So, you know how somedays you need a sweet treat but you don’t want to open the bag of Oreo cookies for fear of finding yourself with an empty bag 10 minutes later? Well, that is exactly where I found myself the other day. So into the pantry I headed….this is what I came up with, it is addicting. Maybe I should have stuck with the Oreo cookies!
It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s budget friendly!
What you need:
-1/4 Cup of whole popcorn kernels (unpopped)
-1 Tbsp of ground cinnamon
-1/4 Cup of white sugar
-1/2 Tbsp of butter
-1 brown paper lunch sack
Place 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels in the brown paper lunch sack.
Fold over the top – two or three times
Place bag in the microwave – cook for 2-3 minutes. Be sure to listen to the popping. Once the popping slows to about 10 second intervals, stop the microwave. Remove the bag. (you may not need the full 3 minutes – if you let it go until the microwave stops, you may end up with burnt popcorn and one smelly house!)
Pour popped popcorn into a large bowl.
Pour melted butter over the popcorn. Toss to evenly coat the kernels.
Sprinkle the buttered popcorn with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Toss until evenly coated.
