4 qts plain popcorn 1 cup molasses 1 cup sugar ½ teaspoon salt 1 cup wheat germ

Cooking Process

Prepare 4 quarts of unbuttered popcorn according to the instructions. Place in a large, buttered, heatproof bowl. In a 2-quart saucepan, combine molasses, sugar and salt. Cook over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Increase the heat setting to medium and cook the syrup until it reaches 260°F (127°C) on a candy thermometer. In the meantime, heat the wheat germ in a small skillet over low heat, stirring until warm. When the syrup reaches 260°F (127°C), stir in the warm wheat germ. Pour the syrup over the popcorn, tossing to coat evenly. With buttered hands, shape the mixture into 14 to 16 orange-size balls. Allow the balls to cool for 1 hour.
