“This is yet another recipe I haven't tried, but the name, ingredients & prep grabbed my attention. I would never have thot to combine popcorn & ice cream in a dessert, but it seemed to me that adults & kids alike would really go for this treat. Times have been estimated, but the prep & freezing time will require you to plan ahead. My source here is the Popcorn Institute. Enjoy!”
