Movie night with the kids is definitely one of my favorite nights. It happens often around my home, especially on nights when dad has to work late. All we need is a pay per view movie, some warm blankets and delicious snacks. My signature movie night menu is homemade soft pretzels, freshly popped popcorn and a unique snack mix.

With Christmas seriously just around the corner (say, what?!) I decided to make a special holiday snack mix featuring FLIPZ® chocolate covered pretzels, frosted Os, peanuts, red and green candies and dried cherries. You could certainly use dried cranberries if you want instead of cherries. This festive mix is sweet and salty, the perfect duo for any movie night snacking.

FLIPZ® Christmas Snack Mix

[yumprint-recipe id=’16’]I am a creature who loves comfort at home, so I have a ridiculous amount of warm blankets and fuzzy pillows. With the weather so cold here in the desert at night, movie night means – all of the bedding. Savannah and I pulled out all of our favorite faux fur items and nuzzled in for the evening. This is a “tween” movie fort she says.

I love creating snack mixes because you already have these ingredients in your pantry – cereals, nuts, candy… simple ingredients for an easy treat. The star of this mix is one of my favorite movie night snacks – FLIPZ®. These chocolate covered pretzels (I used white fudge) are ridiculously good and already have that sweet n salty taste on their own. A bag of FLIPZ® never lasts long in my house; that’s for sure. Special for the season, find FLIPZ® limited edition snowflake pretzels, which would make this mix even more festive!
