    Anemone's Note:

    I know. One more recipe for popcorn balls, but I looked, and this is the most basic you can get. I made two batches, one with two handfuls of unsalted peanuts.

      Yum! This recipe provides just the right ratio of molasses:sugar. We just wanted this as a topping instead of making popcorn balls, so we decreased the amount of sugar and molasses by half, and added a small pinch of salt over the bowl of popcorn before eating. Thanks for sharing!

      This is definitely simple, and I don't think anyone can mess it up. If you enjoy molasses, then these are chewy and wonderful. I know so many who don't, so I made a test batch at home by halving the recipe. Still worked great, I got about 6 balls. From reading other recipes, greasing up hands worked, too.
