Popcorn Movies Family Fun Night! We make a quick popcorn bar (both sweet and savory) which makes it a special night for everyone (and it’s also great for parties)!
A big thanks to JOLLY TIME Pop Corn for sponsoring this post and allowing me to bring you fun ideas like this Popcorn Movie Family Fun Night!
The girls and I have always loved our movie nights. Since they were just wee ones (they’re already 9 and 11; how did that happen??) I’ve been asking the question “So which movie do we want to watch?” and hearing their happy squeals since they know exactly what that means: Popcorn Movies Family Fun Night!
Popcorn has always been a part of these fun evenings. We even make a popcorn bar like the one in the photo above. Sometimes we’ll just pop some popcorn but the popcorn bar is a fun treat that makes it special, even when it’s just us hanging out watching a movie. But mixing extras into our popcorn is so much fun!! When it’s just the girls and me I’ll usually just do a sweet tray and skip the savory. But the savory is my favorite and I like to make one if there are any other adults around. This time my parents joined in the fun so I made them both!
For the sweet, I just put in whatever candies or treats we have lying around. A favorite for everyone is chocolate chips with crushed peppermint candies so that one is almost always included. The savory is just favorite spice mixes that we toss with a little butter before putting on the popcorn – SO good! My favorite is a mango and lime I picked up but just use your favorites and play around with how much butter/spice you like.
And, of course, we use JOLLY TIME Pop Corn! JOLLY TIME is a family-owned 101-year-old company and we just love them! Remember the post I did recently for Peanut Butter and Maple Gourmet Popcorn? That was JOLLY TIME, too…and it works so well for flavored popcorn. I’ll make that sometimes for our family fun nights, too. So many fun ways to do popcorn movies family fun night that we just do whatever we’re in the mood for :)
