What a fantastic combination! I love caramel corn and bacon and bourbon.....and I loved this recipe. My husband took some it in to work to share and it got raves! Just make sure not to over-boil or over-bake because the coating can become grainy.
Any time a recipe starts with two cubes of butter, I know it's going to be good -- but this is even better than good. It's buttery, savory, sweet, crunchy and (don't tell my husband this) better than sex! Since the Mad Scientist is an analytical chemist for an agriculture company that specializes in testing nuts, I had just roasted some almonds he had brought home earlier in the week, and added that to the popcorn-caramel-bacon mixture, and it only enhanced it even more. Debating whether I want to share this at work, or just hog it all for myself.
Very good. Wasn't sure if Jack Daniels would work but it turned out fine. Only suggestion I have is to mix it in a bowl instead of all on the pan. Using the pan made it hard to mix evenly and a lot kept fallin off the pan. But a good recipe.
What a great combo of flavors. This was a hit with everyone that tried it, I'll be making it often. I did add 1 teaspoon of crushed red peppers for a bit of spice and feel it really enhanced it even more
Don't forget to keep this refrigerated. A lot of bacon fell off but it was delicious.
Think I will Try this one sounds very interesting and tasty
You had me at bourbon and popcorn! Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!
