Combine the bacon fat and kernels in a pot, cover, and cook over medium-high heat. Once popping begins, tilt the lid slightly to let some steam out and give the pot a shake. Once the popping steadies and slows down remove from the heat. Pour into a serving bowl and garnish with shaved Parmesan and diced chives and drizzle with truffle oil.
