Mmm . . . Movie Night Bites!

Posted on: July 15, 2022

It’s a cozy Summer’s night in, where the family is excited to gather and watch the ultimate movie.  Is it a family-friendly animation, a warm-hearted drama or how about a heart-pumping thriller?  But wait—where are the snacks?  No matter the genre of the movie, a snacking essential is always needed!  Do not fret!  Here are two quick-and-easy movie night treats from Metro that will almost steal the show . . .


48 Ritz Original crackers
12 slices of Hardwood Smoked Pork Loin, Irresistibles Artisan, halved lengthwise
4 slices of Selection Swiss cheese, each cut into six even pieces
3 Selection baby dill pickles, thinly sliced
Selection honey mustard

Arrange 24 Ritz crackers on a large plate.
Fold a half slice of smoked pork loin and place over each cracker; top each with cheese, 2 slices of dill pickle and a dab of honey mustard.  Add remaining 24 crackers on top.
Heat sandwiches in the microwave for 45-60 seconds or until cheese is melted.
Serve immediately.


2 cups (500 mL) Christie Crispers, All Dressed Snacks
1 cup (250 mL) Christie, Original Snack Mix, Bits-Bites
2 cups (500 mL) Salted popcorn
½ cup (125 mL) Irresistibles amber Maple syrup
½ bar (50 g) Cadbury Dairy Milk, Milk Chocolate Bar, melted

Arrange Crispers, Bits and Bites and popcorn on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Heat maple syrup in a large skillet over high heat; boil for 2-3 minutes stirring frequently (syrup will be done when the colour is deeply caramelized and a small smear on a plate hardens quickly).
Remove from heat and drizzle hot maple over Crispers mix.
Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl for 30-45 seconds.  Drizzle over Crispers mix.
Chill uncovered for 15 minutes to set.
