To make the burnt sugar glaze, add sugar to a (different) large skillet and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly. Stir for about 6-8 minutes, until the sugar becomes golden, then add in boiling water and whisk until the sugar is disclosed. If a few pieces crystalize, it’s fine. Simple strain the sugar/water immediately to get all the liquid, then pour it oven the popcorn. Toss constantly for a minute or two until the bacon and glaze are evenly dispersed. Serve!
