Dress up your popcorn. This recipe uses a bag of microwave popcorn drizzled with caramel and sprinkled with paprika, salt, coriander, white pepper, and cayenne pepper and then tossed to coat.

This was a bit too spicy hot for me. I even made two batches of the sugar/butter combo using just sugar/butter in the 2nd go-over. Still really spicy, but after mixing it alltogether with a bag of plain popcorn, it was better. Thanks Glo. Made as a recipenap for AU Recipeswap~

Remove from heat; stir in 1 tablespoon butter. Pour the caramel over the popcorn in a bowl, sprinkle with the spice mix and toss to coat. Spread out on a baking sheet to cool.
