Movie Night Munchies for Your Oscar Party!

Movie Night Munchies for Your Oscar Party!

If you’re having an Oscar watch party this weekend — or just planning to catch up on a few Oscar nominated flicks — our friends at Foodstirs have got some healthy treats that will make great additions to any movie. These recipes are kid-approved and simple enough to put together in under 30 minutes with their help, so let the show begin!

Popcorn Bar

Get your party poppin’ with an all-natural popcorn bar (Note: we aren’t talking about regular microwave popcorn here). Use air popped popcorn to take advantage of popcorn’s natural health benefits including healthy oils, vitamin E, protein, B vitamins, and minerals. In some studies, popcorn has even been shown to have a higher concentration of cancer preventing micronutrients than many fruits.

Cinnamon Star Crisps

Star crisps are a sweet movie-munching snack and much healthier for you than that bag of chips in the pantry. Our favorite part of this recipe is the cinnamon: it adds great flavor, but also has certain health benefits, including inflammation reduction and antioxidant effects.

  • Mix the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Cut shapes out of the tortillas.
  • Brush butter onto cut outs.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 6-8 tortillas, cut into shapes


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheets with aluminum foil (optional).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together 1 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. Using a cookie cutter, cut stars out of the flour tortillas.
  4. Place stars onto the baking sheets. Using a pastry brush, brush melted butter on both sides of the stars. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  5. Bake in the oven until sugar melts and tortillas become crisp, about 10 minutes. Baking time will vary depending on size of stars. Store in an airtight container.
