If you've never tried Hot Buttered O's before, do yourself a favor and do so. It'll be an easy snack you'll make for years to come. My husband introduced me to this recipe and we make it more than we make popcorn for movie time. FYI, I bake these, in a metal bowl, at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. During that time, I melt the butter and grab whatever seasonings I feel like. After I take them out of the oven, I pour half of the butter over the batch, toss thoroughly, repeat, then season.
