  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°. Divide popcorn between 2 ungreased rectangular pans, 13x9x2 inches each.
  • 2
    Heat remaining ingredients in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Pour over popcorn, tossing until completely coated.
  • 3
    Bake uncovered 10 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes. Cool 10 minutes.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For added festive flavor, add 1 to 2 cups of pecans or almonds to the popcorn before baking. This popcorn, with or without the nuts, makes a nice gift. Wrap in a pretty tin and tie with a bow to present to a special friend or relative.
  • tip 2
    You can make the popcorn up to 48 hours in advance. Just remember to cool completely, then store tightly covered.
