Pretty awesome, huh? For this particular blog post, I used a bag of SkinnyPop Dusted Dark Chocolate.

Consequently, be sure to check out all of their scrumptious flavors over at SkinnyPop Popcorn.
SkinnyPop German Chocolate Caramel Popcorn features a wonderful combination of chocolate + caramel + pecans + coconut flavors.
This fabulous snack is sure to be a hit with your family and friends any day of the week. However, it’s also a great treat when served on game day, for a birthday party, sleepover, movie night, baby or bridal shower, wedding reception, Germanfest, the holidays, and so much more.
Here are a few key tips for making SkinnyPop German Chocolate Caramel Popcorn:
- Place popcorn in a large metal or glass bowl. DO NOT USE PLASTIC! When you pour the caramel sauce over the popcorn the hot caramel may melt the plastic if it comes into contact with it.
- You will need a long handled wooden spoon or heat-resistant silicone spoon to stir and mix the hot caramel sauce and popcorn together.
- Do not add extracts until after the sauce is finished. If you add them during the cooking process the flavors of the extracts will “cook out” of the sauce and it will not be as flavorful.
- When adding the extracts to the hot caramel sauce the mixture will bubble and steam until it is fully blended in. Be careful not to stand directly over the pan during this process.
I recommend using quality chocolate extract and coconut extract when making this recipe.Personally, my favorite extracts are the Nielsen-Massey extracts because they are concentrated, pure gluten-free extracts that are full of rich flavor. They really are fabulous.
In conclusion, I think you’ll love this recipe. In addition, consider making a batch of SkinnyPop German Chocolate Caramel Popcorn and giving some away as a tasty homemade DIY gift. Therefore, I recommend loading up on a lot of SkinnyPop Popcorn!!!
