Bringing a touch of fall to the summer season, Maple Bacon Bourbon Pops offer a savory flavor and a refreshing chill.

It has been proven numerous times that bacon and bourbon make quite the exquisite pair. However, this recipe takes the dynamic duo into a more unconventional category. Born in Brimingham, Alabama, this rum-infused recipe was created by Steel City Pops owner Jim Watkins. Steel City Pops is known for its vast variety in gourmet pops, but this particular popsicle is the most unique of them all. Using crisp bacon pieces, vanilla bean, milk, maple syrup and bourbon, Watkins was able to create these smoky frozen treats.
