There isn’t much better at the movies than a bag of popcorn with that golden, salty, liquid fat poured throughout the bag. Artfully attempting to get every kernel, we push that damn button and try our best to get the butter down the gaps of the piles of popcorn. YUM. However, it is never as good when you are at home watching a movie. That doesn’t mean there aren’t good uses for popcorn. If you are forced to make microwave popcorn out of the bag, here are our recommendations:
1. Make it the Good ‘Ol Fashioned Way
There is something special about stove-top popcorn. It sounds different while it pops and it definitely tastes different from the microwavable popcorn. Add in that it is cooked with oil with melted butter on top and salt to your liking – I’ll take this any day.
2. Snickers Popcorn
Why bother with picking between popcorn or candy? Or for that matter, having them separately? Put them together. A sweet and salty mix to the max, this popcorn could probably make a meal.

3. Nutella Marshmallow Popcorn
Please tell me you at least tried popcorn dipped in Nutella. Add in marshmallow and you got me. Enough

4. Marshmallow Peeps Popcorn
Speaking of marshmallow…this may be the easiest recipe on here. Butter, peeps, popcorn.
5. Chipotle Almond Popcorn
Some people don’t have a sweet tooth. I don’t know how or why that would happen, but whatever. The Chipotle Almond popcorn gives a more refined take on popcorn and trail mix (minus the sweets, of course).
6. Popcorn Cake
I have no words. Truly. Everything good in life, added to popcorn. YUM
7. Jalapeno Popper Popcorn
Like I said, some jerks don’t like sweets. BUT, everyone likes bacon. Yes, bacon in popcorn, with a little bit of spice.
8. Peanut Butter and Fluff Popcorn
For the fans of the classic fluffernutter. Nothing wrong here.
9. Hot Chocolate Popcorn
This take on hot chocolate includes milk chocolate, white chocolate, marshmallows. It isn’t missing anything! Only thing I may change is melting the marshmallow rather than sprinkling on mini mallows.

10. Cheesy Crunch Popcorn
You didn’t think we’d forget about cheese, did you? Not cheese powder, but REAL cheese. Put the sodium bomb of shakeable cheese down and get out the real shit. You’re welcome.
