly. Today I have used my favourite which is Sweet and Salty. It is so tasty and moreish. You could use a lightly buttered or salted version if you prefer.
Or of course make your own using corn kernels. Simply follow the instructions on the packet for how to pop 4 cups worth and allow to cool.
All you need to make Maple Syrup Popcorn is
The method is super simple. As I mention I always use premade popcorn so no need to make the popcorn first! Add the popcorn to a large bowl. Don’t do what I have done here and add it to a cute small bowl so the photos look pretty – you will end up with hot syrupy popcorn everywhere when stirring!
I heat the maple syrup in a small sauce pan until it begins to simmer, then lowering the heat simmer for 3 minutes. Remove it from the heat and add in the vanilla and stir well.
Pour this over the popcorn and stir well, being cautious as the syrup is very hot.
Then pour the popcorn onto a lined tray, spreading it out into a single layer to allow it to completely cool.
Once completely cool you can then pop it in an airtight container for a few days. This recipe makes 4 cups worth of popcorn so can easily be doubled for a bigger crowd.

I’ve never heard of Vanilla Essence ….. can Vanilla extract be used ?
Yes definitely. Extract is the original form, essence is the synthetic form. You may wish to use slightly less of your favourite extract in its place.
Julie Rivers says
Mine turned out soggy and sticky.
Sorry to hear that, not sure what could have gone wrong.
Is the end product crunchy?
It is sort of soft with a slight crust to it if that makes sense. Not crunchy like it would be with a hard caramel coating.

Can you use golden syrup instead of maple syrup if you don’t have any?
Movie night tonight so promised the family some of your popcorn. First time making but it sounded good ?
Yes I am sure you could. Will have a less sweet taste.
