If you have got a huge group of people coming over for a night of movies and munchies, you will be better off using the hot air popper to make large bowls of popcorn.
But if you have only a small number of people coming over, you can make your own gourmet popcorn in a paper bag in the microwave and put exactly what each person wants on it.
Microwavable popping corn
Brown paper lunch bags
A ½ cup measuring cup
caramel sauce, and so on

Image 1-Assemble your ingredients
Image 2- Put 1/2 cup of popcorn in each bag.
Image 3-Fold the top of the bag over twice, creasing it tightly.
Image 4- Place the popcorn, one bag at a time, in the microwave. Put on your high setting, NOT the popcorn setting, for about 2 minutes, or until the duration between pops is longer than one second. Avoid leaving in too long, as the corn can start to scorch.
Image 5-Carefully open the bag, avoiding burns from the hot steam, and add your preferred toppings. Close the bag and shake well to distribute all the seasonings.
Image 6- Once all your bags are ready, you can serve.
Helpful hint: If you have a large group, write each person’s name on the bag so that they don’t get mixed up, especially if it is a child’s party and they tend to be a picky eater. This is also a must if they have any food allergies.
Other serving suggestions to add variety:
Personal popcorn bags are fun, easy and make any occasion special without spending a lot on snacks. Best of all, popcorn is a whole food, so you are getting plenty of antioxidants, fiber and other nutrients.
