We learned to make microwave caramel corn in a paper bag using a technique similar to this in my middle school home ec class. I imagine my mom has the instructions filed away somewhere in her recipe box, but IIRC it went something like 1) pop popcorn kernels in a paper bag using the technique described in the article. 2) Add caramel ingredients to the bag and microwave a bit longer. I don't remember the full ingredient list or cooking times, but I'm almost certain butter, corn syrup, and brown sugar were involved. 3) Shake the bag to distribute the caramel over the popcorn.

ETA: This recipe seems more or less like what we made, although it says to pop the popcorn first and then place it in the bag, although I imagine either way would work. And there's the step of microwaving the caramel ingredients together and then pouring the result into the bag, which is probably what we did but I'd forgotten.
