Spicy Korean Barbecue Popcorn

8 cups popcorn

1/4 cup honey

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp gochujang (Korean chili paste)

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp garlic powder

4 tsp toasted sesame seeds

1 tbsp gochujaru (Korean chili flakes)

1 green onion, thinly sliced (optional)

Place popcorn in large bowl.

In small saucepan, combine honey, brown sugar, butter, sesame oil, gochujang, soy sauce and garlic powder; bring to boil. Cook 3-5 minutes, or until mixture thickens to syrupy consistency.

Drizzle honey mixture over popcorn and sprinkle with sesame seeds and gochujaru; toss to evenly coat. Garnish with green onion, if desired. Serve immediately or cool completely.

Tip: Substitute green onion with 1 teaspoon freeze-dried chives, if preferred.
