How to Make Movie Butter for Popcorn. There's not need to sacrifice flavor when making your own popcorn at home. If you love the taste of movie style popcorn but can not figure out how to replicate it, the following steps will help you.
Things You'll Need
Place the desired amount of real stick butter in a pan under low heat.
Heat the butter until you see the butter begin to separate.
Skim the butter off the top of the melting butter as it is melting. This removes it from the water in the butter, which tends to make popcorn soggy.
Pour off the watery content of the butter and continue to melt it until it is in liquid form.
Drizzle the pure butter onto your popcorn and salt to taste.
