Kick back, pop on a movie and tuck in to these tasty snacks

At this time of year, as the weather cools, you’ll often find me spending my Sunday evenings snuggled up on the couch with a film and some tasty snacks to get cosy with. Nothing beats the feeling of a warm sofa and a good movie on an autumnal eve. If you like to do the same but would like some new ideas for things to snack on, I’ve got some delicious ideas for you.

Try out some of these tasty movie snack recipes:

easy-ice-cream-695x695Skip the store-bought pots of ice cream for a homemade option with this no-fuss ice cream recipe. It’s easier than you might expect. Get creative; test out different flavours, and share with your friends. (That’s if you can resist keeping this treat to yourself!).

marsh2These moreish dulce de leche marshmallows are a lighter option than your normal marshmallows, with a much more airy texture. Pair these love-heart-shaped bites with your favourite romantic comedy.

cucumber_crispsCrisps are one of my favourite snacks for a night in. I generally go for the cheap, salty variety. For a more gourmet option to accompany your movie nights, try my tasty dill & cucumber crisps with avocado dip. These little bites are nutritious and simple to make.

chocolate-medallions-683x1024If you’re a fan of sweeter films, like Willie Wonker & the Chocolate Factory or Chocolatthese chocolate medallions are a great way to bring your movie to life. Just try not too eat an entire plate in one sitting (I challenge you).


Love a cheesy film? Well perhaps you’d like a cheesy snack, too. Pop a tray of my cheese coins with figs in the oven. Experiment with your own blend of cheeses, if you like.

popcorn-450x450And of course, how could I forget the popcorn? These salted butter caramel popcorn clusters are taken from my column in the Evening Standard. See the full recipe, here.

Alright, so that’s your snacks sorted. (Your priorities are in order.) Now, you’re probably wondering which movie to watch.
