Irish Cheese and Bacon Popcorn

Hello Lovely,

St. Patrick's Day is this Saturday but I'm not that excited about it. I think I'm saving all of my enthusiasm for beach weather. When I think about St. Patrick's Day an explosion of all things green comes to mind. But green was never really my colour so I always try to think of different ways to celebrate all things Irish without painting myself green or drinking a dreaded Guinness. Enter this super easy snack recipe. This popcorn is best eaten the day it’s made. If you want to serve it at a party, have your ingredients measured ahead of time then assemble right before serving. It really doesn't get any easier than this, but I guarantee this will impress all of your guests!
