Olivia found this fun recipe at  With autumn coming sooner than we all might think, you might be looking for a yummy snack to share with loved ones or even as a Halloween treat.  This popcorn is so very good because it has BACON!  Who wouldn't like popcorn made with bacon?  It has a sweet and salty flavor combo that makes just about anyone happy.

The recipe is simple and delicious.  Give it a try.  You won't be disappointed!


  • ½ cup corn kernels
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • ⅓ cup bacon grease (plus vegetable oil if necessary)
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • Sea Salt to taste


  1. In a large skillet (or grill), cook the bacon until golden and crispy. Reserve the bacon in a plate lined with paper towel and transfer the grease to a large pot. (If the grease is less than ⅓ cup, add some vegetable oil to complete.)
  2. Add the kernels to the bacon grease/oil and bring it to medium high heat. When the kernels start popping, make sure you shake the pot every now and then so you don't end up with too many unpopped kernels.
  3. Once you don't hear any more popping (or if the intervals are too long), your popcorn is done and you can remove it from the heat.
  4. Break the bacon into pieces and toss it with the popcorn.
  5. In the same skillet you fried the bacon, bring the butter and the maple syrup to the stove and cook until it thickens slightly.
  6. Pour the maple syrup butter into the popcorn/bacon mixture and, using two wooden spoons, mix everything together until most of the popcorn is coated with the maple syrup butter.
  7. Sprinkle the popcorn with sea salt and serve immediately! If the popcorn sits for too long, it might get soggy.
