10 best movie night snack ideas
When you’re hosting a movie night, you need the best snacks on hand. Are you tired of popcorn and candy? Relive your childhood with this movie marathon of decadent snacks you can’t resist.
1. Potato pieces wrapped in bacon with spicy cream sauce
Never has there been a more reliable pairing than potatoes and bacon. This recipe ups the ante with a spicy sour cream sauce on the side. Diets are overrated anyway!
2. Corn Dog Pops
Satisfy your inner child and all those carnival cravings with these American Mini Corndogs. Dipping sauce is easy because the corndog tastes great with just ketchup or mustard.
3. Pepperoni Pizza Rolla
As a child, nothing accompanied movie nights as often as pizza rolls. Here we can pretend to be adults with pepperoni pizza rolls. Replace the pepperoni with prosciutto or mushrooms for a stylish option.
4. Salmon nachos
Nachos are a staple at any social event, but we bet you’ve never tried salmon nachos. Think fish tacos meet nachos for this delicious fusion that uses omega-3 rich salmon and all the fixin’s.
5. Onion bread
Blooming onions are another fairground favorite that evokes nostalgia in the best of us—traditionally, they’re fried onions that pop open at the fillet so you can pick like onion rings. This version takes all that goodness and packs it into a cheesy sourdough bread.
6. Jelly with champagne
No movie night is complete without the perfect alcoholic beverage. Grown-up meets college fun in these champagne jello, made with ginger ale, champagne, lemon, sugar, and gelatin.
7. Baked Jalapeno Poppers
Jalapeños are the tastiest movie snack, but they’re full of calories and bad-for-you ingredients. This baked version is just as delicious, easy to eat, and even keto-friendly.
8. Brie and potato patties
Puff pastry pies of any kind are always a smash hit at any event and for good reason – they are mouth-watering morsels! This savory French-style pie combines potatoes and creamy Brie cheese – now go look at Amélie!
9. Korean beef bulgogi tacos
They can be a little messy for movie night, but totally worth it. In these tacos, the saltiness comes from the soy sauce and sesame oil, while the Asian pear adds sweetness to the juicy beef bulgogi.
10. Snacks with fried spinach and artichoke
Spinach and artichokes have been around for years as a hearty party dip—it’s versatile enough to go with bread, chips, or croutons—but this recipe minimizes the risk of spilling the sauce. Fried in breaded orancini-style balls, your movie-going guests might want to take some home in their pockets.
