Backyard Movie Night Food Ideas

Backyard Movie Night Food IdeasLet’s get this party going…..but wait, first we need some Backyard Movie Night Food Ideas.  You absolutely can’t go to the movies without having popcorn, snacks and candy!

At least, I can’t.

What is your favorite movie night snack food?

Mine is popcorn with Milk Duds mixed into the popcorn.

The Milk Duds melt in the warm popcorn and since it’s dark while watching a movie, you never know when you will get a surprise burst of gooey chocolate and caramel. Yummy!!!

But truthfully, I love popcorn of any kind. So I added several recipes and ideas for easy movie night snacks.

Backyard Movie Night Party Ideas…

Start with Popcorn

Popcorn is a MUST HAVE for me, whether it is at the theater or just in my living room.

How fun this popcorn machine would be, especially since it sits on a cart that can be moved closer to the movie.

You can buy it with or without the cart, which is nice as well. The cart gives you a great way to move it around and you can store the paper bags for the popcorn and the scoop and everything you need to make more popcorn.

Hold the butter for me, but extra salt! Here are a few more items you may need for your popcorn machine.

What is a movie without candy and popcorn.

I said it before and I will say it again…. Milk Duds are for me. I like to put them on my popcorn.

But I have other favorites too. Good and Plenty is a favorite of mine. I love black licorice.

Everyone has their favorite movie candy, buy candy in an assorted bulk package so everyone has a choice.
