Cashew Popcorn Molasses Clusters


10 cups popped popcorn

2 cups tiny pretzel twists

1 (8.5-ounce) can (1 1/2 cups) dry roasted or salted cashews

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3 tablespoons light corn syrup

2 tablespoons molasses

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 300°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine popcorn, pretzel twists and cashews in roasting pan.

  3. STEP 3

    Melt butter over low heat in 2-quart saucepan. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, molasses and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 4-5 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, without stirring, 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in soda until mixture foams and lightens in color.

  4. STEP 4

    Pour over popcorn mixture; gently stir to coat. Bake 20 minutes, stirring halfway through baking time. Spread onto large piece of aluminum foil. Cool completely. Break into pieces. Store in container with tight-fitting lid.

Tip #1

Use conventionally popped, air-popped, or microwave popcorn in this recipe. Discard any unpopped kernels. If using popcorn that is already salted, reduce salt to 1/4 teaspoon.
