It’s been snowy here in northeast PA and we’ve had several school cancellations. With so much free time on their hands, kids tend to get bored very quickly.
The help keep things fun, we decided to host a family movie night. Since The Boxtrolls was out on DVD, I thought that would be fun.
The movies is about a young orphan who is raised by underground trash collecting Boxtrolls and tries to save his friends from an evil exterminator. It’s a really cute movie.
And, nothing goes better with a good flick than some popcorn! In keeping with the them of the movie, I decided to make “trashy” Oreo Popcorn Balls. The crumbled cookies make the popcorn balls look like they came right of the trash.
My guy enjoyed them with root beer floats and his best friend!
Head to your local Walmart and pick up a copy of The Boxtrolls DVD and either Pop Secret 10ct Movie Theatre Butter Popcorn or Pop Secret 10ct Home-Style Popcorn (while supplies last) to hold you own family movie night!
