    My Private Note

    Units: US | Metric

    1. 1
      Place popcorn in a lunch sized brown paper bag.
    2. 2
      Fold the open end once and staple with ONE staple. (ONE staple will not effect your microwave).

      Microwave until the popcorn slows down popping. My microwave takes 1:50.

      Open carefully and pour into a bowl.

      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!
