9 Holiday Movie-Watching Snacks

December 21, 2012

One of the biggest luxuries that holiday time off affords us is the freedom to sit through a two-hour movie in the middle of the day -- perhaps alongside our family, after a lazy morning at home. But one can tire easily of movie theater popcorn and candy. If you're like us, you like to pack yourself treats and -- ahem -- smuggle them into the movie theater.

Whether you'll be singing along to Les Miz or cheering on Frodo and the dwarves, you'll want something to nibble on during those holiday blockbusters. From sweet to savory, we've collected 9 snack recipes perfect for mid-movie munching.
