For a sweet and spicy treat that can be made in a snap, this one can't be beat. If you want an easy shortcut, purchase popped popcorn instead of popping it yourself.
- Cook and stir butter or margarine, curry powder, ginger, cumin, allspice, and red pepper in a small saucepan until butter or margarine melts. Cook and stir 1 minute more.
- Combine popcorn, peanuts, and dried fruit bits in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle butter or margarine mixture over popcorn mixture, tossing gently to coat evenly. Makes 5-1/2 cups.
