Cozy up with your family in front of the fire for a special holiday movie and some Winter Wonderland Snack Mix! Whether you’re munching on this sweet-and-salty snack with the kids, serving it at a school class party, or packaging it up as gifts for friends, this seasonal treat will disappear fast!
Hi, friends! It’s definitely that time of year when the weather gets colder, the days get shorter, and we’re spending a lot more time indoors. I’ve told you about our Family Movie Night tradition before, and it’s still one of our favorite ways to wind down and spend time together at the end of the week. With three hungry boys (plus a husband) involved, you know that our movie nights always include some delicious food!
Since it’s the holiday season right now, my boys have been watching The Polar Express CONSTANTLY. There’s just something about boys and trains – they can’t get enough! On a recent evening, the kids spread their blankets on the floor (as they always do to catch their crumbs during movie night!), and popped in their favorite DVD. In about 5 minutes I stirred together this delicious snack mix, and my family was in HEAVEN!
Since “chocolate” and “pretzels” are two of my kids’ favorite food groups, they have always been huge fans of FLIPZ® Chocolate Covered Pretzels. After all, they’re the best of both worlds and they make movie nights even better! Salty, sweet, crunchy, creamy…they are amazingly good and our taste buds just never get bored. Warning – this mix is addicting and I bet you can’t eat just one handful!
For this wintery-themed mix, I used some white popcorn that’s as fluffy as snow (it is movie night and popcorn is bound to be included!), white chocolate chips, white chocolate peppermint candies, snowball-like marshmallows, and of course… FLIPZ® White Fudge Covered Pretzels!
The Limited Edition FLIPZ® Candy Cane Snowflakes or Milk Chocolate Snowflakes would also be perfect in this snack if you can find them!
After I watched my boys devour their bowls of mix before we even reached the “hot chocolate” scene in the movie, I realized that this would be the perfect treat to bring to a holiday class party as well…it’s just one of those treats that appeals to everyone!
