Ingredients

  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 1/2 cup dry-roasted, lightly salted peanuts
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 300ºF. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Combine popcorn and peanuts on baking sheet.
  2. 2. Mix brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in a small pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil without stirring for 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in baking soda. Quickly pour caramel over popcorn and peanuts; toss with 2 rubber spatulas or spoons. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring twice.
  3. 3. Place chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium heat in 10-second bursts, stirring in between, until almost melted, 40 to 50 seconds total. Stir in cayenne and cinnamon. Transfer to a ziplock bag, cut a small hole in a corner and drizzle chocolate over popcorn. Let stand until set, 3 to 4 hours. Break into pieces and serve.
