Sweet Maple + Molasses Popcorn

With it’s delightful fusion of sweet maple and rich molasses, we knew we wanted to create a popcorn recipe with our new Maple + Molasses! We have a few versions of sweet popcorn on our website, such as the Molasses Popcorn Balls and the Maple Molasses Caramel Corn, but we wanted to try something new with our new Maple + Molasses.

With it’s crispy texture and decadent coating, this recipe is a new twist on a beloved, classic snack. It’s an easy-to-make movie-night snack that’s simply irresistible (and a bit addictive!). Just remember to enjoy it freshly made for the ultimate sweet, crunchy delight!

Units Scale
  • 8 cups popped popping corn (about 1/3 – 1/2 cup of kernels)
  • 1/2 cup Crosby’s Maple + Molasses
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 Tbsp butter


  1. Preheat oven to 250 F
  2. Place popped popcorn in a very large pot or mixing bowl.
  3. In a heavy pot stir together the Maple + Molasses, sugar, water and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook, stirring from time to time, until the temperature reaches 250 F on a candy thermometer.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla (it will sputter), baking soda and butter.
  5. Pour over the bowl of popped popcorn and mix gently with a rubber spatula (you don’t want to crush the popcorn). When popcorn is well coated, scrape onto a large parchment-lined sided baking sheet or a silicone mat.
  6. Spread in an even layer and bake at 250 F for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes or so.
  7. Cool before eating.


Best eaten on the day it’s made.
