You’ve clocked out from work, gathered together the comfiest seats in the house, and stocked up on everyone’s favorite drinks. Movie night is on!
Is it really a movie night if you don’t have movie night snacks? We think not.
If you’re tired of dumping bags of chips into a giant bowl, step up your snacking game with these ideas.
Great Ideas for Movie Night Snacks
Snacks are among the cornerstones of any great movie night, whether your movie is a Blu-Ray, an online rental, or a feature on an IPTV channel. What is IPTV, you ask? It’s the latest cable-free way to watch live TV.
Anyway, no matter where your movie comes from, complement it with these great snacks.
Mexican Spiced Hot Chocolate Popcorn
We all know that popcorn is THE classic movie snack, but all that butter gets old. If you want to mix it up, try this unique Mexican spiced hot chocolate popcorn.
This dish is so full of flavor that none of your guests will realize how healthy it is.
Italian Breadstick Twists
This is one of those easy snacks that impresses everyone. It’s a fun twist on traditional Italian cooking…literally.
Make your own pizza dough or buy some from the store. Cut it into strips about an inch side.
Twist each strip so it looks like a loose spiral on a non-stick pan. Brush each strip with melted butter. Sprinkle on some minced garlic and oregano before popping the oven.
When the strips are golden brown, pull them out and toss them onto a platter. Put a bowl of marinara sauce in the middle for dipping and you’re ready to press “play.”

We listed a popcorn recipe above, but what if you want a sweeter option and eating healthy isn’t your top priority?
