1. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

This timeless classic movie was made in 1971 and starring Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson, and Peter Ostrum. While this film was made for children, it warms the hearts of adults as well.

The story is about a young boy named Charlie that wins the golden ticket to tour one of the most famous chocolate factories in the world. He takes the tour with four other children from around the world, and a colorful candy maker leads them through a magical adventure complete with Oompa Loompas.

The chocolate factory tour includes visiting the Chocolate Room that consists of a chocolate waterfall and even a chocolate river.

2. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This movie is the remake of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. It stars Johnny Depp as the eccentric owner of the chocolate factory.

3. Le Chocolat

This sweet movie features a single mother (played by Juliette Binoche) with a young daughter opened up a new chocolate shop in a small French village set in 1959. Her chocolates transform their lives and renew their passion for life and love.

4. Like Water for Chocolate

In 1992, Like Water for Chocolate became the highest-grossing foreign-language film until that year released in the United States. This movie is set in the early 1900s.

It is a tradition in families that the youngest daughter cannot marry because they must take care of their mother until her death. The story’s heroine, Tita is the youngest daughter that finds true love with Pedro.

They cannot marry, and Pedro marries Tita’s sister Rosaura instead to be close to her.

Tita is the family’s head cook, and all of her emotions go into every dish she makes. Whoever eats her food can feel all those emotions in every bite.

Throughout the years, the love between Tita and Pedro causes tension in the family. The story of the food they eat is weaved throughout the movie.

5. Murder, She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery

If you haven’t heard of the Hallmark series Murder, She Baked, you’re in for a real treat. The series stars Alison Sweeney and Cameron Mathison.

This movie is about a baker (Alison Sweeney) who turns into an amateur sleuth. She happens to stumble into numerous mysteries involving dead bodies in her small town in Minnesota. The local detective (Cameron Mathison) wants to solve each case alone, but Hannah Swensen ends up finding lots of clues on her own.

The Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery is just one in the series that features baked goods. They are some of my favorite cozy mysteries with fun plots and good acting. You’ll want to watch them all. Whip up some homemade chocolate chip cookies to enjoy this fun movie.
