The last few weeks have been so busy with the beginning of the festive season, family in town, work and so many other things that we haven’t been able to spend any time together as a family.

Our menu was mostly finger foods and of course popcorn – I don’t think you could ever and I mean ever think of movies without popcorn! So, we had to make these ‘quick chocolate candy cane popcorn’ using Pop Secret popcorn which we bought from Walmart and they have a whole new 10+2 ct packaging.family-movie-night-popcornSince it’s a movie night popcorn, we choose the ‘Movie Theater Butter’ variety from the Pop Secret popcorn and they are ready in the microwave within 2 minutes. Seriously, a delicious treat cannot get easier than this – 2 minutes microwave popcorn + your favorite festive toppings = Win for All !homemade-popcorn-processOnce the popcorn was ready, we decided to top it with white chocolate, milk chocolate, candy cane bark, pecans, some crunchy or wafer filled chocolate bars (chopped) and tons of funfetti – by the time our first batch was ready, we already received requests for 2nd n 3rd round. They taste fabulous – imagine a buttery salty popcorn, mixed with sweet, crunchy bits. We actually made 6 bags of popcorn along with other savory finger food. festive-crunchy-munchy-popcorn-recipeThe best part was that the ‘Quick Chocolate Candy Cane Popcorn – Perfect Movie Night’ was not only a hit with us adults but they were a total Winner with the kids.

    Our kids LOVE popcorn! This looks like such a fun snack. Your pictures are beautiful, I love the presentation. I imagine the mint will be a great taste match with the salt & butter of the popcorn. I may have to have them try this this weekend. Thanks !
