All this cold weather just makes me want to stay inside and have a snack and either read or watch a movie. The perfect snack choice for me is popcorn! You can dress it up to be either sweet, salty or savory. With Honeyville Popcorn and a brown paper lunch sack you can make your own microwavable popcorn lickety-split!
1/4 cup Honeyville Yellow Popcorn
1/2 tsp Coconut Oil, optional
Any additions you'd like for toppings: salt, melted butter, etc.
Put the popcorn in the brown paper lunch sack (and coconut oil if desired). Tightly fold over the top approximately 1 inch.
Repeat fold three times. Place in microwave with the bottom of the bag face down.
Cook about 1 minute 15 seconds. Listen to the popcorn and when you hear the pops start to die down and the space between pops is a couple of seconds, the popcorn is done. I think it is better to have a few unpopped kernels rather than burnt popcorn! If desired top with any additional flavorings.
Not everyone in my family agrees on flavors of popcorn--extra buttery, no butter, add milk duds, or just salt, etc. This way we can all enjoy a quick and easy snack but each have our own bag (or bowl!) without having to buy each variety at the grocery store-which saves me money and pantry space! Another thing I love about this shortcut is that while I love food and eating, I hate the smell of food afterwards. To me the worst smell is hot oil/fried smell. Not cooking popcorn the old fashioned way on the stove top, I eliminate the lingering oil smell! I am a very happy girl!
