My kids love to snuggle up with cozy blankets in our family room watching Christmas movies on cool winter evenings. I’ve always loved doing holiday themed family movie nights with special snacks to go with the theme. Tonight I’m sharing a yummy Christmas popcorn mix that is sure to add excitement to an already fun family evening. So get your cozy blankets and favorite holiday movie ready, and head into the kitchen to make this simple Christmas popcorn snack. Be sure to keep reading after the recipe because I’m also sharing some of my favorite family movie picks for the holidays!
- 1 bag popcorn, popped (be sure to remove all of the kernels!)
- 3 tbsp butter
- 3 cups mini marshmallows
- 1/2 cup red & green M&Ms
- 1/4 cup holiday sprinkles
In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat.
Add in marshmallows and stir frequently, until melted.
Cover a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment or wax paper. Layer popcorn onto pan in a single later. Pour melted marshmallow mixture over popcorn.
Quickly add M&Ms and sprinkles. Serve immediately.
This holiday treat can be added to small plastic bags to give as a treat or served in a bowl at your next family holiday gathering.
Holiday Movie Picks
I love quiet winter nights spend cuddled with my family watching Christmas movies. As promised I’m sharing a few of my favorite movie picks for your next family movie night!
This Christmas classic might not make a lot of sense to kids these days but it has my husband and me laughing every year.
This is a good movie to teach about giving during the holidays. Kids also love seeing their favorite Disney characters in a classic tale.
My kids love all the buddy movies and this one is on often at our house during the holiday season. It’s a cute story about a group of puppies that help Santa.
This modern take on the story by Dr. Suess might be better than the original cartoon. We love to watch both as Christmas is getting close.
