Midnight Movie Premiere Snacks
There’s nothing like going to see the midnight premiere of a movie. That’s where I’ll be tonight. Christopher Nolan’s new film Inception is being released tonight at 12:01 a.m. and I’m pumped. But instead of pigging out on buttery popcorn and extra large soft drink, I plan to pack some easier and much more healthy treats.
The best part of an opening night midnight movie showing are checking out the die-hard fans that are there. These people are the cream of the crop, and it’s nice to feel at home with strangers. You’re all there for the same reason and you’re excited! This isn’t my first midnight movie premiere, and I’m more than prepared!
Since I’ll probably eat dinner at around 7 p.m., I’ll want some snacks while waiting in line and while I’m on the way to the theater. I probably won’t be able to bring them into the theater, but because I’ll be with four other people, I plan to pack just enough for all of us to get a taste, and not too much more.
Popcorn is the perfect movie snack. It’s bite-size, salty and totally satisfying. But movie popcorn has way too much butter, and once you start munching on it, it’s hard to stop. I always prefer sweet popcorn, and this recipe looks great.
There are only four ingredients, so it’s not like I’ll have to run to the grocery store. I can pack up little bags for my fellow movie-goers and I know they’ll be thankful. After all, the anticipation while waiting in line at a midnight movie showing is great.
The other recipe that I want to make will satisfy my sweet tooth. It’s called Monkey Munch, Puppy Chow, Muddy Buddies, and a ton of other things, but it’s pretty much all the same. Using Chex cereal, and combining peanut butter, chocolate chips and other ingredients, and doused in powdered sugar, you get a sweet snack. I know it’s not healthy, and that’s why everyone is only getting a little bag of it!
I think these two should tie us over for the time that we will be waiting in line. This is my most anticipated movie of the summer, and these delicious recipes are the perfect complements.
