 Ingredients List

  • 4 qt Popped popcorn
  • 1 c Spanish peanuts
  • 4 tb Butter
  • 1 c Brown sugar
  • 1/2 c Light corn syrup
  • 1/8 c Molasses
  • 1/4 ts Salt


Preheat oven to 250~F. Combine the popcorn and peanuts in a metal bowl or
on a cookie sheet and place in the preheated oven. Combine all of the
remaining ingredients in a saucepan. Stirring over med. heat, bring the
mixture to a boil. Using a cooking thermometer, bring the mixture to the
hard-ball stage (the point at which the syrup, when dripped into cold
water, forms a hard but pliable ball). This will take about 20 to 25
minutes (or until you notice th emoxture turning dark brown). Remove the
popcorn and peanuts from the oven and , working quickly, pour the caramel
mixture in a fine stream over them. Then place them back in the oven for 15
minutes. Mix well every five minutes, so that all of the popcorn is
coated. Cool and store in a covered container to preserve freshness.
