Day 71: Baked Popcorn

Popcorn is such a great thing, I bet practically everyone agrees with me there. There are also many kinds or popcorn out there, stale, crispy, hot chocolate (yes it's a thing), but the best kind for me, is movie popcorn. For years I've wondered how do they make it so good? But today I finally found a way so it tastes just like movie popcorn. You can Bake it.

There are 3 steps to this popcorn goodness!!!

  1. Microwave it in a paper bag folded over two times. There should be about 5" of open space.

2. Toss with butter, oil, and salt. Note: The salt can vary. Just keep on tasting to make sure it's good.

3: Bake for 3-5 minutes. For me it was 4 minutes.
