Homemade Kettle Corn -- In the Microwave!

Love this recipe!!! I got this recipe from:

and thought I would share! Super easy and super cheap snack. Hope you enjoy!

Microwave Kettle Corn
Serves 1

2 Tbsp. popcorn kernels
2 tsp. oil 
1 Tbsp. sugar or sugar substitute (I use 2 packets of Ideal)
Dash salt

  • Pour the kernels, oil, sugar and salt in a small bowl.  Mix until all kernels are well coated with sugar, salt, and oil.  
  • Pour the bowl's contents into the paper bag.  Place the bag on a plate and fold the top of the bag over 1" twice.  
  • Place in the microwave on popcorn setting or for about 1 minute, 15 seconds. Either way, shut off microwave when popping slows to less than a pop every second to avoid burning.
  • Open slowly and carefully, as steam will be hot.  

Healthy No-Fat Variation:  Omit oil and sugar.  Pour kernels and salt into bag.  Fold down top of bag 1" twice. Place bag in the microwave; no plate is necessary.  Microwave time will be significantly shorter with the absence of oil, so stand by and listen for popping to slow down.
