With the holidays coming up, I wanted to make some fun food in the air fryer, to be served on holidays and get-togethers. Today, I made my son’s favorite Air Fryer Caramel Popcorn.


  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  1. In a medium-sized, microwave safe, mixing bowl, add the butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and baking soda.
  2. Place in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until the mixture is bubbling.
  3. Then pour the bubbling mixture onto the popcorn, use tongs, and toss, so the popcorn is well coated.
  4. Pour the popcorn mixture onto the air fryer tray, set into the air fryer for 5 minutes at 250 degrees F. After the 5 minutes, use tongs and flip the popcorn and then air fry for another 5 to 8 minutes.
  5. Plate, serve, and enjoy!
