Mix the brown sugar, corn syrup, salt, butter and vanilla in a sauce pot; boil until bubbly and thick, about 5-7 minutes. While still hot, pour the caramel over the popcorn in a large mixing bowl and use two, long handled, steel kitchen spoons to mix until the popcorn is evenly coated with the caramel. Next, spread the caramel popcorn onto 2 full sized sheet pans. Cut the frozen, raw DoubleTree cookie dough into small cubes about 1/3rd of an inch each. Sprinkle the diced cookie dough evenly over the pans of caramel popcorn. Bake at 350° for about 8 minutes, allow to fully cool, then break the popcorn into smaller, bite sized pieces.
