It has been a busy week! I’ve been out of town, my husband has been working and my daughter has been having fun staying with her grandparents. It’s been a while since we’ve all sat down to enjoy Movie Night as a family.
And I couldn’t think of a better way to hang out as a family and enjoy a sweet and salty treat than having some Movie Theater Popcorn!
This popcorn is packed with pretzels, chocolate dipped licorice and tons of sprinkles. It’s a perfect combo for everyone in my family!
When we do movie night, it’s strictly family time. The computers get closed and the phones are put away. No distractions – no sneaking off. Just the three of us for a kid-friendly movie followed by something for adults. This week it was Rio 2 (yes, again) then on to Divergent.
Did you read the book Divergent? I did and I loved it. The movie follows the book pretty well, however it has been a while since I’ve read it so my memory may be a bit fuzzy on the details. I did not really enjoy book three of the series. Did you? It was not what I was expecting…
Anyway, I’m reading the Outlander series and LOVING it! I’m on book five, The Fiery Cross, and I’ve just started watching the series on Starz! Oh my, what a hunk Sam Heughan is! Yes, please!
So, what are you watching or reading these days? Anything good?
Movie Theater Popcorn

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Keywords: popcorn licorice pretzels
Melt a cup of chocolate chips and break the licorice into three pieces. Dip the licorice into the chocolate and lay on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Add sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet. I used about five pieces of licorice. Place the completed cookie tray into the fridge and pop your popcorn. I popped 3/4 cup kernels in my Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper. You may want two bags of microwave popcorn.
Turn the popcorn out on to a second lined cookie sheet and toss in a cup of broken pretzel pieces. Drizzle the remaining melted chocolate over the popcorn and pretzels and add sprinkles and some salt.
Toss in the chocolate licorice and serve it up. The chocolate on the popcorn won’t be hard, but I like it that way. It’s finger linking good!
