 Ingredients List

  • 4 c Popped corn
  • 1 c Peanuts
  • 1/2 c Molasses
  • 1/4 c Sugar


: A candy thermometer is handy to have for this rcipe to test the
temperature of the syrup that binds the popcorn and nuts together.

Mix popcorn and peanuts together in a large bowl or pan.

Cook molasses and sugar together until the mixture reaches a tempurature of
235 degrees on a candy thermometer. If you don't have a thermometer, test
the syrup by letting some drop from a spoon into acup of cold water. The
syrup is done when it forms a thead as it drops into the water.

Pour hot syrup mixture over the popcorn nut mixture and stir to coat
evenly. Cool and break into chunks with a wooden spoon. Stored in an
airtight container, mixture will keep well for 4 th\o 6 weeks.

Yield: 40 oz.
