Everyone loves to snack on something while watching a movie. At the cinema, we are always presented with hundreds of options. From savoury nachos to sweet crepes, spicy fried delicacies to healthy juices, they have it all.

But what about those movie nights at home? Microwave popcorn is one option but if you like sweet popcorn more, skip the caramel ones and try these white chocolate pumpkin pie spiced bites instead.

This recipe combines popcorn, white chocolate and pumpkin pie spice for a decadent and delicious treat.
