I’m not allowed to keep bags of popcorn kernels in the house. It’s a safety-comes-first type of rule. The temptation is just too great to pour them into a pot, heat it uncovered on the stove, and watch as the fluffy white morsels explode out and rain down on the kitchen floor.
Instead, I’m required to have adult supervision whenever I make a popcorn snack. No picking super small pots or hiding all of the lids. (Yes, I’ve tried…)
But after discovering this little microwave trick, I can cook all of the popcorn I want, all by myself! It’s practically foolproof and only takes 2 minutes to make a bowl of hot homemade popcorn. What are you waiting for—I’m already munching on mine!

⅓ c. popcorn kernels
1 paper bag (lunch bag size)
- Pour the popcorn kernels into the paper bag, and fold the top of the bag over twice. Lay the bag, sealed side down, in the microwave, and heat for 2 min. Be careful of the steam when opening the bag, and discard any unpopped kernels.
