    More warm than spicy if you use the 1/4 tsp of cayenne. I used the recommendation to spray the bowl and spoon lightly with spray oil and it worked really well! I also used air-popped popcorn (quick and easy to clean up). Easy and totally tasty recipe!

    This is the greatest popcorn ever! It is always a hit. If you spray the bowl and the spatula your are going to mix in and stir with you will not have a sticky mess. And don't forget the parchment paper on the cookie sheets. Don't have any - get some! It saves you a lot of time cleaning.

    This is great, but never sticks around long enough. I have to hide it to keep my husband and kids from eating it all. I do the full 1/2 tsp. of red pepper and don't find it too spicy at all-even my kids love it. I've made it at least 5 times since the show aired-we love it! I also use salted butter as that's all I have and it still turns out great.

    I like to make it with soy nuts instead of peanuts. Also, it's easier and a lot less messy if you put the popcorn and the nuts on the pan and then pour the topping over top. The first time I made this mixing it in the bowl and there was a big sticky mess.

    This popcorn is so yummy and a great snack. I made it this morning for a craft get together that I attended. The cayenne pepper gives it a great kick. The heat will sneak up on you, so watch out! I only used 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper and it was definately enough for my taste.
