Sugar and spice and all things nice.. like popcorn

Popcorn may be our healthiest option when we're craving a crunchy sweet (or salty) snack, so here's a light treat to try that I think you all will enjoy while taking in the newest Harry Potter film.. or So You Think You Can Dance episode (depending on your tastes, both go well with it)

Cinnamon-Sugar Popcorn (with a Cayenne Kick)

**from (a very good blog I came across about a month ago, simply delish)

8 cups air-popped popcorn (popped in airpopper)
Butter-flavored or regular cooking spray
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
1 and 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Place popcorn in a large bowl. Lightly coat popcorn with cooking spray; toss well. Repeat the spraying and tossing one more time.

Combine sugar, cinnamon, salt, and cayenne in a small bowl. Drizzle popcorn with melted butter; toss well. Sprinkle with sugar mixture; toss well to coat. Makes 8 1-cup servings
