“If you love bacon, this is the caramel popcorn recipe you have been looking for! Be warned, once you start snacking, it's difficult to stop. Butter can be halved for a leaner dessert.”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Arrange bacon slices close together and slightly overlapping onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle bacon slices evenly with maple syrup.
  3. Place the baking sheet in the cold oven; set temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Bake until bacon is crisp, about 20 minutes.
  4. Transfer bacon slices to a paper towel-lined plate to cool. Crumble cooled bacon.
  5. Reduce oven temperature to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil.
  6. Lightly mix popcorn, rice cereal, wheat cereal, peanuts, pretzels, and crumbled bacon together in a large bowl. Transfer to the prepared baking sheets.
  7. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; mix brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt into the melted butter. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to boil. Boil mixture, without stirring, for 4 minutes.
  8. Place popcorn mixture in the preheated oven to warm.
  9. Remove the butter mixture from heat and mix in vanilla extract and baking soda until caramel begins to foam. Drizzle caramel in a thin stream over popcorn mixture, tossing to evenly coat.
  10. Bake caramel corn in the oven, stirring every 15 minutes, until caramel coating is set, 1 hour. Let caramel corn cool completely before breaking into pieces.

Daughter and her friend loved them! I think I will add the bacon half way through the baking time or 15 min prior to finishing because my bacon turned black :( but it's still good. Maybe my bacon wasn't thick enough? Hmm we'll see next time. I didnt add the wheat chex mix (not a fan), instead, i used all the regular chex mix....I'm sure you can use whatever mix you like. Also, I used a large non-stick roasting pan & lightly sprayed it with Pam. I've never made caramel popcorn with foil before.
