Top Homemade Snacks to Binge Watch Netflix With

Make your next Netflix marathon even more fun with these tasty, homemade snacks. They’re all quick and easy to make, perfect for throwing together at the last minute. They’re also great for sharing, so you won’t have to worry about your friends going hungry. Give these homemade treats a go -you’ll never want a bag of Doritos or microwave popcorn again!

Toffee Popcorn

This sweet snack is surprisingly easy to make at home and works out a lot cheaper than the kind you can buy. Pop as much com as you like in a pan with a little oil, then set

aside. Be sure to pick a large enough pan to prevent overflowing. Next, melt butter and sugar in a pan until completely smooth. Use brown sugar for the best taste, but any kind will work.

Stir your melted toffee mixture into the popcorn until completely coated, and spread out in one layer on a lined baking tray. Bake at a medium heat for 10-15 minutes, until nice and crunchy. Tip into a large bowl and enjoy!


This is a fun snack that you can mix and match to your tastes. Start by putting a layer of nacho chips in a heat proof dish. For a simple snack top with tomato salsa
and grated cheese, then pop under the grill until melted. This is quick, easy and delicious

If you fancy something a bit more exciting, then there are plenty of other toppings you could add. Cook black beans and vegetables with Mexican spices for a filling option that could double as a meal. For a healthy choice, make your own guacamole by mashing avocado together with lime, chilli, coriander, tomato, salt and pepper, and use as a tasty dip.

Roasted Chickpeas

This might not be the first food that comes to mind when you think of TV-watching snacks, but it’s surprisingly delicious, healthy, and low fat. This one couldn’t be much easier to make – simply drain a can of chickpeas, pat dry, toss with olive oil and spices, then roast for around 30 minutes.

For a simple flavour, stick with salt and pepper. If you’d like something with more ofa kick, try paprika, cumin, or curry powder. Part of the fun of this recipe is
experimenting with different spice combinations – you could even make a few batches, each with a different flavour.

Pizza Rolls

All the fun of pizza, but in a convenient, bite-sized roll. These are great for kids and adults, and easy to make and customize. To make this snack you’ll need homemade or store bought pizza dough. Roll this out, then spread with tomato sauce (again, this can be store bought or homemade). Top with grated cheese, and all your favourite pizza toppings. You could try mushrooms, pepper, sweetcorn, fresh tomato or pineapple. Roll the dough up carefully, and then slice into
rolls and bake in the oven for about half an hour. You could serve these along with a bowl of curly fries, and plenty of ketchup.

Snacks are essential for long Netflix watching sessions. These ideas are quick, easy and delicious. Be careful, though, you might never want to watch TV without them again!
