MIDWAY, FL - It's National Popcorn Day and it turns out the key to a perfectly popped bag of popcorn starts before you press the preset button on your microwave.

Are you looking for especially fluffy popcorn? Microwave a glass bowl of water beforehand to raise the humidity level inside the microwave.

It's also a good idea to man the microwave. Stick by your popcorn so that you can pull it out of the oven when the sound of popping kernals starts to slown down. That way, it's never overcooked.

Now that you know a few tricks about creating the best popcorn, let's celebrate.

Today on Sunrise, the team celebrated many's favorite movie snack by making sweet, popcorn balls.

Here's what you need: popcorn, butter, Jell-O powder and marshmellows.

You stir a ball of gelatin powder in melted marshmellows (a full bag) and add the popcorn to form balls.

Caution, you will have sticky hands after this!
