This recipe makes enough for plain popcorn and toffee popcorn as I like having both, but if you want just one kind, then use half the popcorn


  • 75 g popcorn

  • 2 tablespoons Sunflower Oil

  • 25 g Butter

  • 40 g Brown Sugar

  • 2 tablespoons Golden Syrup

  • 40 g Butter For Toffee

  • Salt


  • 1.

    Heat the oil in a biggish saucepan.

  • 2.

    Add the popcorn and swirl the pan to coat the popcorn in oil, put the lid on, turn the heat down to low and listen for the popping!

  • 3.

    As soon as the popping almost stops take it off the heat to avoid burning the bottom.

  • 4.

    Meanwhile, melt the butter, add the brown sugar and golden syrup and stir over a high heat for 1- 2 minutes.

  • 5.

    When the popcorn has all popped, tip half of it out out of the saucepan and toss with 25g (1oz) butter and pinch of salt.

  • 6.

    Pour the toffee over the remaining popcorn, put the lid on the pan and shake to mix the toffee sauce.

  • 7.

    Pour out into bowls, nd cool a little
