Crunchy pepper caramel popcorns

Please dont think I am throwing a short cut option here. My son really loves the popcorn and I just want to keep his interest alive in the easy to make popcorns for long. S I keep playing with the flavors of popcorn.
I personally love caramel popcorn especially in the freezing cold multiplex theatres. DH hates them equally, he feels it kills the crunchiness of the popcorn. I agree with him coz, after a while the moisture from the sugar syrup does seep into the crunchy popcorns and kills the flavors eventually.
Thus, I thought of making the baked popcorns primarily for my son but eagerly looking for my DH's approval.

1 cup Corn kernels dried
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp Brown sugar
1 tspn black pepper powder
salt to taste
1 tspn lemon juice
1) In a small pan, melt the butter and add the sugar with little water and let it caramelize.
2) Take it off the heat and let it stand.Also add the lime juice to it.

3) Pop the corn kernels using a pressure cooker or microwave.(Ask me if you need help)
4) Add some salt and pepper and mix well.
5) On a baking dish, spread the popcorn and pour the sugar syrup mixture and mix well.
6) Bake it for 15 min at 180 degrees. Keep a watch. Else microwave (+convection) for 3 min on high.
7) Let it stand. Break apart to form seperate corns.

Serve and watch it disappear.
