I was at the grocery store the other day and this family was looking at all of the popcorn brands and yelling out to each other “OH! This one has butter flavor AND less than 100 calories!” “OH OH! BUT this one is almost a dollar cheaper!!”
Being the person I am, I spoke up and told them about my DIY recipe. If you know any popcorn brand that is cheaper and healthier than plain corn kernels, let me know.
Here’s how to do it:
Place 1/4 cup popcorn kernels into a brown lunch bag. Fold over the top and place into your microwave for about 3 minutes. (Once there is more than 1-2 seconds between each pop). This makes about 8 cups of popcorn.
