A Happy New Year Snack

Want an easy, fun, and perhaps new (at least to this Sweet Pea mom) way to make popcorn with your little ones?

Take a small brown paper bag and fill it with about ¼ cup of popcorn. Close the top and fold down about a ½” twice. Place standing up, in your microwave and zap it for a few minutes on high. Just like regular microwave popcorn, stop when the pops are more than a second or two apart.

I was amazed at how easy and good this popcorn was to make. I spritzed some olive oil on it and sprinkled a bit of salt. YUM.

So there you have it…fun, delicious and a healthy snack. What could be better?

I'll definitely have to try that one. E loves popcorn (and so does A but there's that whole "choking hazard" aspect). But, microwave popcorn kind of icks me out after the whole cancer thing.

I hear you on the cancer thing. I promise you, this popcorn was so light and airy it was worth the extra 7 seconds of work to get it made.
