Brown-Bag Popcorn

You are not going to believe this until you try it! But it can totally be done, and here is the proof! I didn't even imagine that you could make your own microwave popcorn. This makes a great snack with lower cholesterol. So easy to make! You don't have to pull out the popcorn popper- very little mess! It makes the perfect amount for my kind of single serving-- or for me and the kids to munch on!

Brown-Bag Popcorn (Family Circle)
Mix 2 tablespoons popcorn kernels, 1 teaspoon canola oil, and a dash of salt in a small bowl. Place mixture in a brown paper lunch bag and fold down twice. Cook in microwave on high 2-3 minutes, until there are a few seconds between pops. Makes about 4 cups.

Note: I am adding a few details they maybe should have included. When you are "placing mixture" into the brown bag, put it close the the bottom. Also, I would fold and tape your bag shut (masking tape) otherwise the popcorn flies out. I would also suggest adding the salt after because pretty much it just ends up in the bottom of the bag. And it needs just about 2 minutes on high- maybe just under. But all things considered- I think it is brilliant. I'm so glad there are people in this world who come up with stuff like this! :)

This is PERFECT! I hate normal microwave popcorn, and the kids would have so much fun making this. Thanks!
