If you have been looking for the perfect home movie snack, then this recipe is for you! This sweet and salty Popcorn snack is quick and easy and will not disappoint.
This Bacon Caramel Popcorn is the perfect blend of sweet and salty. Perfect for parties, snacks and dessert!
Bacon makes everything better. Salty coupled with sweet, creamy caramel over crunchy popcorn puts a new spin on an old favorite. This one is a sticky concoction that is truly finger licking good.
Does anyone else crave salty and sweet like I do? I wake up in the middle of the night thinking about it. For real!
While I resist the urge to get up and make myself a batch of Bacon Caramel Popcorn at 1 in the morning, I do help myself to a batch on movie night or whenever we need a snack.
Bacon is always in my fridge, as is ready-to-pop popcorn in the pantry. I hate to say there is usually ready made caramel sauce too. The perils of being a food blogger are always having a few key elements around like finishing salt, curly parsley and for desserts, caramel sauce.
For the caramel sauce you can use my Easy Caramel Sauce recipe or you can use a store bought. Home made is so simple to make always tastes better and it only takes 15 minutes to put together.
Make it ahead of time and store it at room temperture for up to a week. Bacon Caramel Popcorn is also a great party favor, potluck item or party munchie.
