      Wonderful!!! Made popcorn using the method in Easy Microwave Popcorn and subbed honey for corn syrup. This makes a lot of syrup, enough for more popcorn if you'd like but we loved it as is. The caramel crunch is wonderful!!! Buttery and sweet and perfectly crunchy. I used regular old molasses and didn't notice a strong flavor, in fact much less than a recipe I made recently. I used unsalted butter and popcorn without salt and it was perfect, for those using microwave popcorn, I'd suggest cutting back on the additional salt. We ate the whole batch last night!! I love Cooking Light and this recipe is a wonderful find. Thanks for sharing!

      This is so postively sinful Reds. I don't see how it's light, considering the butter, but if you say so...I believe you:-) I want to, really I do:-) I love the little touch of molasses too. I can taste it just a bit, so it's not overpowering. I made the full batch and I really have to watch myself in eating this. Moderation would be the key here. Love it, per usual!!! Made for ZaarStars!!

      I loved this recipe! Although I generally love caramel corn! LOL I didn't really even notice the molasses flavor. I did make 1/2 batch and for that I'm grateful since I ate most of it myself. Great recipe.
