Make Your Own: Movie Night Popcorn Shaker Recipe

Angela Baxter6270 views

Our family loves movie night (yay for Netflix!) and since it’s such an important part of the movie- watching experience, I thought I’d share a yummy popcorn shaker recipe, perfect to add some zing to your kernels. It’s super easy and you only need a few ingredients.

You can try a variety of different herbs and spices depending on what you like, but I like good ol’ dill on my popcorn! Here’s what you need to make your own movie night popcorn shaker:

Popcorn Shaker Recipe

  • glass herb jar with perforated lid (in a pinch a salt or pepper shaker with larger holes will work)
  • 1 tbsp dry dill
  •  1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil (this gets drizzled on the popcorn before the shaker seasoning but doesn’t get mixed with the dry ingredients)

To make: mix the seasonings together and use a funnel to pour them into a shaker (great if you’re making larger batches). You can also simply sprinkle the seasoning mix with your fingers, tossing the popcorn as you do to distribute it.


I like to mix in some melted butter or coconut oil beforehand so the seasoning sticks to the popcorn and doesn’t just fall to the bottom of the bowl (the worst!). Serve in individual bowls or one large communal bowl for your family’s next movie night and enjoy!
