My favorite use for molasses is for a glaze, with bay leaves, whiskey, peppercorns, and mustard. Sometimes cider... I used it on ham and ribs.

Yeah, BBQ sauce works well. No rush to finish it up though, it won't go bad.

Add to Brown butter frosting (or any frosting, royal icing), whipped cream, Old English Hard Sauce for a topping for cakes or make some baked beans. Make a glaze for roasted vegetables such as carrots and onions or roasted acorn squash with butter.

Toast a slice of good bread, slather with butter, then spoon on the molasses.

I just saw that someone (I can't remember where I saw it) made a vegetarian French onion soup with vegetable broth and a couple of tablespoons of molasses.

Definitely add to whatever base cookie/sweet recipe you've got going on - chocolate chip cookies (Mrslarkin's chubby chewy chocolate chip cookies have molasses I think), brownies, whatever. I just added a T to my banana bread that I made this weekend. It sort of acts like brown sugar and gives a bit of depth to your sweets.

You can make your own brown sugar in a pinch. Ratios all over the internet. It's nice because you can make it as golden or dark as you'd like.

Bourbon balls! I made the Bourbon Balls from the Garden and Gun's new cookbook "The Southerner's Cookbook" for Thanksgiving. I subbed out the 1/4 cup of corn syrup with half molasses and honey and it was great.

Instead of sugar in hot chocolate - best with high quality dark chocolate. Makes an incredible non-dairy hot chocolate for those not looking for creamy comfort, just deep beautiful flavor. ;o)

I substitute molasses for honey in these chocolate bourbon balls, posted by Amanda Hesser: https://food52.com/recipes... Scrumptious.

Also, last week I made a classic almond toffee -- butter / brown sugar / chopped nuts / melted dark chocolate -- in which I subbed two tablespoons of molasses for two tablespoons of brown sugar. Best toffee I've ever made. ;o)
