This is a great alternative to buying those grease filled bags. It really works.

I had mixed results with this recipe. We loved the flavor of the popcorn but most of my corn didn't pop and I had to stop the microwave because I could smell it start to burn. Maybe it could have been my kernels but I'll definitely try this one again. Made for Zaar New Kids on the Block Tag Game 2011.
