Mary’s Tavern Recipes ~ Rocky Road Popcorn Bars

Summertime Movies2!

Welcome to my Tavern! Since it’s the month of May, my first thought was the start of all the summer movies. Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War kicks off the summer movie season today.

Now when I go to the movies, I have to bring snacks and water. Yes, I know the theaters frown on you bringing in your own food and drink, but it’s bloody expensive! Although, I must confess to a weakness for buttered popcorn. Absolutely delicious! And on occasion, I will purchase the decadent snack.

However, this oldie, but goody treat I found in my old recipe box from decades ago, is one that I’ll be making in batches and freezing until my next trip to the movies. Wait! Who am I kidding? Freezing sounds like a great option, but there won’t be much to stash away after my husband spies these.

Do have any snacks you take into the theaters? Do share and know your secret is safe within Mary’s Tavern.

  1. This sounds good. I am going to have to make it. I love nuts in everything! Thanks for sharing, Mary.

  2. Erin

    Sounds yummy! (Even if it does have chocolate…LOL)
    I wonder how caramel/butterscotch chips would taste in place of the chocolate?

    • Oooo…I like the sound of caramel/butterscotch chips, Erin. I’ll have to try this combination. Love creating something new with a recipe. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚
