Okay, so maybe they haven’t won any awards but if my taste buds are the judge, these snacks take first place in every category. Movies and food, need I say more? Personally, I cannot watch a movie unless I have a tasty treat on hand and with the Oscars right around the corner, it is the perfect time to try some bomb recipes.

College students are experts on snacks so I had no problem finding new ideas.  This is a roundup of snacks from Spoon University chapters across the nation. Most are perfect for cuddling up for a movie night, some can be stuffed into your bag at the theater and others are the perfect addition to your Oscar watch party.

    A match made in heaven. According to Penn State, it’s one of the easiest snacks for the dorms. And if you’re feeling real adventurous, you might even try making your own hummus.
