Movie Night & a Yummy Dessert

For Movie Night this week the kids picked Paul Blart: Mall Cop. They think this movie is so funny, so we brought out their pillows and blankets into the living room, got into our comfy pajamas, and watched the movie. It also made the dessert below. It is simple and ym children loved it. I actually prefer this with white chocolate, but I improvised, sicne I only had regular chocolate. Anyways the children loved it and I thought I would share it:

Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn

3/4 cups of un-popped pop corn. I put mine in my air popper. Once it was popped I drizzled melted butter over it and then sprinkled it with salt. In the mean time I had one bag of chocolate chips melting on the stove (a microwave would make this easier, but we don't have one). I also added a bit of milk to the chocolate to make the chocolate thinner and easier to work with. Once the chips were completely melted I used a spoon to drizzle it over the popcorn and sprinkled it with rainbow sprinkles. I let it sit for a few minutes, which allows for the chocolate to dry. We ate this while watching the movie. It was a simple and yummy dessert for little hands.


  1. Haha! We saw that movie in the theatre because Pavel wanted to see it (since he used to be a security guard.) It was cheesy (in a cute way.) I don't know why Kevin James reminds me of my Uncle it's not like he looks like him or anything :-P

    Oh, and yesterday P and I totally ate peanut butter with Ghiradeli semisweet chocolate chips :-P

  2. Actually, I was just thinking -- that kinda looks like the cereal/pretzel/popcorn/whatever concoctions we would make to munch on and watch movies under our makeshift blanket tents.

  3. We have 4 kids so we go yo the actual movies possibly once a year and its the 2,50 theatre. Csuse the snacks are still main theatre prices. So for our movie nights we do this......hubby makes stovetop popcorn and we have a variety of salts ect or every now n again add choc chips n mini marshmallows. Also bout 3 years ago i hit a projector for xmas do we go outside at dark and watch movies. Hubby n i even use it for our date nights. The kids friends kove our home movie theatre
