Directions

Coat the sides of a large saucepan with nonstick cooking spray. In the saucepan, combine the sugar, 1/3 cup water, corn syrup, Bacon Brown Sugar Simple Syrup and salt. Cook over medium heat to 250 degrees F, according to a candy thermometer. Pour the hot mixture over the popped popcorn, stirring to coat the popcorn. Add the candied bacon and stir just to mix.

Coat hands lightly with nonstick cooking spray and shape the mixture into balls. Mixture will be hot so be careful. Place the balls on waxed paper to cool.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook the bacon, sugar and 1 cup water until lightly boiling. Strain the candied bacon and reserve. Set aside the syrup to cool.
