Have you been looking for an excuse to spend some quality time with your grandkids? What better than an at-home movie night! Grab your pajamas, pop in a movie, make some of the unique snacks found below, and invite your grandkids over for a fun and meaningful night.
Movies and popcorn go hand in hand. For a fun twist on a classic favorite, try making churro popcorn! Although this takes longer than making a batch of regular popcorn, the excitement from your grandkids and the delicious taste will definitely be worth the extra time. You can find the step-by-step recipe here.
Frozen grapes are a delicious, healthy alternative to your classic, buttery movie snacks. They’re refreshing and incredibly easy to make! To prepare this snack, simply grab some grapes, put them in a freezer bag, and let them freeze overnight. If you want to add some extra sweetness, try coating the grapes in sugar before popping them in the freezer.
Apple Nachos with Peanut Butter and Chocolate
Don’t let the name fool you. These “nachos” don’t require any chips or cheese. Instead of tortilla chips, slice up some apples, and arrange them on a plate. Drizzle your apples with melted peanut butter and chocolate, and enjoy a new, creative dish!
S’mores Popcorn Mix
If you’re looking to enhance your popcorn but don’t have a lot of time, try making a s’mores popcorn mix! This sweet and salty combination should take less than 10 minutes to make. Simply pop some popcorn, and mix in mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. This snack is both easy and delicious!
Chocolate Filled Raspberries
Finally, if you have a sweet tooth but want a healthy alternative to candy, try making chocolate filled raspberries. This snack is incredibly simple to make. Grab some raspberries, and pop some chocolate chips inside the already formed cavity in the fruit. Try alternating between both milk and white chocolate chips for some variation!
No matter what you make, your grandkids will love spending some quality time with you and will remember those moments for the rest of their lives. If you end up trying any of these recipes, let us know! We’d love to hear your stories.
