Yield: 5 servings

3 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon brown sugar

3 tablespoons bourbon

¼ cup maple syrup

12 cups popped popcorn

½ teaspoon salt, or to taste

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and set aside.

2. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add brown sugar and cook, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves. Add bourbon; it should boil immediately. Simmer, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in maple syrup and cook until somewhat thickened.

3. Pour mixture over popcorn and toss with salt. Taste and add more salt if needed.

4. Spread mixture in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and place in oven until the popcorn is dry and crispy, about 45 to 50 minutes.
