Nate and I can only get out to the movies once every couple of months, but luckily we have a nice home theater so we can watch lots of movies at home after the baby goes to sleep. The next best part about actually watching a movie, is enjoying some yummy snack or treat while watching, and this movie theater popcorn mix is the perfect treat!
This movie theater popcorn mix is the perfect popcorn treat at home, because you can get all the same great tastes of movie theater popcorn and the best movie theater candy treats in one simple to make popcorn mix! Especially thanks to the help of Pop Secret Popcorn. With Pop Secret’s Movie Theater Butter Popcorn, this popcorn mix is ready in just about 3 minutes tops!
I grabbed my Pop Secret Movie Theater Butter Popcorn and a few packages of my favorite movie theater candy at Walmart to throw together in my mix for us to enjoy a fun movie night at home!
For my candy choices, I grabbed regular M&Ms, Reeses Pieces, Mike and Ikes, Milk Duds, and Swedish Fish!
I used about half of the movie theater boxed size of each candies (About 1/4 cup each) and one package of popcorn, but you could do two packages of popcorn with the full box of each candy too.
Movie Theater Popcorn Mix
- 1 bag Pop Secret Movie Theater Butter Popcorn
- 1/4 cup Milk Duds
- 1/4 cup Reese's Pieces
- 1/4 cup Mike and Ikes
- 1/4 cup M & Ms
- 1/4 cup Swedish Fish
- Pop your package of popcorn in the microwave according to package directions (Mine took 2 minutes to be done).
- Carefully mix together your popcorn and candy. Sprinkle your popcorn in a large bowl and then sprinkle your candy on top (because most of the candy starts to sink to the bottom)
I’m hoping Nate and I can get out to see a movie in theaters soon, and thanks to Pop Secret we can get a free ticket to see the new Fantastic Four movie. You can buy any 3 Pop-Secret items between 7/31 – 8/31 at Walmart and get a Free ticket to the Fantastic Four movie (up to $5) while supplies last.
This recipe is an atrocity. Unfortunately it appeared at the top of Google search.
I’m sorry, I tried to specific that it’s a snack mix, not a mix to make movie theater popcorn :/

Wait, you’re secret “movie theatre popcorn” you thought to blog the recipe for is literally Pop Secret microwave popcorn? Sorry but that’s sort of lame… if you want REAL movie theatre style popcorn, you need 1) Unpopped Kernels, 2) Virgin Coconut Oil, 3) Flavacol brand powdered salt (the yellow stuff all over theatre popcorn). Put enough oil to just cover the bottom of a pot (with lid) on stovetop. Let oil get HOT. Add Flavacol salt (as little or as much as you want really) and popcorn kernels to the oil at the same time, and cover with lid. Shake gently every 5-10 seconds until popping slows significantly. Remove from heat. Now THAT is movie theatre popcorn.
(PS. I would never recommend microwave popcorn to anyone in any form of media outlet, as microwave popcorn is cancer-causing crap just waiting to melt your insides, and internet media outlets, aka blogs, reach waaay more people than you might think. Keep it safe, cook it right. It still takes 5 minutes max anyway and the kernels are way cheaper.)
I’m not sure if you even read the post but the recipe is for a popcorn snack mix. Not for movie theater popcorn. I love making homemade popcorn as well, but when you want it a bit quicker microwave popcorn works great, and this SNACK MIX is good with either.
Movie Theater Popcorn Mix It doesn’t say anything about snack. It should have read Movie Theater Popcorn Candy Mix. Where is the Movie Theater Popcorn?
Sorry, the description at the top says it’s candy mixed with popcorn, sorry that’s not what you were looking for. The only way I’ve actually gotten the flavor of movie theater popcorn at home is with a big popcorn machine. We have one from Great Northern
