On a warm summer night, one of my favorite things to do is curl up on the couch with a good movie, a thin blanket, and a bowl of fresh popcorn.
To enjoy your popcorn in a healthier, cheaper way, you'll need to gather a few simple supplies: a jar of all-natural popcorn kernels, some butter, and a microwave-safe bowl and plate.
First, pour your kernels into your bowl. I didn't measure for this batch, but I tend to use about 1/4 cup of kernels.
Next, grab your butter. I'm using 2 Tbsp. here, but you can use as much — or as little — as you prefer.
After that, place your microwave-safe plate on top of the bowl. Set the butter on top of the plate.
Set the whole caboodle in your microwave, then cook it for about 2:45 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave's wattage).
The plate not only allows air and heat to circulate within the bowl, but it prevents the kernels from wildly escaping.
When all your kernels are popped, carefully remove the dishes. (They'll be pretty hot, so you might want to use oven mitts.) Your butter should be all melted, so drizzle it over your fresh popcorn.
Salt it to taste, maybe throw in a few M&Ms, and you're ready for movie night! Will you be trying this out at home? Let us know below!
