I love family movie night. When we updated out media room we did so with family movie night in mind. My favorite thing to do is whip up one of my favorite Yummy Bar Recipes, like these Marshmallow Popcorn Bars & curl up on the chaise with the family all there with me & enjoy a good flick. I find that the more I spend time in the office, the more time I crave with the family – especially on the weekend. We try to cram so much into our days that it’s those times when we can really just enjoy each other’s company that I think we all cherish the most.
If you follow me on Instagram then you saw a while back I shared my most recent shopping pick for movie night- The Boxtrolls Movie DVD paired with the 10 count Pop Secret movie theater butter.
I love making some great popcorn mixes to enjoy during quality family time. This time I decided that I really wanted to do something a little different & make the popcorn into bars. I love marshmallow & popcorn together & so it seemed like a great idea to make it into a bar that we could all just grab one at a time – no bowl needed.
These were absolutely delish. I love the addition of trail mix – a little popcorn & nuts with some raisins & chocolate chips – you can’t beat that. I usually have plain popcorn for lunch everyday. It’s going to be really hard to not want to do this version instead.
My son was the first to dive in – look at all that gooey marshmallow!
We had a great time & enjoyed the movie. We are always looking for great ways to continue our conversations with our kids centering around making good choices no matter the circumstances. Boxtrolls was one of those movies that helped us do that & lead to some great family discussions.
I would love for you to pick up The Boxtrolls Movie DVD & some Pop Secret at Walmart & come on over & share your experience with me. (while supplies last)
