    This Bacon Caramel Popcorn is the perfect blend of sweet and salty. Perfect for parties, a snack, or even dessert!

    I am a lover of snacks and more specifically a lover of popcorn. Coat it with butter, top it with cheese, or toss it with some spices, any way you make it, I am in love. Make it sweet and salty though, I nearly lose my mind.

    Make sure you PIN Bacon Caramel Popcorn!

    That flavor combination has been a winner for me every since I was a kid. I remember getting caramel popcorn balls as party favors or at a fair and tearing through them at breakneck speed. I find that combo absolutely addictive.

    When I was thinking about making a snack for a movie at home recently, that snack came to mind. I knew I wanted that nostalgic flavor, but I wanted to give it a little twist and I couldn’t help but think bacon might amp it up a bit.

    Let’s be honest bacon makes everything better. Salty coupled with the sweet, creamy caramel over crunchy popcorn puts the perfect 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 1a in the morning, I do help myself to a batch on movie night or for the occasional 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.

    If you don’t have caramel sauce lying around, you can also try my Easy Caramel Sauce recipe. Homemade is so simple to make, always tastes amazing, only takes 15 minutes to put together. That said, either route will be delicious.

    Easy Caramel Sauce comes together in just 15 minutes with only 5 ingredients. Use it in any recipe that calls for caramel! #howtomakecaramel #caramelsauce www.savoryexperiments.com

    In terms of the bacon, I prefer thick-cut bacon with a little smoke on it, but you can use whatever is in the fridge or whatever strikes your fancy at the store.

    This should be made and eaten on the same day which I seriously doubt will be a problem. Bacon Caramel Popcorn is also a great party favor, potluck item or party munchie.
