"Every once in a while, someone will mail me a single popcorn kernel that didn't pop. I'll get out a fresh kernel, tape it to a piece of paper and mail it back to them." -Orville Redenbacher, Famous gourmet popcorn mogul
This is a quick and easy dessert or snack that everyone will love. If your family is full of chocolate lovers, use the chocolate topping, but I particularly love the caramel. This will appeal to all the folks in your household - both sweet lovers and salty snackers.
Pre-made Caramel Ice Cream Toppings work well. Look for ones without high fructose corn syrup.

This recipe is best fresh but the popcorn is pretty good the next day. Put in plastic zipper bags after it cools.
Pop the popcorn using the directions on the package. I have found that 2 minutes and 30 seconds on high works well.
While the popcorn is popping, place the ice cream topping in a very large glass mixing bowl. The popcorn will make about 15 cups, so the bowl needs to be at least 4 quarts.
After the popcorn is popped, remove it and open the bag to let the steam escape. Place the bowl with the ice cream topping in the microwave and heat for 5 - 6 ten second intervals. Don't let the syrup become too hot or too thin. It should be warm but not to hot to the touch and still take a little time to flow when the bowl is tilted.
Remove the bowl from the microwave and add the popcorn. Using a rubber spatula scrape down the side of the bowl turning the popcorn over as you go. It will take about 5 - 10 minutes of carefully scraping and turning to coat all of the popcorn.
Serve or wait for about 15 minutes before placing in ziplock bags.
