Chocolate Covered Caramel Popcorn Ice Cream Sundaes by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Crunchy caramel popcorn, creamy cold ice cream, hot fudge, caramel, whipped cream, however you layer it up, this ice cream sundae left me speechless. One taste was all it took to make a Caramel Popcorn Ice Cream believer out of me.

I made a sundae on a whim late one night right after I made Salted Caramel Popcorn for the first time. I loved the sundae piled with all the fixings and then I realized that chocolate covered popcorn would make it even better. Sure enough, I was right.

This simple vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate covered caramel corn was my favorite combination of all.

I hadn’t planned to share this popcorn topped ice cream as a new recipe, but seriously, the combination is phenomenal! It practically begged to be shared. This is my newest favorite dessert!

At least once in your life, you need to try this. I was a skeptic. I can’t deny it. I’ve seen caramel popcorn ice cream sundaes on restaurant menus for the past couple years and they’ve never tempted me. Then, my friend Rebecca made one and I drooled.
I looked around and saw caramel corn sundaes here and here and here as well. Then I discovered that Harry & David includes caramel popcorn in their ice cream sundae kit. Surely all these people couldn’t be wrong. And really? If people will buy it in a kit, isn’t homemade always better?
