Movie night's are probably one of my favorite pass times, which is why I decided to make a list of the best snacks for movie nights with the girls. I enjoy watching movies with my husband, my family and my friends. But there's just something so fun about movie night with the girls! Get together a few great friends, a chick flick, some yummy food and throw in a few cozy blankets and bottles of nail polish and you've got yourself a real fling going! But do you ever have a hard time deciding which are the best snacks? You want to pig out, but at the same time you don't want to gain 50 pounds. Well, I've taken the liberty of putting together a list of 9 best snacks for movie night with the girls! Please keep reading for some awesome ideas!
1. Fruit and Dip
Fruit is a sweet treat, and especially exotic fruits! Cut up a few of your fave fruits and arrange them in a pretty pattern on a plate. I would suggest pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberries, grapes, bananas, mango and kiwi. You can make a fruit dip to go with it very easily. Simply mix 1 pack of cream cheese, 1 container of marshmallow creme and a few drops of vanilla. Put it in a small bowl and place it in the center of the fruit and voila! You've got it!
2. Caramel Popcorn
What kind of movie night would it be if you didn't have popcorn? But add a twist to the regular old stuff. Drizzle caramel over the popcorn for a sticky sweet snack! Your caramel popcorn will be a huge hit with the girls. It's one of the best snacks for movie night with the girls. Don't forget cute little bowls to put it in!
3. Double Fudge Brownies with Ice Cream
Ok, here come all those calories I was talking about. But it's ok to splurge on yourself every now and then, right? Come on, you had a hard week, you deserve it! So make a big bunch a double fudge brownies and grab a carton of cold vanilla ice cream to top them off with. Mmmmmm, my mouth is watering already!
4. Pina Coladas
Pina coladas are super easy to make and so yummy-liscious! You will be in a little piece of heaven as you sip on one of these babies! Toss a cup of pineapple juice, 1/2 a cup of water, 1/3 a cup of coconut mix and a few scoops of ice cream into a blender. You can add a few ice cubes if you like. Blend for a few minutes or until desired consistency. I like to add a few drops of vanilla, lime and coconut flavoring to mine too. Top off with whipped cream and a cherry!
5. Oreo Truffle Balls
Ok, you are about to discover chocolate in a whole new light! You have never tasted anything as rich and yummy as these Oreo balls. This is my secret recipe for those family gatherings. Take one pack of Oreos and crush them up. I use a wooden spoon or a rolling pin and do it in a bowl. Next, mix in one pack of cream cheese. Roll this mixture into balls, (it can get messy!), dip them into melted chocolate and then refrigerate for a few hours until hard. Warning: You will be addicted!!
6. Chips and Salsa
Chips and salsa are a great go-to and one of the best snacks for movie night with the girls. You can choose from a range of different flavors and textures of salsa or even make your own if you're feeling adventurous! I love to mix a few teaspoons of sour cream with spicy salsa to tone it down a bit and give it a creamy texture. Corn chips are my favorite to dip in salsa but if you like other chips, have what you want! Use a pretty platter to put the chips and salsa on. This will make it convenient to pass around for seconds!
7. Turkey and Veggie Rolls
Here's a bit of a healthy take on little petite sandwiches: Turkey and veggie rolls! It's one of the best snacks for movie night with the girls since guys don't particularly care for dainty bite sized food items. Spread a few large flour tortillas with mayonnaise or the dressing of your choice. Choose fat free for a low cal snack! Then layer on lettuce, cheese and turkey. Next roll the tortilla up and cut it into bite size pieces. Now you have a platter of dainty, girly sandwich bites!
8. Fruit Punch
My absolute favorite punch of all times is super easy to make and tastes delicious. Mix a bottle of Hawaiian fruit punch, a liter of Sprite and as much ice cream as you would like in a bowl or pitcher. Then enjoy it! It's super easy and fast to make. My suggestion is wait to make it until time to serve it so that the ice cream doesn't melt too soon.
9. Trail Mix
You can make a delicious, healthy and fast trail mix cheaper than ones you buy from the store! It's one of the best snacks for girls movie night. Mix up peanuts, raisins, M&M's. carrots, and gummy bears in a big bowl. You can add or remove other things that appeal to you. Some people like Cheerios or Rice Chex in their trail mix as well. Eat whatever YOU like!
I don't know about you, but now I'm craving a movie night with all the girls, just so I can make some of these yummy snacks!
