Movie nights are not the same with popcorn! Whip up this delicious sweet Raspberry & Vanilla Popcorn in the microwave in just 3 minutes. No oil needed!
Nothing beats a big bowl of delicious warm popcorn and snuggling up on the sofa to watch your favourite family movie. But making your own popcorn on the stove can sometimes seem like a bit of a faff – especially when, like me, you end up burning it and ruining a good pan!
But did you know that you can make your own popcorn at home in a brown paper bag in the microwave? It is so simple, takes just a couple of minutes and you don’t even have to use any oil. How good does that sound?! I first wrote about this method in this How To Make Microwave Popcorn in a Brown Paper Bag post earlier this year and I’ve since been experimenting with lots of different flavours and varieties.
We are loving this Raspberry & Vanilla version at the moment. The honey gives it a lovely sweet taste and the vanilla adds so much flavour. I love using freeze dried raspberries as it’s a great way to get that delicious raspberry flavour all year round and for a fraction of the cost of fresh raspberries.
