One might say that making popcorn is an easy task, but if you’re a student at Kickapoo High School, you would realize that that is not the case. Students believe that if they press the popcorn button on the microwave, then in five minutes their popcorn will be perfect. But in reality, five minutes is way too long, and your popcorn will be burnt to a crisp. This is a step-by-step guide to making popcorn, and not burning it and setting off the fire alarm. First step, pick out the perfect popcorn bag; whether that be buttered or salted, the kind of popcorn is the most important process. Second, approach the microwave. Once you have gotten to the microwave make not to immediately click the popcorn button, no matter how tempting it may be. Third, open the popcorn bad and look at the instructions on the back of the popcorn and look at the cook time. Then lastly, place the bag in the microwave and type the time on the back of the bag into the microwave and voila! You should have perfectly cooked popcorn and the fire alarm shouldn’t go off.
