Bacon Caramel Popcorn

Recipe courtesy Holeman and Finch

Total Time:1 hr 40 min Prep:10 min Inactive Prep:30 min Cook:1 hr Level:Easy Yield:1 1/2 quarts

IngredientsNonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 ounces bacon, about 2 slices
  • 1 1/2 quarts popped popcorn
  • 8 teaspoons butter
  • 4 teaspoons bacon fat
  • 5 ounces (10 tablespoons) brown sugar
  • 8 teaspoons corn syrup
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Place popped popcorn in a very large bowl.

Prepare 2 sheet pans with nonstick spray and line with aluminum foil.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, par-cook the bacon and render
the bacon fat. Once the bacon has cooked, strain the bacon fat from the
bacon pieces and reserve the fat. Transfer the cooked bacon pieces to
paper towels and continue to drain the excess fat. Then add to popcorn.

In the saucepan already used, add the butter and bacon fat (add more
bacon fat as needed). Heat until the butter has fully melted.

Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil and stir
constantly. Continue to boil without stirring for 4 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla.

Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat evenly.

Divide the mixture evenly between sheet pans and bake, stirring
every 15 minutes for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool completely
before breaking into pieces.

Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
