A good friend taught me this method a while ago and I love it, no need to get chemical and preservative filled store-bought microwave popcorn bags anymore. I even have a fancy popcorn machine that is collecting dust somewhere in the garage now.

Thanks for sharing, I had no idea you could use a brown paper bag.
My two love the Kernels Dill Pickle seasoning. A dash of that with some butter….very tasty.
Funny this is old school popcorn making like we did when microwaves first came out.
Thanks,that’s a neat tip!
Neat! This must be sooo much healthier then the packaged microwave popcorn.
Thanks for this recipe, I’ve just sent it to my daughter, her family eats popcorn regularly. 🙂
Looks like a great idea, and quick snack. A much healthier alternative to the store bought microwave popcorn.
fantabulous ! i have popcorn often (every weekend) it is my go to when the kids go to bed and i wanna enjoy a chick flick. i have never made my own tho! totally trying this.
I had no idea this was so easy!
Oh I’m definitely trying this. We love our popcorn.
I been doing this for a few years now, always works well! Don’t overcook though
Great idea! I didn’t know about this method.. So much better than the store-bought stuff full of junk! Thank you
I always forget that it’s just this easy! Thanks for reminding me! I have 2 bags left to use in the box then I will start on it this way – no chemicals! WHooohoo!!
Who knew this was possible? And a fun activity to try this weekend!
This sounds really cool… I’m going to need a brown paper bag. A BIG one.
this is an awesome idea, will have to try next movie night with my little guy!
I didn’t know this was possible! What a great alternative to other microwaveable popcorn, and something my daughter would enjoy helping with. 🙂
I will have to try this
This looks really good and I haven’t homemade popcorn in a long time which is bad because it tastes really good and it’s a healthier option for a snack
This is great to know. I usually break out the large pot for the popcorn then a dis for melting the butter and a batch of dishes. YUCK I do not have a dishwasher to hid them in so I have more dishes to was before I can go to bed. I hate to wake up to a mess.
This sounds so easy compared to the way my wife does it, she likes using Coconut Oil and a big popcorn pop with the stirring wand. It’s a real pain in the butt to clean all the time though. I think I will try this and see if she can be convinced.
I make popcorn like this all the time, great for single servings.
We’ve done this for years and SO simple (and cheap)
I still need to try this out and I really should, we go through a lot of popcorn here and it would be cheaper in the long run!!
I like that recipe. I really do not like buying the ready made microwave popcorn. This is really to do.
thanks I am going to try this next time I have popcorn
What a great idea! Love that everyone can have their own and no fighting over what’s left in the popcorn bowl.
Thanks for a great idea! 😀
My daughter has even has a popcorn machine, she has however said it doesn’t work well enough so she just makes it in the microwave.
Looks easy – I’ve never done it this way before!
This looks like a great way to make popcorn
I did not know you could make popcorn in a paper bag, too easy.
Wow great idea thanks for the tip this will be cheaper then buying it all the time.
Neat tip! I have never made it that way before. Popcorn is one of our favorite snacks.
Fantastic I make a lot of popcorn
The kids would enjoy this as a different way to make popcorn. We use the machine often but love to change it up!
Love this idea!! My kids would think this was so cool.
This makes it so simple. I use oil and do it in a pan, but this looks faster and better. Thank you.
This would be so much more healthy than the store bought microwave popcorn that I sometimes still buy.
This is brilliant and under the category “why didn’t I think of that?” . lol. Thanks for sharing. I love popcorn with a little grated parm cheese.
Can’t wait to try this healthy version of popcorn since I love it but find the microwave store bought options aren’t so healthy.
I didn’t know you could use a paper bag to make popcorn
