8 cups Popped Popcorn
1/2 cup Corn syrup
1/2 cup Light Molasses
3/4 cup Butter
1/2 teaspoon Salt
Pop the popcorn and place in a bowl.
Cook in a pot on the stove 1/2 cup light molasses with 1/2 cup corn syrup until your candy thermometer reaches hard crack stage, about 250 degrees. Stir in butter and salt.
Slowly pour in the mixture over the popcorn and stir with a wooden spoon. Coat all the popcorn.
VERY IMPORTANT: Wait until the mixture cools a bit so you don't burn your hands.
It will be very hot when you pour it in, take some time to mix it all up well to let it cool a bit. Butter your hands lightly and shape the popcorn into balls. Make them the size you want. Set them on wax paper and let them harden.
