Popcorn snack mix

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Universal Pictures, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BoxtrollsFamilyNite http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

One of our family's favorite things to do during our long wet winter is to cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie together.  It's the only time the kids are able to eat in the living room and they take full advantage of it!
The Boxtrolls was just released so while I was out shopping at WalMart , I picked up the DVD {while supplies last!} and got some goodies to create the perfect family movie night.
There is nothing like eating popcorn during a movie, but we like to take it up a notch with our popcorn snack mix. It's super easy to make and I have yet to meet a person who doesn't love it!

Start by popping up a bag of Pop Secret Movie Theater Butter popcorn {I bought the 10 count}.  Remove any unpopped kernels. Pour your popped popcorn into a large bowl and mix in a 10 ounce bag of broken up Fritos {the kids love crunching them up in the unopened bag}, and about 8 ounces of stick pretzels {also broken up}. 

Melt 20 ounces of white almond bark in a microwave safe bowl.  I start with heating it for one minute and then stirring it every 30 seconds after that until it's smooth and melted.

Pour your white almond bark on top of your snack mix.

Stir until all of your mix is coated.

Once your mix is coated, pour it onto wax paper to harden.  This should only take about five minutes.
Once it's hard, you can break up the snack mix and it's ready to eat!

It's the perfect blend of sweet and salty.

When our kids were little, like clinging on my leg not letting me get anything done little, I kept wondering when they would be less needy. I have entered that phase {and it's awesome and sad and exciting all at the same time}.  With only a year and a half until my oldest son leaves the nest and heads to college, I cherish the time I get to spend with my kids at home.  I probably said that I cherished my time with the kids when they were little too, but this time I really mean it.  It's said in a different way. Like holy cow, the time really does fly by!

We love spending time with our kids and our kids really do like spending time with us.  It's fun when we have things that draw us together like a good movie and a yummy snack mix!

Trust me, The Boxtrolls made the perfect family movie night and the popcorn snack mix sweetened the deal!

How do you create the perfect family movie night?
