THE BEST POPCORN BALLS EVER! gooey - not crunchy and with a molasses flavor

Top Review by Born2cook

These were OK but I was disappointed because mine weren't super gooey - they were hard. I've got a really great Pampered Chef thermometer so I think I did the temperature correctly - I don't know why they weren't goey. Sorry.
