    If using cold butter, you can slice the butter and just place them on the top.
    If you are using melted butter, you can directly stir in with the corn but the melted butter will solidify fast so it may be sligtly difficult to stir in.
    When using melted butter, you can use the spoon to break the solidified butter clusters and then stir well.
