Anyways, I’ve been meaning to make my own popcorn for a while now…I was so shocked at how easy it is!! Seriously, you must make this if you’re a popcorn fan because it look me less than 5 minutes. Including cooking time! And maybe eating time…;)
(adapted from Frugal Homemaking)
(Serves one, or two if you’re nice)
2 Tbsp. popcorn kernels
2 tsp. oil
1 Tbsp. sugar (I use 3 packets of Equal)
Brown paper lunch bag
- Pour the kernels, oil, sugar and salt in a small bowl. Mix until all kernels are well coated with sugar, salt, and oil.
- Pour the bowl’s contents into the paper bag. Fold the top of the bag over 1″ twice.
- Place in the microwave on popcorn setting or for about 1 minute, 15 seconds. Either way, shut off microwave when popping slows to less than a pop every second to avoid burning.
- Open slowly and carefully, enjoy!
