Buttery Theater Popcorn Recipe: Yes, You Can Make Movie Theater Popcorn at Home

What makes movie theater popcorn so darn good? We'll tell you! It's because they use a butter-flavored oil, so it doesn't get soggy. But you can get the same effect by using clarified butter on that popcorn. If you're staying home more now because of the pandemic, you don't have to miss out. Here's how to make theater-style popcorn at home.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 7 minutes


Here's how to make it:

  1. Pop the popcorn according to package directions.
  2. Melt the butter in a microwave. Set it on the counter and let it form into layers. Carefully skim off the top layer of foam and solids. Discard. 
  3. Drizzle the desired amount of clarified butter over the popped popcorn. We suggest about 3 tablespoons per 10 cups of popped popcorn. Save the rest in the refrigerator for later.
