The 'Food52' blog recently put together a recipe for making boozy maple bacon popcorn. While popcorn is not usually associated with hard liquor, this recipe combines the two in a surprisingly delicious way.
The recipe involves combining popcorn kernels, Jack Daniels whiskey, pure maple syrup and a touch of bacon grease to produce the ultimate popcorn treat. To begin, users simply pop the kernels in a dutch oven filled with a small amount of bacon grease. In a separate pot, users whips up a batch of Jack Daniels-butter-maple syrup. Once the kernels have fully popped, the two ingredients are combined to create a batch of delicious maple bacon popcorn.
While National Popcorn Day may have passed, this recipe is perfect for making movie night a bit more exciting.
