Bacon Chocolate Chipotle Popcorn
This popcorn is so simple and such a simple gift to make for your friends and family this holiday season!
My boyfriend is responsible for this post … I asked him if he likes popcorn (because I frickin’ LOVE popcorn) and, much to my dismay, he said he isn’t a big popcorn fan … but then he shared a story of a bacon chocolate popcorn that he did enjoy. I said … wait! Did you say … BACON Chocolate popcorn? That sounds like something I need to make.
… And so I did. And I can barely contain myself from eating it. First of all there’s bacon … how can you go wrong with that? And then it’s got that I-can’t-help-myself dark chocolate indulgelne with just a light tingle of smokey bacon and a tingle of heat from chipotle chile powder.
You’ll want to dance when you eat it. Or maybe just sit and enjoy the dance on your tongue. Either way, I hope you love it and happy holidays to all of you. I’m sending my love and good wishes to all of you and your family and friends this holiday season. Peace to you, your family and loved ones.
- 2 - 3 strips of lean, nitrate-free bacon, fried crisp and chopped fine
- 8 - 10 cups popped corn
- 1 1/2 - 2 cups honey roasted peanuts
- 2 cups good quality dark chocolate melting wafers (or chocolate chips)
- 1 - 2 teaspoons chipotle powder (I used 2 teaspoons)
- Fry up the bacon and then chop it into as small bits as possible.
- Line two baking sheets with silicon liners or waxed paper. Sprinkle the popcorn out over the two sheets, spreading it into a single layer as much as possible. Sprinkle the peanuts on top.
- Put the chocolate in a bowl and microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir and stir and stir. Microwave another 30 seconds. Stir a lot more. If you still can't stir out all the chunks of chocolate, microwave another 30 seconds and stir stir stir.
- Stir the bacon and chipotle powder into the melted chocolate. Drizzle over the popcorn, then (before the chocolate sets) sprinkle immediately with the sea salt. Set aside until the chocolate is hardened, then break into small chunks and put in an airtight container or tin.
