Sweet and Spicy Popcorn

The other night, my boyfriend and I sat down to watch a movie.  It was a nice evening in.  We cuddled up on the couch, shielding ourselves from the thunderstorm outside.  We were just getting ready to push play when we looked at each other in bewilderment.  We are missing something.  But what could it be?  Popcorn, of course!

Popcorn is not just a a great addition to movie night.  It’s a scrumptious treat.  And it doesn’t have to be plain, old, boring popcorn and butter.   You can do all sorts of things with it!  My boyfriend actually had the idea for this one.  He said he wanted popcorn, but with a kick – a sweet, but spicy kick.  We tried this mixture and it was actually, very good.  This is a wonderfully exciting way to spice up a standard treat.  Oh, and the movie wasn’t bad either.

Approximately 6 cups of popcorn, popped

3 Tbls of butter

3 Tbls of honey

1/4 to 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you want it)

coarse sea salt to flavor

Melt butter, honey, and cayenne together in microwave.  This will only take a few seconds.  Pour mixture over popcorn.  Toss and top with salt.  Enjoy!
