Chocolate Drizzled Bacon Peanut Butter Caramel Corn No Corn Syrup!
Chocolate Drizzled Bacon Peanut Butter Caramel Corn no corn syrup!
I understand today is supposed to become Wellness Wednesday, but I'm going for a little break before New Year. No worries - I'll be back in a few days with a fresh WW post; I know I've been aside for some time! I'm guessing we all probably have. This year is such a wonderful time to simply kick up your feet, read a new book, and enjoy family time. And fundamentally every cookie around the corner.
That said, I've done my fair share of eating, taking in, and food preparation. Tony's birthday was last week and I got the pleasure of earning him a version of King Arthur Flour's deep dish pizza , after that homemade French Silk Pie for dessert. Swear to goodness, it was the best food I've ever made him. The pie was ideal. I really experience awful about not posting the recipe, but it also seems a little wrong to throw a dessert full of butter, cream and chocolates when we're all trying to eat healthful again. What do you consider? If you want the recipe, I'd be pleased to make it again and photo it. I want to know!
Up coming up! I also celebrated my birthday in Chicago the other day. (So yes, you can see how I've been so busy outside of your blog.) For the morning of my birthday, Tony took me to brunch after that we visited a no-kill pet shelter; per typical I wanted to take home every one of the cats. He also got me the cutest Michael Kors handbag which I wear everywhere now. Afterwards that night, we went out to dinner and to a display. Overall, it had been a really good and comforting birthday.
This next week I'll be diving back to baking and cooking. I'm endeavoring to shy away from too many baking recipes, nevertheless, you know it's my favorite move to make. Overall I have some really exciting things planned and perhaps some brand-new features on the blog, too!
Okay, so popcorn time. This recipe was apparently so delightful that Tony ate a whole batch in a single night. YEP… ONE NIGHT.
We don't blame him. I'm an enormous fan of sweet and salty popcorn. WHILE I was little my mom used to drizzled peanut butter at the top of our popcorn, so that's what actually inspired this recipe. It's similar to caramel corn, except not as crunchy and not overly special. I skipped the corn syrup and chosen honey instead; some bacon can be added to the recipe because hello - peanut butter and bacon may be the most magical mixture. EVER.
This popcorn will be a wonderful addition to your New Year's appetizer table, or perhaps even for a little Weekend night football action. Either way, I hope you like it. And of course, the chocolates drizzle is totally optional. If you wish to leave it off, that's perfectly fine. The snacks is going from the chains. You can even make this a mix by incorporating pretzels and peanuts, or whatever you can get your hands on. fish stew hope you have a safe and sound and happy new year. Xoxo.
3 tablespoons honey
4 pieces cooked bacon, prepared and finely chopped
/4 teaspoon ocean salt, plus more to taste
For the drizzle:
Pop your popcorn with whatever method you choose. You should use zero fat microwave popcorn or air flow popped snacks. Place half of the popcorn in a big bowl.
Inside a saucepan heat honey, brown sugar and coconut oil on medium until everything is melted and sugar is dissolved. Add cooking soda, vanilla and peanut butter and stir for 30 seconds or until mix is warm. Stir in bacon parts. Turn off temperature and pour half of the caramel sauce on popcorn in pan. Add all of those other popcorn and peanut butter caramel sauce and collapse popcorn over until it's mostly coated with sauce.
Sprinkle sea sodium over caramel popcorn and again fold over.
Instantly remove popcorn from baking pan and spread evenly on wax paper. If you opt to do the delicious chocolate drizzle: Place the chocolates chips and coconut oil within a microwave safe dish for 20-30 seconds, stirring until potato chips are all melted. Drizzle melted delicious chocolate around caramel corn and allow to harden for 20 minutes. It is possible to place the popcorn in the refrigerator for a couple minutes to help harden the delicious chocolate a little. Popcorn is wonderful for 3-4 days stored at space temperature in a container or plastic handbag. Serves 8. About glass per serving.
To create this recipe vegan: Leave out bacon. Use dark brown rice syrup rather than honey, and make certain chocolate is usually vegan.
It is possible to replace dark brown sugar with coconut sugar, I'm confident the results would taste similar.
Happy belated birthday and happy new year!
