Instructions

Fry the bacon in a skillet until crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate; reserve 1 tablespoon of bacon fat from the skillet. Once cooled, crumble bacon into small pieces.

Using a large mixing spoon, lightly coat the inside of a bowl or casserole dish large enough to hold the popcorn with the reserved bacon fat. Combine the popcorn and bacon in the greased bowl. Set aside.

Place maple syrup, in a heavy-bottomed, non-reactive saucepot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and continue boiling until the mixture reaches 236 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Drizzle the hot maple syrup over the popcorn. Working quickly, stir with greased mixing spoon until all popcorn is coated with maple syrup.

Cool and store in airtight containers in the fridge or enjoy immediately!
