Creamy smooth ice surf bursting with velvety popcorn flavor? Is that too crazy an idea? Veritably not. One taste is all it will take to make a parishioner out of you too.

Next up, I soaked the popped kernels in the ice surf mixture without warming it on the stovetop. Then, when it was soft, I composite it until completely smooth. This result? Mind-blowing. Very popcorn flavored ice cream.
I can’t get unbearable of it. There’s nothing largest than serving it topped with a handful of popped kernels (and a drizzle of salted caramel sauce if I have it on hand).
