DIY Microwave Popcorn Tips

Forget the chemical store bought microwave popcorn in a bag! It is not only more expensive than hot air popcorn but most brands are filled with unnecessary chemicals. Try our easy 1-2-3 tip for a YUMMY DIY Microwave “hot air” popcorn!

Tools and Ingredients You Will Need

  1. A Glass Microwave Safe Bowl (make sure it is a tempered glass bowl that can handle high heat)
  2. A microwave safe plate that fits snugly over the rim of your bowl
  3. 1/4  cup hot air popcorn kernels

Easy DIY Microwave Popcorn Directions

  1. Add 1/4 cup popcorn kernels to a bowl, put the lid on, microwave for 2  1/2 – 3 1/2 minutes until there are two seconds between pops.
  2. Remove lid from microwave with oven mitts
  3. Remove bowl from microwave with oven mitts

Eat plain or sprinkle your favorite Do You Bake? Popcorn Seasoning Blends!

Warning : Bowl and lid will get very hot. Use hot pads or oven mitts to remove bowl.

PS: You can also make DIY Microwave popcorn with a paper bag, but we found in our testing that more kernels go un-popped using a bag as compared to the bowl and plate method. We always are wary about using paper bags in the microwave because many will emit chemicals during the microwave cooking process.
