There’s an ice cream flavor I love called Caramel Caribou.
It’s dark chocolate ice cream with swirls of caramel, cashews, and white chocolate chunks.
This recipe is the reincarnation of that ice cream in popcorn form.
And I can assure you, it’s as decadent as it sounds.
Plus– if you’re a Harry & David Moose Munch fan, this treat is right up your alley :)
Caramel Caribou Popcorn
- 6 tbsp. butter
- 3 tbsp. corn syrup

- Pour caramel over popcorn and stir to coat.
- Spread onto greased cookie sheet, and bake for 10-15 minutes (closer to 10 for chewy, closer to 15 for crunchy).
