This is my favorite way to make popcorn! I don't bother with the staple, the bag will stay closed if you fold it over a few times. I top my popcorn with a few squirts of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray. This tastes so much better than store bought microwave popcorn and it's a lot cheaper.
Worked great! I didn't use a staple either, just folded the top of the bag over a couple of times.
Works great! Followed the directions using one staple. Made several batches, enough for Caramel Popcorn (Light). Mine took around 2 minutes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Loved it!! I've been meaning to try microwaving popcorn kernels forever, and I'm glad I finally did. I used 3 Tbsp, since that was listed as a serving on the container I used (Orville). I initially set my microwave for 1:30, but there were still so many unpopped kernels that I put it in for another half a minute, then another minute, but in the middle of that some of it started to burn so I just stopped... I have to figure out the perfect balance between the amount of popcorn and the time in the microwave!! I think I probably had a Tbsp worth of kernels left over. I added straight salt and shook it in the bag -- didn't use a staple either, just folded over the top a few times. Thanks for posting!
This was a hit with my granddaughters and son. I did not use a staple, just folded the bag and it worked fine. They all wanted butter on their popcorn. It tasted so much better than store bought microwave popcorn and more economical too! It took my popcorn about 1 min 20 sec to pop. Thanks for posting, it was fun and delicious activity for us. Sue
Great way to make popcorn. I followed the recipe as written and kept a close eye on it in the microwave so not to burn. Mine took about a minute and forty five seconds to cook. I didn't put a staple on the bag as I was worried about that. I used a plastic paper clip and that worked fine. We added butter and salt when done cooking. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
