  1. In a heavy saucepan, combine brown sugar, corn syrup, water, butter and pumpkin pie spice. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Reduce heat and gently boil, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer reaches 285 degrees F (syrup separates into hard, but not brittle, threads when dropped into very cold water).
  3. Gradually pour over popcorn, tossing to coat evenly.
  4. Spread out on a lightly buttered cookie sheet.
  5. Cool and break into small pieces.
