Favorite Family Movie-Night Snacks

When your family settles down to watch a movie together, what kind of snacks do you like to serve?

Do you stick with chips and popcorn, or does your family have a unique favorite?

We usually eat popcorn/pretzels/chips. Sometime we eat cheese & crackers. If it's dinnertime it's a cheese pizza(dinner & a movie).

We all need to help save our planet before it's too late

We eat popcorn, peanut/m&m mix, or corn chips with salsa.

Last year the home movie scene would have consisted of the usual popcorn, chocolate candies, and soda. More recently though it's popcorn (us), chips &/or cheese (us), dehydrated fruit snacks (me), tea (DH), splenda-Flavored decaf' coffee (me).

Sometimes we do veggies and dip, ring bolongie and cheese. We also like ice cream, tostitos and cheese of course popcorn.

We are trying to do healthier snacks as much as possible. So the veggie tray is good. The kids have to have ranch dip.
Have a wonderful day.

White Trash: 3 cups Golden Grahams Cereal, 3 cups Cheerios, 3 cups Rice Chex cereal, 3 cups Pretzel sticks. 1 bar White Almond Bark.
In a large bowl mix all the cereals and pretzel sticks together. In a microwave safe bowl, melt almond bark until melted and it is smooth when you stir it. Pour over the cereal mixture, toss to coat all the mixture. Lay out on the counter, wax paper. I use three long sheets, overlapping. Spread cereal mixture out on wax paper, spread mixture out into a fairly thin layer and let dry for an hour or so. Break mixture apart, place in a bowl to serve or put into a large container to store for later use.
This is very good and addictive.
