11 Delicious Movie Theater Snacks You Can Make At Home

Let's face it, going to the movies is not nearly as much fun as staying at home and watching a movie. There are no lines, no expensive sodas, nobody to tell me to put on real pants, nobody to talk during the best parts (with the exception of my very loud downstairs neighbors). Pretty much the only thing an at-home movie party is missing is the snacks. No matter how much popcorn I make in the microwave, it is nothing compared to that salty, buttery goodness over at the cinema.

So what do I do to satisfy my binge eating during my binge watching? Here are 11 movie theater treats to replicate at home, so it will almost feel like you're watching on the silver screen.
