Guest Blog: Lauren's Quick & Easy Popcorn

Our first guest blog from Lauren! Lauren also helped with the Red Velvet Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting.

Since I’ve made multiple guest appearances on the blog it was about time I made my own guest blog post. I heard about this recipe from a friend and will most likely never buy microwave popcorn again! This is a good alternative and has no chemicals or additives like store bought popcorn.
 

Ingredients
  • 3 tbsp unpopped popcorn kernels
  • olive oil or non stick cooking spray
  • brown paper bag
  • scotch tape
  • seasoning of choice

Directions
  • In a regular sized brown paper bag measure out about 3 tablespoons of unpopped popcorn kernels.
  • If you want, add seasoning after spraying kernels for one second with olive oil spray or nonstick cooking spray so that seasoning sticks. ( warning the bag will look very greasy but the popcorn will not turn out greasy, I promise)
  • Fold down the bag one or two times and scotch tape it shut. Microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. If not all popcorn is popped you can easily remove the finished popcorn and continue popping the rest of the kernels
  • At this point you can add liquid ingredients like melted butter, chocolate, caramel etc.
This is a convenient, cheaper and healthier way to have popcorn anytime you want.
