Gingerbread Popcorn

I've seen this recipe on Culinary in the Desert three years in a row. It always looks so good, but I had never gotten around to trying it. Finally I decided to bite the bullet and make it. This popcorn is very flavorful. I loved it!

Gingerbread Popcorn

15 cups popped popcorn

1 cup butter

2 cups packed brown sugar

1/4 cup molasses

1/4 cup corn syrup

1 Tbs ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 250.

Line two 9x13 pans with foil and coat with cooking spray. Fill each with 7 1/2 cups of popcorn.

Combine butter, brown sugar, molasses, corn syrup, ginger, cinnamon, and salt in a large, heavy bottom sauce pan. Heat over medium until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes while stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add baking soda. Pour over popcorn and toss to coat.

Bake at 250 for 1 hour, carefully stirring the mixture every 15 minutes. Cool completely.
