4 c Popped corn

1 c Peanuts

1/2 c Molasses

1/4 c Sugar

: A candy thermometer is handy to have for this rcipe to test the temperature of the syrup that binds the popcorn and nuts together. Mix popcorn and peanuts together in a large bowl or pan. Cook molasses and sugar together until the mixture reaches a tempurature of 235 degrees on a candy thermometer. If you don't have a thermometer, test

the syrup by letting some drop from a spoon into acup of cold water. The syrup is done when it forms a thead as it drops into the water. Pour hot syrup mixture over the popcorn nut mixture and stir to coat evenly. Cool and break into chunks with a wooden spoon. Stored in an airtight container, mixture will keep well for 4 tho 6 weeks.
