  • ½ cup popcorn kernels
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons molasses
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Pop one half cup of popcorn kernels. Be sure to remove any unpopped kernels - nobody needs a broken tooth! Place the popped popcorn in a large mixing bowl.
  • Combine the maple syrup, molasses, gingerbread spices, and salt in a small saucepan. Heat the syrup over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it comes to a boil.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  • Slowly drizzle the syrup over the popped corn, stirring to coat the popcorn as evenly as possible.
  • Bake at 300° for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes.
  • Allow the popcorn to cool completely. It will become crispier as it cools. Store in an air tight container.
