Original Movie Snacks to Make at Home


What’s movie night without snacks? While popcorn’s a crowd pleaser and chocolate’s a go-to, sometimes you just want something a little…different.

Here’s a list of addictive, original movie snacks. Make these at home for your movie night and impress your family and friends.

1. Put a new spin on popcorn

 Ah popcorn. It’s cheap, easy to make, and delicious. But what if you could make popcorn even more mouth-watering?

 With these salted caramel popcorn bars, you’re in for a treat. These sweet, crunchy bites of goodness will transform your movie night into an event to remember. And if you want to go all out, add in some chocolate and marshmallow too.

2. Nuts about nuts?

Nuts go down a treat any way you have them. But this recipe will take your nuts to the next level. Brushed with sugar glaze coating and dusted with cayenne, paprika and Old Bay seasoning, these smoky candied almonds are easy to whip up. It’s pretty much the same recipe you use for barbecue ribs, just applied to almonds.

3. Savour this flavour

What’s more colourful than potato chips but equally as delicious? You guessed it: tomato chips. Swap out your movie night crisps for this sweet, tangy and original treat. Seasoned with herbs like oregano, basil and rosemary, and topped with parmesan, this alternative snack will put a new spin on movie night.

4. Chocolate what?

Salami. Chocolate salami. Yep, you read that right. No need for meat though, just pure sweetness in a salami-shaped log. This chocolate salami “sausage” is studded with crunchy biscuit.

5. Combine two classics

What would movie night be without a timeless classic… or two. Make some ice cream pizza and get two of your favourite treats rolled into one. This dessert pizza recipe takes a couple of hours to make, but the fudge and walnut covered results are totally worth it.

6. Freak shakes

A little harder to make, but if you’re up for the challenge, these freak-sized shakes will keep you snack-isfied all evening.

Simply blend together milk and ice cream, top with cream, and add the delectable toppings of your choice. From marshmallows to cupcakes, let your imagination go wild. Alternatively, pop in to your local Groove Train restaurant and we’ll make your delicious freak shake for you.
