Snack on this Party Popcorn while enjoying your shows this weekend


1/3 cup popcorn kernels

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup toffee chips

In a heavy pot on high heat, add oil and 1 kernel of popcorn. Cover. When kernel pops, add the rest. Pop until you know longer hear the popping sounds. Remove from heat and spread on a baking sheet. In the same pot, melt butter over medium heat and add toffee and peanuts. Stir until toffee melts, adding more butter, if needed. Pour over popcorn. Melt chocolate in a small saucepan or in the microwave and drizzle over the top of the popcorn. Let sit for a few minutes then serve.

The weekend is upon us and we've got quite a lineup of entertainment all weekend long.

Tonight at 10 marks the return of Cinemax's original, action series Strike Back.  

A high-octane, globe-spanning thriller with storylines ripped from today's headlines, Strike Back, the network's first original primetime series in more than 15 years, focuses on two members of a top-secret intelligence agency known as Section 20: Michael Stonebridge, a British sergeant on the elite counter-terrorism team, and Damien Scott, a former U.S. Delta Force operative who was discharged on the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Stonebridge, Scott and the rest of Section 20 criss-cross the globe on the trail of a deadly international terrorist named Latif, who is planning a major attack involving a cache of WMD that could have global repercussions. -
