4-5 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped. Reserve the fat.
1/2 cup popping corn
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
3 Tablespoons sugar
salt to taste
Pour the reserved bacon grease into a pan.
Set heat on high.
Add popping corn to pot.
Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of sugar and some of the salt onto the kernels.
Place lid on pot.
Mix maple syrup and bacon together.
Shake covered pot repeatedly during popping process. Use a towel or oven mitts to help hold lid on. You don’t want to burn yourself and hot sugar sticks like crazytown.
Once popping has slowed, remove from heat.
Mix in maple syrup/bacon mixture to popped popcorn.
