Tonight I'm going to share with you a post from my main blog.
I got this idea from a Nutritionist friend of mine and I'm so glad she shared it because I had no idea how easy it was to make microwave popcorn at home without all that added nastiness they add to the store bought kind.
I wish I had found out about this before, I did a google search and found quite a few other posts about it. I always feel like the last one to join the cool club LOL
Anyway, here we go:
All you need are brown paper lunch bags, popcorn kernels and tape.
Place a 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels in each bag. You can add toppings after it's done, but I tried garlic, salt and some with sugar mixed in with the kernels and it turned out great :)
Take a small piece of tape and fold over the top of the bag, tape it in place.
Fold the bottom part up about halfway.....
Then fold down the top part over it, you will have it folded in thirds, the same as the store bought bags.
I made some quick labels in photoshop, printed them all out on a sheet of paper, cut them out and used some double sided tape to attach them to the bags.
Added a bit of twine just for decoration and VOILA!
I will no longer be buying the store bought kind. Besides, I am thinking these would make pretty cute gifts with different kinds of labels, and flavors.
You should have seen the kids faces. They think I'm Super Woman which is pretty funny considering how easy these are to throw together :)
