Pinterest Tested: Pop Pop Popcorn!

Welcome to Pinterest Tested! Ever wonder if that miracle cleaner is really miraculous? Or what about that homemade facial cleanser? Does it work? This is the place to find out! Each Monday I am testing Pins that catch my eye to see if they really live up to the claims made on Pinterest. It's like the Mythbusters of Domesticity!

This week I am testing two coordinating Pins:

THE TEST: Does it work to pop popcorn in a brown paper sack in the microwave?

So this Pin says that you can just throw some kernels into a brown bag and pop them in the microwave without any oil, no air pop machine needed. I was skeptical, but my husband was even more skeptical. He swore this wouldn't work...something about the science behind popping and how you need to oil to make the kernels pop correctly. It took me some serious convincing to get him to even try it!

Guess what? It worked like a dream! And we've made several batches of popcorn lately... to test out the method, of course. Ahem.

THE RESULT: Perfect popcorn without any added oil---and it's much cheaper than buying popcorn in bags.

Now for the next Pin which will totally undo the benefits of popping the popcorn without any oil.

THE TEST: Marshmallow popcorn recipe. Any good?

Marshmallow Popcorn

Two brown paper sacks of popcorn (1/2 cup kernels)
1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 bag mini-marshmallows

Pop popcorn. Remove seeds. Melt butter, brown sugar and marshmallows in microwave. Stir well, then pour over popcorn. Enjoy a little bit of gooey marshmallow heaven!

THE RESULT: If Rice Krispie treats and caramel corn had a baby, this is what it would be. And the dangerous thing is that the ingredients are cheap and it only takes about ten minutes to make. What more could you want in a recipe?! Yummy!
