Breakfast Popcorn

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by ladypit

My 6 year old and I read Tomie De Paola's "The Popcorn Book" again yesterday. There is lots of neat information about popcorn in this book, including historical info. One thing mentioned is that "The colonists liked it so much that they served popped corn for breakfast with cream poured on it." So, being the adventurous parent that I am (*LOL*), we decided to try it. This is written for 1 serving. We tripled it so both kids and myself could try it. Honestly, we thought it was really good!

I was worried when, after I chose this recipe in the recipe Tag game, that I might not like wet popcorn. Well I loved it! I used regular sugar and regular half and half. YummmmmmmmY!!!! I will definetly be having it agai. Maybe not for breakfast but whenever we have popcorn! Thanks for posting this ladypit!!!
