I absolutely love movie nights with Mini Me. In fact, with daddy away, these evenings mean that much more to us. We laugh, we cry, and we bond. We typically watch movies at home, just because its so much more comfortable. We can lounge around, have our choice of snacks and relax after a long week of school and work. Its even better in the winter when its too cold to go outside.
This past weekend, when the weather was on the chillier side, we chose to watch the new movie Goosebumps, with Jack Black. He is one of my favorite actors, always silly and fun, but in this role, he was even more outstanding. I was a fan of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps as a kid. He started writing them in 1992, when I was 9 years old. So I was super excited to get to watch this new movie, a culmination of so many of his stories into one fast paced, super fun, family movie. Mini Me loved the stories too, so it was a great way for us to bond over our two childhoods, and for her to make fun of how old I am. (Prehistoric, I might add)
The most important part of watching movies at our house, though, is the snacks. The luxury of watching movies at home is I can make fun snacks beyond the concession stand offerings. Themed snacks may very well end up on the lineup that evening. This evening was no exception with Monster Bark, perfect for all the movie’s monsters.
Of course every assistant has to test to make sure they are ok to serve. I think the smile says it all.
The recipe is so fast and easy, but super fun for a movie night. I like to layer my movie snacks flavors, so we also popped some Orville Redenbacher Movie Theatre Popcorn. Mini Me couldn’t help herself with the popcorn, even before the movie started. She just dug right in!
Don’t forget to grab a Coca-Cola to wash it all down! We prefer Coke Zero and Sprite.
