What is the perfect snack for Super Bowl Sunday? Something salty? (Check.) Spicy? (Yes.) Sweet? (Uh, sure.) Something served in a bowl that must be eaten by the handful? Absolutely!

Since I am rooting for the Saints—two years in New Orleans did a number on me—I have created recipe that will definitely please you and your Saints fans. Colts supporters: you can take a few handfuls too.

This is super easy to make especially if you use microwave popcorn, and it's truly addicting. But don't be fooled—the caramel corn may not seem too spicy at first, but it will certainly sneak up on you. Just like the Saints will in the fourth quarter.
