Monster Munch Popcorn for Halloween Movie Night

by Jennifer Wieland
Monster Munch Popcorn the perfect snack for Halloween Movies with the kids.

It’s Friday night and on the weekends we like to do family movie nights like I am sure many of you do too. We curl up on the couches, pop in a family friendly movie and eat and snack the night away. With this being Halloween season right now we have a ton of scheduled movie nights filled with family friendly spooky themes. To complement our Halloween movie selections I decided to create Monster Munch popcorn as a silly, ghoulish treat.

Monster Munch popcorn takes just plain old butter popcorn and gives it an EWWW factor. The ghoulish slime on the popcorn is sweet, vibrant green colored white chocolate. The added gross factor of children worms and eyes are all completed with gummy candies. What makes this fun is that you can completely change this up to suit your family. You could stick with the green chocolate melts and use gummy witch fingers and pretzel cats. You could use red chocolate melts for a blood effect and some gummy fangs. Another option is to use black chocolate melts and add candy spiders and bugs. The possibilities go on and on and are only limited by your imagination.

I love pairing chocolate with popcorn. The salty, buttery popcorn and the sweet chocolate work so well together. The Wilton vibrant green melts give the perfect effect for slime.

Yum, yum, yum who doesn’t want to munch on some creepy eyeballs? I saw brains too when I was shopping that oozed “blood” I considered them but I thought they were a bit to much.
