Ingredients

  • 15 cups plain popped popcorn
  • 6 ounces unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F, and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Set the popcorn in a large bowl and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat, bring the butter, sugar, molasses, corn syrup, pumpkin pie spice and salt to a boil. Stir briefly with a heatproof spatula, then continue boiling for three minutes without stirring.
  • Remove from the heat and immediately pour over the popcorn. Stir until evenly combined.
  • Spread the popcorn evenly onto the sheet pan, and then place in the oven. Cook for one hour, stirring every 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, cool briefly to set, and then break into pieces (or enjoy as clusters). Serve warm or at room temperature.
