Homemade Popcorn

18 Sep

I saw this nifty little trick on Pinterest and decided I needed to try it.

I bought all these brown paper bags for baby shower I hosted this summer with some amazing DIY plans for them. But I ran out of time and didn’t use them.

So I thought, hey I love popcorn, I am cheap, pop corn kernels are cheap and this does not look like it would work. So because I wanted to test the powers of Pinterest, I tried to make my own popcorn – and it worked!

And this is what I did

1/3 cup popcorn kernels

Brown paper bags


And creativity

1/3 cup is enough for me, maybe a little less. Just put the kernels in the bag and pop. Just like normal popcorn listen to when the frequency of the popping stops and that’s when you need to pull it out.

I mixed the kernels with a little olive oil and salt to give it some flavor. I also added some garlic powder. But your options are limitless. You can make it sweet by adding cinnamon and sugar or melt some butter and pour it over. Whatever you want!

It’s fun, cheap and fast 🙂

      And so easy. Much healthier than the microwave bags – who knows what they put in there!

      I just folded the bag a few times. It worked just fine:)
