Cheesy Caramel Puff Corn ~ Easy, snack you can make in the microwave!

Have you noticed my obsession with Puff Corn yet? It started with the White Chocolate Puff Corn then moved onto the Cinnamon White Chocolate Puff Corn and now I bring you Cheesy Caramel Puff Corn!

Every recipe is just as amazing as the next, mostly because well, I adore puff corn. Plus they all mix up my favorite combination of sweet and salty. That you can’t go wrong with my friends.

I’m not real sure how I got the idea of caramel and cheese and thought hmmm that’s a wonderful combination. Because well let’s face it. It sounds a bit odd doesn’t it? Rest assured though that I am not leading you astray. You got to have a little faith in me on this one. I adore the regular puff corn drenched in a bath of caramel so I decided this would be a fun twist on things!

Easy, Cheesy Caramel Puff Corn you can make in the microwave! A perfection of sweet, salty and a hint of cheese! Trust me on this one!

I brought it to a holiday party and my sis-in-law came out with a handful, looked at me and said you must have brought this huh? I then had to ask how she knew, she informed me because it was amazing but quite an odd combo so it must be mine.


I’ll take that as a compliment. I’m amazing and a bit odd too. So hey my recipes must be a reflection of me huh?

    No way! I love puff corn but never thought to use the cheese kind! YUM!

  • Robin

    Sounds delish! We have a Topsy’s (popcorn shop) and ever since I was little I would mix the caramel & cheese popcorn together. The best (and only way in my opinion) to eat it. YUM! Several years ago they even started selling bags of the two flavors mixed.

      Someone understands my madness with the caramel and cheese!

  • Robin

    Haha Julie, most people scoff at the two flavors together until they taste it!!! It does sound very strange but is just sooooooooo good 🙂 Together they make an amazing flavor that is its own.
