We LOVE making our own 100-calorie packs, so we decided to follow up our DIY email from awhile back with these new recipes. Make 'em, and revisit our original email to create your own!

HG FYI: When making your mixes, it's better to evenly distribute ingredients among the bags/containers and then mix 'em, as opposed to mixing them in one big bowl and then distributing the mixture. This way, you'll get an even amount of each ingredient in each serving (which means more accurate nutritionals)!

Another HG FYI: Those bags of microwave popcorn don't always yield the amount of popped corn indicated on the box. (A bunch of the kernels often remain unpopped.) So make sure you have extra bags on hand.
