15 Movie Theater Copycat Recipes for Movie Night at Home
With the rise of streaming services, making your own movie night is easier than ever. Save yourself the Friday-night hassle (and the ever-rising cost) of the movie theater, and create a delicious, homemade treat for your family.
Snuggle in with your favorite snacks and make your big screen into a big night. The most popular choices throughout time have been popcorn, peanuts, and candy bars. We suggest a balance of sweet and savory options to create your own movie feast. As a “preview” to your movie night, have the family get together to put the finishing touches on the dishes.
Set up your living room like a movie theater by adding some touches of red cloth and dimmer lights. Serve your popcorn in paper boxes to really get the movie theater feel. (Or if you plan to make it a weekly event, these plastic popcorn tubs are adorable.)
Bake up one of our variations on a pretzel, or play up our deep dish pizza crust with your own fillings. And what kind of movie theater is complete without a hot dog heater? Bake up some homemade, gluten-free buns and top your dogs off with sweet pickle relish or bread and butter pickles you make yourself.
Movie night is the best night with a full snack bar by your side. Browse our selections for some classic movie treats or find some new favorites. Then it’s “Lights, Camera, Action,” in the kitchen to put this memorable evening together!
