Check out this delicious, easy snack with step-by-step photos.
Just last week I showed teens – hands on – how to prepare meals and snacks on their own using only microwave ovens set up on a table in our very bare town library conference room.
We made microwave oven cooked French toast and microwave oven cooked s’mores and piled stuff like M&M’s, chocolate chips and even whipped cream and ice cream on top of both of them. And, in keeping with chocolate theme, we also made microwave-cooked popcorn with action, which, you bet, also included adding M&M’s.
Now, I will say – full disclosure – that after making the popcorn and adding every ingredient I had with me to it, the first few teens I offered it to were reluctant to give it a try. I know the deal. I used to see it in my own kids. With all the added ingredients, the popcorn sure looked different. But then one of the teens said she was willing to give it a try. So I poured some out into a plastic cup – yeah, I know – not environmentally friendly. She tried and liked it. As soon as that happened the other teens who’d said “no” at first now somewhat enthusiastically said they wanted some too. By the end of our time together, the big bag we’d made was all gone.
Below is a picture of the ingredients we used to make microwave oven popcorn with action, which is one of the practical, easy to make recipes available in a first-of-a-kind step-by-step picture book and video eBook called Dorm Room Food: Snacks, Sandwiches and Tortillas. The purpose of the book is to provide the quickest, easiest and most economical practical and fully flavorful help to as many students as possible.
