  14. Caramel sauce:
  15. In a medium saucepan, add in water and sugar and bring to boil over medium heat. Do not stir as sugar crystals will form around the edges.
  16. Continue to let it boil and bubble until it turns dark amber brown, approx. 10 mins. *Be sure to keep an eye as the syrup will turn from golden brown to dark amber brown in matter of seconds.
  17. Turn off heat and add in whipping cream all at once. Be careful to stand back slightly and not burn yourself.
  18. Add in sea salt flakes and stir until dissolve. Set aside to cool for 5 mins.
  19. Prepare the gelatin by mixing it together with the water until dissolved. Add to the warm caramel sauce and mix until well combined. Set aside to cool completely.
  20. Using an electric hand mixer, add the vanilla extract and whisk the cold whipping cream into stiff peaks.
  21. Fold in the cooled caramel sauce into the whipped cream.
  22. Pour into 4 – 6 serving glasses and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  23. Top with desired amount of caramel popcorn and serve.
