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.
You can also purchase ready-made movie theater style butter for your popcorn in a sauce form at the grocery store. Use coconut oil to make your popcorn on the stove, which gives you the unique movie theater flavor and aroma. Make sure to cock the lid on the pan to let the steam out and prevent the popcorn from getting soggy. Let the popcorn cool for 1 to 2 minutes before adding the butter when making it in this manner to prevent the popcorn from getting soggy as well. Movie theaters use powdered salt instead of table salt which has the texture of flour. This helps the salt stick to the popcorn instead of collecting at the bottom of the bowl. Make your own by putting the salt through a blender.
