Movie Night Treats! 

I am a snacker.  I absolutely love to snack.  It’s a serious problem.  I want something savory and then I want something sweet and then I want something savory.  It’s a vicious cycle!  If you suffer from something similar to me, I am here to help.  I have come up with four yummy treats to snack on while watching a movie or doing homework!  I have two sweet and two savory options!  Or you can create all four like I did!  They are a great mix and I love all four!

Something Savory: Cajun Pretzels!

These are sooooo delicious and if you love a little spice you are going to love these!  They make a ton so you can save these for snacks through out the week or give them out to friends!

What you’ll need!

1/2 cup canola oil

1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper

2 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning

1 packet of hidden valley ranch packet

1 16oz bag of small pretzel twist

First heat oven to 250 degrees!

Mix the oil and the dry ingredients into a small bowl.  Then in a separate big bowl pour in your bag of pretzels.  After the oil mixture is mixed together pour it over the pretzels and toss until all are coated evenly!  

Once they are coated line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the seasoned pretzels out and place in the oven for 30 minutes!  

(Currently listening to Justin Timberlake station on pandora) Make sure to have a little dance party as you take your pretzels to the oven!

Make sure to shake them around a bit about every 10 minutes!

Sometimes the cute little begger at your feet deserves a taste as well!  These pretzels were quick, easy, and so savory!
Something Sweet: Frozen Grapes!

I love washing some grapes picking them off the vine and popping them into the freezer for few hours!  They are a great frozen treat on a summer night and not to mention super simple and healthy!

Something Savory: Chili Lime Popcorn!

This popcorn is super scrumptious!  Here is what you will need!

1/4 cup kernels

4 tbsp of canola oil

1/2 tsp of chili powder

Juice and zest of one lime

And salt as needed

Pop your popcorn!  Then is a separate small sauce pan mix 2 tbsp of canola oil, the chili powder, and the lime juice!  Once simmering mix and turn off!  Place your popcorn in a bowl and pour mixture on top and mix or shake!

Add a bit of salt and lime zest and you are all set!

This stuff is dangerously addictive!  You’ve been warned!
Something Sweet: Chocolate Peanut butter Banana Bites!

Okay y’all, this one was a bit messy but pretty good!  This is a great alternative to a candy bar if peanut butter and chocolate is your thing!

What you’ll need!

2 bananas sliced

Peanut butter

Dipping chocolate

Slice your bananas to desired thickeness and spread peanut butter on one side.  Stack like a sandwich.

Learn from my mistakes and either use a fork or a toothpick and dunk half of your banana sandwich into the chocolate and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper!

Freeze for around 2 hours and enjoy!

Now it’s time to enjoy a great movie with some tasty snacks!  Have y’all seen Hidden Figures?  If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it!  Such a great inspirational story!

Okay y’all, I want to hear from you!  What is your favorite movie snack?  Do you prefer savory or sweet?  Or are you like me and enjoy a bit of both?  Thanks for stopping by!  XOXO 😘
