The Ultimate Movie Night Snack Platter

Movie_Night_Snack_Platter_1

Let me guess. You are trying to eat a little healthier after
all that sweet December craziness and perhaps put chips and
candy on hold for a while, but you still want something good to
snack on in front of a movie this weekend? Well, we’ve got you
covered. We have created a snack platter that leaves nothing
behind and that you can toss together in 15 minutes. Fresh fruit,
nuts, carrot sticks, dark chocolate, nut butter truffles and a
little peanut butter cinnamon dip. Sounds good? It is! And here
below is a little video where we show how to make it.

We actually recorded this last year but forgot to share. Our
little assistant Noah looks so tiny and sooo cute. Now that
we’ve showed you how to make it, go create that snack platter
and crash in the couch with your family, friends or pets. And if
you have any movie recommendations, please share!

A Healthy Movie Night Snack Platter

All the fruit on the platter are just suggestions, you can of
course add anything you wish. We do like the mix of truffles,
crunchy carrots, crispy apple, nuts, dark chocolate (super
delicious to dip in the nut butter) and a citrus fruit.

Nut Butter Balls
15 soft dates, pitted
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp peanut butter
50 g / 1/2 cup rolled oats
3 tbsp desiccated coconut
3 tbsp cacao powder
1 pinch sea salt

For rolling
4 tbsp finely chopped hazelnuts or desiccated coconut

Add the ingredients to a food processor and mix until everything
comes together into a sticky dough. Roll 20-25 small balls between
the palms of your hand. Cover them in chopped hazelnuts or
coconut. If it doesn’t stick, you can dip each ball in cold water
before covering them with the nuts. Store in the fridge
while preparing the other snack platter ingredients.

Snack Platter Elements
3 carrots, peeled and cut into sticks
2 apples, sliced
2 kiwi fruits, halved
a handful nuts and raisins of choice
a handful physalis/inca berries
80 g / 3 oz dark chocolate, broken into large bits
Nut butter balls (see recipe above)

Peanut Butter Dip
100 ml / 1/2 cup peanut butter
2-4 tbsp water
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp maple syrup (optional)

Make the peanut butter dip by stirring together peanut butter, a
splash of water and cinnamon. You can add a little maple syrup if
you like it sweeter. Place it in the middle of the platter.
Place all other elements around the dip and fill up until the
platter is full. Enjoy!
