Movie nights are definitely one of the most enjoyed hobbies among people nowadays. Thanks to the affordable TVs in the Philippines, movie nights are possible. You can do it alone or with your family or closest friends. Home movie experiences may not be the same as the one in the theaters but it does have a big advantage: food. However, if you want to try something other than the conventional popcorn, hotdog-in-a-bun, and candy, then this list is perfect for you! Check out the following foods and try to make them for your next movie marathon!
- Glazed Bacon Rollups
Who doesn’t love bacon? This salty treat goes very well with sweet flavors, making it an ultimate snack. Grab some white bread then roll up the bacon in it before baking. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup or put some in a bowl to serve as your dip. Take a bite and experience heaven in the form of salty, sweet goodness.
- Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pancakes
Delight yourself—and your friends!—with this decadent snack. Pancakes are not just for breakfast, they’re good as snacks too! This is also perfect if you are watching romance movies especially when the protagonist is wallowing in sadness after a breakup. All you need to do is grab a box of pancake mix then follow the instructions in the box on how to cook pancakes. You can do it from scratch if you prefer. Combine chocolate frosting and peanut butter in a bowl then mix until everything is well incorporated. When the pancakes are cooked, spread two tablespoons of frosting on each cake then layer them until you reach the final layer. Put the pancake tower in the refrigerator for an hour to let the frosting set. After an hour, take the cake out and enjoy! You can also add banana slices or chocolate syrup if you want.
- Fruit Pizza
Want to deviate from the traditional savory pizza? Try making a fruit pizza! It’s easy, healthy, and customizable, too. Put some oats in the blender or food processor then grind until it reaches a fine, almost flour-like consistency. Add some flour, sugar, cinnamon powder, and milk. Mix until everything is sticky then pat the “pizza dough” down on a greased baking tray. Spread it out then bake in a 350°F oven for 12-15 minutes. While the crust is baking, combine plain yogurt, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a bowl then mix well. This will serve as your frosting. Once the pizza crust is done baking, spread the yogurt frosting evenly before decorating your pizza with whatever fruit you like. You can use strawberries, bananas, peaches, apples, kiwi, or blueberries, depending on your taste.
- Non-alcoholic Fruit Punch
Cap things up with a refreshing fruit drink! Pour one liter of fresh orange juice (or strawberry or grapefruit) in a large punch bowl. Add two liters of lemon or lime soda then mix. Finally, take some of you favorite fruit sorbet, scoop in individual glasses, and then serve. You got yourself a delicious drink that was easy and did not need alcohol to make!
