Candy Corn Popcorn Bags

Have you traded your microwave popcorn packs for brown bag popcorn yet? If not, you should!

Martha Stewart turned me on to brown bag popcorn a few years ago. And ever since, it's the only way we make it.

Just fill one brown paper bag with a quarter cup of kernels, crumple (pretty sure that's the official term) the top to seal the bag and put in the microwave for one minute. You'll have the best-tasting, fluffiest popcorn you've ever tasted.

So simple, and SO much better for you.

I decided to add a fun twist to our brown bag tradition, just in time for Halloween…

Candy Corn Popcorn Bags!

So easy to make they almost don't need a tutorial…

You'll need:

  • Tempera paint in yellow, orange, and white.
  • A medium sized paint brush
  • Brown paper bags (as many as you want to make)
  • Popcorn kernels
  • String
  • Gift tags (if desired)

Lie your paper bags side-by-side and paint one color stripe at a time (yellow on bottom, orange in the middle, and white on top). I kept each stripe the width of my paint brush, to make it easier.

Let dry, fill each bag with a quarter cup of kernels, then tie off with the string. And you're done.

Aren't they the cutest?

Perfect for healthy Halloween treats, party favors, or even gifts for teachers and friends.

Happy popping!
