Chili and Spice Popcorn

Did anyone else watch the Golden Globe awards last night? I did, of course, because I get sucked into things like that and no matter how bizarre the whole thing is, I really do like to see what people are wearing and hope to see some awkward moment like Jacqueline Bissette’s acceptance speech.  Could the men have looked any better this year?  Geez!  Usually it’s the women’s dresses that are all the talk but nothing gets much better than seeing Chris Hemsworth, Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio, Taylor Kinney, and Jared Leto is tuxes.  Wowza!  Anyway, a perfect and quick snack for a long television event like the Globes is this Chili and Spice Popcorn.

Plain old microwavable popcorn is jazzed up with a mixture of melted butter, chili powder, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  The mixture of the spices with the brown sugar makes this snack wonderfully sweet and savory which just melts on your tongue.  This popcorn is slightly addictive and before you know it, you’ll be licking your fingers and considering making another batch.  Now that’s a good golden snack.
