Step 1: Pop Popcorn/melt Butter
To save time I popped the popcorn and melted butter at the same time! The (in my case about 4-5 TABLESPOONS) butter melted (on a medium-low temperature in a small sauce pan) melted within 5 minutes, but the popcorn took 8 minutes because I had to do it in batches.

Step 2: Add Seasonings
to make this garlic popcorn live up to its name, we need garlic of course! along with a few other seasonings if you like! I'm using about a teaspoon and a half of garlic and onion powder. a pinch (or two) of ground cayenne pepper. Also, a good teaspoon of parsley flakes!

Step 3: Mix "sauce" With Popcorn
You know there is no easy way to do it. So just try to manage not to drop TOO much popcorn. I have a dog to help with anything that falls though! I just used a rubber spatula and did a folding motion to stir in the sauce.
