Spicy Maple Bacon, Popcorn and Almond Buckets

It’s fall party season, so today I thought I’d share a fun recipe from Diamond Nuts, and Pop Secret that would be great for fall parties. I think these popcorn buckets are really a cute idea! You can change the container, and the color of the tissue paper and you can use this for any party theme.

This recipe is from Chef Tina Salter, a cookbook author and creator of exclusive recipes for Diamond Foods. You can find more recipes for easy entertaining at the Feed Your Fingers website.
