8 Holiday Movie-Watching Snacks

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

Whether you'll be singing along to Les Mis or cheering on Frodo and the dwarves, you'll want something to nibble on during the holiday blockbusters. From sweet to savory, we've collected eight recipes that are perfect for mid-movie munching, brought to you by the spirited community of home cooks at FOOD52.
