Popcorn Ice Cream with Salted Butter Caramel Sauce

Nope, this isn't my recipe. I found it here:
And it is amazing.
I didn't really think I was a huge fan of popcorn. The thought of it sends me back a few years to back to when I worked in an office and at least once a week someone would burn a bag of microwave popcorn and the stink of scorched corn would linger in the air for the rest of the day. Recently, I've taken to making it on the stove, with old fashioned loose corn. I'd forgotten how good it can be.
The recipe is good enough that making conversions from metric to whatever our system is called that isn't metric, in hindsight, wasn't all that annoying. Also, the recipes aren't exactly matched. I ended up with WAY too much sauce. But if my biggest problem in my life right now is that I have too much salted butter caramel sauce, I'm not gonna feel TOO bad for myself.


  1. Either you get the biggest popcorn ever or you have the smallest ice cream scoop I have ever seen. looks good though.

  2. I know! It looks a little crazy. I don't have a tiny scoop so I had to form those little balls using two soup spoons. I didn't want to touch them and get them melty or fingerprinty. It was a PITA to try to make that look pretty. Maybe I should have used little pieces of popcorn.

  3. First time reader... loving it. We use Imperial Measurements, I think.
