      Thanks so much for a great recipe, Lisa! I used a chip clip (all plastic, no metal) instead of staples, cause I was paranoid about metal in my microwave and it worked just fine. I also used spray butter on my popcorn instead of melted butter because it has 0 calories. I will be using this often! Thanks again for posting!

      What a snap! I did the butter spray and salt. Used Scotch tape to seal...no problem.Could re-use the bag.

      WOW! Just tried this and it worked perfectly and was so fast and easy! Mine was done in 2 minutes. I was going to go and buy a popcorn maker but now I don't have to. Thanks for sharing this.
