9 All-You-Can-Eat Healthy Snacks - Avoid the bagged kind! Air-popped popcorn is easy to make at home on your stove or microwaved in a paper bag. You can sprinkle it with popcorn seasoning for more taste, but I prefer to eat mine plain. If you’re craving sweet, not savory, sprinkle with cinnamon and a dash of sugar. Best of all? It only has 33 calories per popped cup.
Glass bowl + ceramic plate + popcorn kernels = perfectly popped popcorn in microwave. No bag. No butter or oil. Nothing to throw away afterward. And no un-popped kernels. Put 1/4 cup dry popcorn kernels in microwave-safe glass bowl (pyrex is a great choice). Place microwave-safe plate on top of bowl. Plate should be wide enough to go beyond rim of bowl. Microwave 2 min 45 sec. gm

Party Time Cake Batter Popcorn - or as a friend calls it "that sinful, addictive stuff". I am always asked for the recipe. For Christmas I used a plain white cake mix and then added red and green sprinkles. I also adjust the recipe so it's not quite so sweet. 12 cups popcorn, 7 squares almond bark, 1/8 cup oil, 1 cup cake mix. Once you start, it's hard to stop.
