Honeyed Popcorn and Peanuts

1   3 1/2-oz package low-fat microwave popcorn OR
        1/2 cup popcorn kernels, popped by your favorite method
1 1/2 cups roasted salted peanuts 
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Prepare popcorn and place in a large bowl.   Add peanuts and stir to mix.

In a 1-cup microwave-safe measuring cup, combine butter, honey and cinnamon.   Microwave on high until butter is melted (30 seconds to 1 minute). 

Drizzle butter mixture slowly over the popcorn, stirring with a large spoon.   Taste and salt lightly if necessary.  Serve immediately while still warm.

If you make this treat ahead of time, you may warm it for 1 to 2 minutes in the microwave.

Makes 5 to 6 cups.

Note: never serve popcorn or peanuts to a child under 3 years old.  They can choke on it.
