For added festive flavor, add 1 to 2 cups of pecans or almonds to the popcorn before baking. This popcorn, with or without the nuts, makes a nice gift. Wrap in a pretty tin and tie with a bow to present to a special friend or relative.
You can make the popcorn up to 48 hours in advance. Just remember to cool completely, then store tightly covered.
Spray the measuring spoon with cooking spray before measuring molasses, and it will slip right out.
