Stupidly Easy Game-Changing Popcorn Hack

Mess-free microwave popcorn is made possible with one easy kitchen hack.

Whether it’s a movie date night or a solo all-day Netflix binge, popcorn is the right snack for the job. And while you could make your own popcorn on the stovetop, flavored with all kinds of healthy herbs and spices, sometimes the thing you crave most is a bag of microwave popcorn filled with buttery (flavored) goodness. No judgment. Here’s a simple way to make an easy snack even easier.



Turn that bag of popcorn into its own serving bowl. When the bag is cool enough to handle, cut out a square window in the larger, flat side of the bag. That’s it. This trick is so simple we can’t even really call it a hack.
