  • 1/3 cup of uncooked Bob’s Red Mill® Yellow Popcorn kernels
  • ½ cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • ½ cup of light corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons of bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon of sea or Kosher salt


  • Pop the uncooked kernels into an air popper and cook. Once finished set aside in a large bowl.
  • In a medium sized pot on medium heat, bring to a boil the butter, brown sugar and syrup and boil for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the cream, bourbon and salt and immediately pour over the popcorn in the bowl and mix with a rubber spatula until combined.
  • Next, lie out the popcorn on a sheet pan until crisp up or serve immediately.
  • If the popcorn remains soft, place it in the oven on 275° for 3 to 5 minutes to crisp up.
