Movie mix

We love to have a movie night, usually on Saturday nights, where we sit down as a family and enjoy a nice film together. Recently I’ve started to make a movie mix, a selection of yummy sweet treats, that we can all enjoy together.

Sometimes we’ll serve everything in one big bowl, and all enjoy together, and other times I’ll use these cute little *popcorn pots I bought from Amazon.

For us sitting around as a family on the weekends is a nice way to break up the day. We’ll often take the dog for a walk, visit the park and then we’ll come up to cuddle up on the sofa together and enjoy a movie.

This is a great fun family activity and a pretty frugal weekend activity too.

Movie mix - pretzels, magic stars, Maltesers and toffee popcorn

Ingredients for movie mix:

1 bag of Magic stars

1 bag of Maltesers

120g toffee popcorn

150g Sourdough salted pretzels – I use *San Francisco ones

Method for movie mix:

Break the pretzels into small pieces and place in a large bowl.

Add the magic stars, Maltesers and toffee popcorn into a bowl.

Mix very well.

Serve and enjoy!

Looking for some other ideas for movie night?

I love to serve a picky tea, and sometimes I’ll even make this breakfast grazing platter. Having lots of picky bits makes it really easy for everyone to enjoy the movie, without being distracted, and it’s a great way to have a fun family dinner without breakfast the bank.

Some nights I’ll make my own pizza dough in the breadmaker and use my homemade roasted tomato pizza sauce to dress it. This is another fun family activity that we can do together before we settle down for our film night.

Tips for making movie mix:

  • Have a combination of sweet and salty foods.
  • Sweet and salty popcorn works well.
  • Have a selection of different shape and texture chocolates. This will add some nice variety.
  • Don’t use bold or spicy flavoured pretzels if you’re sharing with children.

Want to serve some sweets with your movie mix?

Pick and mix works great here, but avoid anything that is coated in sugar, as this will not work so well with the salty pretzels or toffee popcorn. Gummy sweets are always fun and popular with children.

Personally we love Haribo fangtastics served on the side in their own bowl. We’ll sometimes have crisps alongside this too, usually a tube of Pringles or something simple.

Want to make this dairy free?

ALL of the ingredients in this movie mix contain dairy. If you’re looking to make a dairy free version I’d recommend free from chocolate buttons, Penn State salted pretzels, Doisy & Dam ballers and Joe & Seph’s toffee apple & cinnamon popcorn.

Other ideas for chocolates to enjoy on movie night:

  • M&M Peanuts
  • M&M Chocolate
  • Revels
  • Minstrels
  • Kit Kat Bites
  • Smarties
  • Dairy milk giant buttons
  • Matchmakers
  • Milk chocolate peanuts
  • Flipz milk chocolate
