Entertainment // A super delicious peanut butter nutella popcorn recipe along with several movie ideas for your cozy low key Friday night (or any night for that matter). To the popcorn + movies below!
November kicked in (can you believe it, tho? and also are we gonna do these questions every time a season changes forever?) and so did cold fall weather (at least in my country). It’s super sunny and everything, but freaking freezing, especially in the evenings. And I’m already well in a place where going out late on weekends is no longer my favorite thing, which now that is starting to get freezing probably isn’t going to change that much. So, in case you’re too staying in this Friday night (or just about any other night), head on below to see how to make this peanut butter Nutella popcorn (which is super easy, and can almost instantly become a go-to movie snack recipe), with 3 movie titles for you to choose from. I’m hoping this will help you with your cozy, blanket-y evening plans!
Peanut Butter Nutella Popcorn Recipe.
– 1 Bag of Popcorn (100 gr.)
– 3/4 Cup to 1 Cup Peanut Butter
– 2-3 Tablespoons Nutella
1. Pop the popcorn in the microwave. Put a baking paper on a larger pan, and (once done) pour the popcorn on.
2. Melt the peanut butter in the microwave, for around 20-30 seconds (also, check it in between to make sure it’s all good). Once it’s done, pour it over the popcorn. You can mix the popcorn now, or you can wait for step 3, like I did, and mix everything at once. Honestly, even though I’m sure there is a difference, I don’t think that it’s that big of a deal. So..
Also, if you did try it both ways, do share your thoughts, I’m all ears, or eyes if you will.
3. Melt the nutella in the microwave (also check it in between, you don’t want it to burn or whatever). Once it’s nicely melted, pour it over the popcorn, mix and snack! Actually, no, don’t start snacking yet, below to the movies! I do hope you’ll find one you’ll love (or at least like), and then snack!
1. Wild Target. (2010)
Action, Comedy, Crime // 2 Hours 30 Minutes
Victor Maynard (portrayed by Bill Nighy, who was also minister Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter & the Deathly Hollows Part 1, Doctor Black in Doctor Who’s Vincent and the Doctor, and Davy Jones in Pirates of the Caribbean, among other roles) is a an impeccable hitman who’s about to get retired, but gets “interrupted” by this hot-ass thief Rose (Emily Blunt, the Jane Austin Book Club, the Young Victoria, Sicario, the Girl on the Train, etc). She’s running away from these mob dudes, our guy Victor meets her & gets involved, it’s action, it’s funny. Also, Rupert Grint, or Ron from Harry Potter, plays Tony, a guy who’s pretty much a British ginger pot-head, and he joins their “team” and the run.
I caught it once on TV, I wanted something that will “help” me fall asleep sooner, so I started watching it. But it almost instantly got me interested, laughing, and, well, wide awake. Worth it tho.
2. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. (2008)
Drama, War // 1 Hour 30 Minutes
This is definitely not your happy movie, I have to warn you, but it is a great war story, definitely worth seeing. The scene is World War II, and the plot’s focused on 8 year old Bruno – son of a Concentration Camp Commandant (played by David Thewlis, who we know as Remus Lupin in Harry Potter, Sir Patrick in Wonder Woman, etc.). Bruno’s spending his childish days naively playing around his home (located near the concentration camp), exploring the nature around. Curious about that massive grey building across the forest, he goes on to discover what that is. There, on the other side of the fence, he meets an 8 year old Jewish boy, the two start talking and soon become friends. Needless to say, their friendship is forbidden, and while it grows, it leads to discovering new, and not at all pleasant truths, so that it finally unravels in a complete turn of events.
You’ll cry, fo’ sho, so if you’re looking for something to cheer you up, this title is not for you. Try 1, or 3, tho. 🙂
3. Becoming Warren Buffet. (2017)
Documentary // 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Warren Buffet today is one of the richest men in the whole world. His holding Berkshire Hathaway owns dozens of companies, in wholeness, and has invested in dozens of others, skyrocketing both the company, and his net worth. But who was Warren Buffet when he started? How did he become what he is today – an outstanding example of a business man? All of that, combined with some stories of his personal life, is put together in this inspiring documentary. This would make for a perfect low key Friday packed with snack and motivating business lessons for the entrepreneurial, driven folks.
Tell me, anything from these here that will please your taste? If you’ve already seen these titles (or you simply don’t care to), you can jump here, here & here for some of my previous movies + snack ideas (in case you’re also looking for something different than peanut butter nutella popcorn). Also, feel free to share your go-to movie in comments, I’d love to learn what it is you love in a movie!
