Solar Cooker Honey Popcorn

Solar Cooker Honey candy mix for popcorn

This Solar Cooker Honey Popcorn is a favorite with kids and the honey bees...literally the smell of the cooking honey caused a stir amongst the honey bee population in our back yard and it caused me a bit of inconvenience trying to fend off the bees while stirring the honey candy coating mixture on the Solar Burner.

(see finished popcorn down below)

Now, for the recipe.


  • 1 cube of butter
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of cream, (can use milk sour cream diluted with a little milk)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda


  • Thick gauge pot/sauce pan (darkened bottom if possible for better heat absorption)
  • Wooden spoon or metal if that is all you have
  • Parabolic Cooker


-Pop your popcorn on your parabolic using a thick gauge covered pot or popcorn whirly popper. I pop mine using peanut oil or olive oil, and then I salt it just as I dump the popcorn into my mixing bowl.

Next, combine and bring all ingredients to a a medium boil in your sauce pan (except baking soda) and cook over medium heat until it reaches soft ball stage.

If you want it a bit darker and thicker then boil it longer.

(If your parabolic is larger and produces more heat than normal, I found it helpful to stand in front of the parabola to block a bit of the suns rays, thus allowing for a more moderate boil.)

Stir the mixture regularly.

(after a while you may start to notice bees coming to investigate ;)

When your confection reaches soft ball stage, add your baking soda and mix well throughout the honey mixture until you see the whole mixture start to foam and rise.

Take off heat and quickly pour over your popcorn.

Mix and stir the popcorn and honey mixture until well coated. The allow it to cool for about 15 minutes.

This is very easy to make and it is very tasty, as well as a bit more nutritious than a straight sugar based candy coating.
