One of our favorite family night activities during the winter is Movie Night! We love dimming the lights, putting on a great movie and snuggling up together under all our blankets with a yummy snack.
What’s a better movie night snack than popcorn?
I’ve got a great secret shortcut to share for putting together the best sweet and savory Movie Night Popcorn Snack Mixes!
We’ve had a busy couple of weeks- hubby had to squeeze in 60 hours of additional classroom time, so the kids pretty much did not see their Dad for 7 days straight. (They leave before he wakes up and he wasn’t getting home til 10pm.) His last night of class was last Thursday and I knew he just wanted to come home and relax. I thought a movie night would be the perfect way to have family time and still let Dad “unwind.” Family time is so important at this age- even if it is something as simple as family movie night.
I hit up Walmart to grab the new The Boxtrolls DVD/Blu-ray Combo pack, a 10-pack of Pop Secret Home-Style Popcorn and the ingredients for the Snack Mix. (Such a cute movie- The Boxtrolls just released to DVD on Jan. 20th, and I’m so happy to have another great family movie that the kids can watch anytime.)
My short cut secret is popping up a bag of Pop Secret Popcorn and then mixing in a bag of your favorite pre-made snack mix.
Add the sweet snack mix to the popcorn:
Mix it all together:
We all loved The Boxtrolls! You can get the DVD and Pop-Secret Movie Theater Butter or Homestyle 10 Count Box in one trip to your local Wal-Mart, while supplies last!
