Spicy Caramel Popcorn~I mean diet wrecking popcorn

After loving the spicy chocolate so much, and  I came across this recipe for spicy caramel popcorn I knew I just had to try it.  Wow-Wee is this good stuff!  I took it to a super bowl party and it seemed to be a hit.

Unfortunately, on a whim (kind of) I decided to try Weight Watchers (I didn't actually join, but am counting points...boy is that eye opening!) last week to hopefully help me rid of those last 10 pounds plaguing me since having 4 babies in a row.  This popcorn did not help my efforts!!  However, on a side note, it's going well and not that hard (especially since I left the bulk of the leftover popcorn at my friend's house who had the party).  :)

Details regarding the recipe:  I used the 3/4 tsp of cayenne pepper and only 1 tsp of sea salt.  I also in vain tried to make it slightly lower fat and used my Orville Redenbacher's Smart Pop microwave mini bags.  Four mini bags and the cup of peanuts seemed to be just right for the amount of caramel made.  This makes a large party sized amount of caramel popcorn.

This would make a great Valentines present too!  I almost made a batch of these for the kid's teachers, but K wanted to decorate cookies instead.  :)
