Chocolate Drizzled Bacon Peanut Butter Caramel Corn zero corn syrup!
I know today is supposed to be Wellness Wednesday, but I’m going for a little break until the New Year. No worries – I’m going to be back next week with a fresh WW post; I understand I’ve been apart for some time! I’m guessing most of us probably have. This season is such an excellent time to just kick up your feet, read a new book, and just enjoy family time. And essentially every cookie in sight.
That being said, I’ve done my fair share of eating, drinking, and cooking. Tony’s birthday was the other day 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 had been the best meal I’ve available him. The pie was perfect. I really feel awful about not really posting the formula, but it also seems a little wrong to throw a dessert filled with butter, cream and delicious chocolate when we’re all trying to eat healthful again. What do you think? If you’d like the formula, I’d be happy to allow it to be again and photograph it. I want to know!
Up coming up! I also celebrated my birthday in Chicago last week. (Therefore yes, you can view how I’ve been so busy outside of your blog.) Over the morning hours of my birthday, Tony took me to brunch then we went to a no-kill pet shelter; per typical I needed to take home all of the cats. He also got me the cutest Michael Kors purse which I wear everywhere now. Later on that night, we went to dinner and to a display. Overall, it was a really great and relaxing birthday.
This in a few days I’ll be diving back into baking and cooking. I’m endeavoring to shy from too many cooking recipes, but you know it’s my favorite move to make. Overall I have some really fascinating things planned and perhaps some brand-new features on your blog, too!
Okay, so snacks time. This recipe was apparently therefore delightful that Tony ate an entire batch in a single evening. YEP… ONE Evening.
I actually don’t blame him. I’m a HUGE fan of nice and salty snacks. WHILE I was small my mom used to drizzled peanut butter on the top of our snacks, so that’s what really inspired this formula. It’s a little like caramel corn, except much less crunchy rather than overly sweet. I skipped the corn syrup and chosen honey rather; some bacon is also added to the formula because hello – peanut butter and bacon may be the most magical combination. EVER.
This popcorn would be a wonderful addition to your New Year’s appetizer table, or perhaps even for just a little Sunday night football action. Either way, I hope you love it. And pigs trotters undoubtedly, the chocolate drizzle is totally optional. If you want to leave it off, that’s perfectly fine. The popcorn 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. I am hoping you have a safe and sound and happy brand-new year. Xoxo.
3 tablespoons honey
4 pieces prepared bacon, cooked and finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon ocean salt, plus much more to taste
For the drizzle:
Pop your popcorn with whatever technique you choose. You can use low fat microwave popcorn or surroundings popped snacks. Place half of the snacks in a big bowl.
In a saucepan heat honey, brown sugar and coconut oil on moderate until all of it is melted and sugar is dissolved. Add cooking soda pop, vanilla and peanut butter and stir for 30 mere seconds or until mix is warm. Mix in bacon pieces. Turn off temperature and pour fifty percent of the caramel sauce on snacks in skillet. Add all of those other popcorn and peanut butter caramel sauce and collapse snacks over until it is mostly coated with sauce.
Sprinkle sea salt over caramel snacks and again fold over.
Immediately remove popcorn from baking pan and spread equally on wax paper. If you choose to do the delicious chocolate drizzle: Place the chocolates potato chips and coconut essential oil within a microwave secure dish for 20-30 secs, stirring until chips are all melted. Drizzle melted chocolates all over caramel corn and invite to harden for 20 a few minutes. You can place the snacks within the refrigerator for a few minutes to help harden the delicious chocolate a bit. Popcorn is wonderful for 3-4 times stored at area temperature within a container or plastic handbag. Acts 8. About 1 glass per serving.
To create this formula vegan: Leave out bacon. Use brown rice syrup instead of honey, and make certain chocolate is normally vegan.
It is possible to replace brown sugar with coconut sugar, I’m confident the results would taste similar.
Happy belated birthday and content new year!
