A movie night is never complete without the yummiest and most sinful snacks. If you have no idea what snacks to prepare for your next movie night, here’s a list of popular movie night snacks to spark off some ideas.
Vegan ice cream
Ice-creams are the best snacks and desserts especially in a hot country like Malaysia. Even Wonder Woman herself loves eating ice-cream every now and then. If you aren’t able to get a tub of ice-cream in time for movie night, you can quickly whip up a vegan ice-cream yourself the day before with the recipes on Google.
Popcorns are easy enough to make thanks to microwaveable ones but you can always make it better. Popcorns can be drizzled with the topping of your fancy such as the usual salted caramel, cheese or plains alt and butter.
However, you can make it even more unique by making S’mores Popcorn. To make this sinful batch of snacks, you just need to mix in broken graham crackers, broken chocolate bars, M&Ms, mini marshmallows, peanut butter chips and sunflower seeds with the popped popcorn.
Another hit crowd-pleaser is the penultimate French fries. Other than ordering fries from the closest fast-food restaurant, you can easily make good ones yourself at home. The cut potatoes can be air fried or oven-baked to perfection and then drizzled with the toppings of your choice. Just think of layering the gooey and yummy cheese over the fries right before it’s served!
Chocolate banana dips
Just because you’re opting to eat healthy, it doesn’t mean you can’t have snacks. It’s easy to make chocolate-dipped bananas too. First, cut the bananas into halves before sticking craft sticks into each banana. Freeze them until firm for at least an hour.
Once it’s firm, dip these bananas in melted chocolate and sprinkle with the toppings of your choice such as toasted almonds or flaked sea salt. Freeze the chocolate-dipped bananas again for about 20 minutes until firm.
Nachos and dips
The beauty of serving nachos with dips is that it’s easy for sharing and it’s even yummier if everyone gets to dip in different dip flavours. Some of the nachos dips such as guacamole, hummus, cheese and tomato salsa are yummy favourites. If those flavours bore you, it’ll be fun to make some of your own too such as spinach or beef queso.
Crunchy popcorn chicken
Crunchy popcorn chicken is easy to binge on and is also perfect as a light dinner. These bite-sized pieces can go well with a lot of sauces too. For something different, try making your own sauce such as the chipotle aioli. All you need to do is to mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, tomato paste, salt, garlic powder and paprika together in a bowl.
A snack board
A snack board may sound like a rush job but it will have something for everyone. If you can’t decide what to serve on movie night, gather a few of everyone’s favourites such as chips, fruits, cookies, cheese slices, nachos, chicken wings and more.
