The last time we made a batch was when we were hosting a flash-back movie night for the kids. Looking for a good after-school movie to show with this after-school snack idea? Here is our favorite movie suggestion to pair with this recipe:

MOVIE: Back to the Future (1985). The sci-fi cult classic follows the antics of a California teen, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), who travels back to the 1950s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (actor Christopher Lloyd) goes awry. Traveling through time in a DeLorean never looked more cool.

MOVIE TRIVIA: Did you know that Fox was not the first actor cast as Marty McFly? The role originally went to actor Eric Stoltz, who was a rising star at the time. But a few weeks into filming, director Robert Zemeckis and writer Bob Gale realized that Stoltz wasn’t bringing the quirky energy to the film that they wanted. The solution: replace Stoltz with Fox.
