Movie Snacks

Fudgy Marshmallow Popcorn from Cookies and Cups

We know you’ll love the sweet, chocolatey taste of this fudgy marshmallow popcorn. Top this popcorn with evaporated milk, butter, granulated sugar, semi-sweet chocolate chips, Marshmallow Creme, vanilla, and mini marshmallows.

Caramel Apple Nachos from Mandy’s Recipe Box

Whip up a batch of these caramel apple nachos for your movie night. We recommend topping this dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, and a dash of cinnamon. We also recommend you heat up these nachos before you eat them.

Movie Recommendations

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964)

From Rogerebert.com: “Deneuve plays a young woman named Genevieve, who is head over heels in love with a local garage mechanic named Guy (Nino Castelnuovo). Her mother (Anne Vernon) runs a little local shop and is desperately in need of money to save her business. A rich man (Marc Michel) walks into the shop, falls in love with the daughter and begins a slow, indirect process that might lead to a proposal of marriage. Genevieve has eyes only for Guy, but he is drafted for two years by the army. And although they pledge to love each other forever, she receives only one letter from him in two months.”

Ironman (2008)

Go back to one of the first Avengers movies this summer.

From Rogerebert.com: “‘Iron Man’ doesn't seem to know how seriously most superhero movies take themselves. If there is wit in the dialog, the superhero is often supposed to be unaware of it. If there is broad humor, it usually belongs to the villain. What happens in ‘Iron Man,’ however, is that sometimes we wonder how seriously even Stark takes it. He’s flippant in the face of disaster, casual on the brink of ruin.”
