One of my favorite family traditions has always been Family Movie Night! I love how convenient & fun it is to enjoy a movie together in our living room! We can pick any movie we want, start it whenever we’re ready, and enjoy it from the comfort of our sofa at home. When it comes to epic Family Movie Nights, great snacks are a must! So today, I’m sharing some of my favorite snack ideas for an indoor movie night at home. Whether you like savory or sweet, I have some snack options that are sure to satisfy everyone. Oh, and the best part of our Family Movie Night? We got to watch the movie for free! Yes, we get a free new release movie on VUDU ($7 value) just for subscribing to the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan. It’s a fabulous perk for a plan that already offers an incredible amount of data at an amazing value. Keep reading for all the details!
Popcorn Bar, S’mores Dip and the Best Movie Night Ever
With the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan, I get Unlimited Talk, Text & Data, which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE data. Plus, I get a free movie on VUDU ($7 value) every month per line for $49.88! Isn’t that an amazing deal? I’ve been with another cellular carrier in the past, and I paid much more per month for a lot less data. And of course, I never got a free movie every month! This free movie is perfect for our family, since we all enjoy Family Movie Night so much. Our family really loves Frozen so we recently streamed the movie on VUDU for free! Streaming movies on demand is so convenient! While my husband set up the movie, my daughters and I got comfortable on the couch.
The first snack I’m excited to share with you all is my S’mores Dip. This dip features all the lovely flavors of traditional s’mores made outdoors over a fire: roasted marshmallows, melted chocolate and Nabisco graham crackers. Here’s the simple version on how to make a delicious S’mores dip that the whole family will love!
Simply start by gathering the ingredients you’ll need: chocolate chips, marshmallows, milk and Nabisco graham crackers.
After you melt the chocolate in the microwave, pour it into a baking dish. Let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to firm up a bit. Then sprinkle the marshmallows on top.
Place this baking dish under the broiler for about 5 minutes to melt the marshmallows.
Paired with the Nabisco graham crackers, this S’mores Dip is delicious! Everyone loves this sweet snack!
The combination of crunchy graham cracker, roasted marshmallows and melted chocolate is lovely.
If you’d like to try the S’mores Dip for yourself, here’s a printable version of the recipe!
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 5-7 Nabisco graham crackers
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1. Add the chocolate chips and milk to a microwaveable cup. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Stir to melt the chocolate.
- 2. Add the melted chocolate to the bottom of a small baking pan.
- 3. Top with the mini marshmallows.
- 4. Place under the broiler for about 4-5 minutes until the marshmallows start to brown.
- 5. Use the graham crackers to pick up the dip! Enjoy!
Another snack that everyone in our house always loves is Swedish Fish. Did you know that the 1.9lb bag of Swedish Fish is on Rollback at Walmart for only $4.48? I love a good deal! Plus, it features fun, new packaging: “New Look! Same Fish!” I set some out in a small bowl!
To make our movie night a bit more special, I decided to do something fun with the Swedish Fish! I simply printed out a silhouette a basic fish.
I cut it out and used it as a template on my serving dish. Then, I placed the Swedish Fish inside the fish template. It makes for a cool display: a school of fish in the shape of a fish! The whole family got a kick out of it!
Another snack that’s a staple of every movie night is popcorn, of course! But any ol’ popcorn just wouldn’t work! I wanted to make a fun Popcorn Bar. And it was so easy! All I did was set out bowls of various flavors of popcorn: white cheddar popcorn, butter popcorn, caramel popcorn and chocolate popcorn.
Next, I set out small cups with various toppings and mix-ins! I separated them into two groups: the savory toppings included parmesan cheese and hot sauce. The sweet toppings included Swedish Fish, Sour Patch Kids, chocolate chips, marshmallows and chocolate syrup.
Check out this fun personalized bowl I made using a few different varieties of popcorn, along with my favorite toppings!
Our Family Movie Night was a blast thanks to the wide variety of fun snacks I set out on the table. Everyone in the family loves being able to customize their snacks and so the Popcorn Bar was a lot of fun for everyone. And the S’mores Dip was a great way to bring an outdoors treat inside. Of course, the Swedish Fish display was also a really unique presentation that the whole family really loved!
Our movie night was made extra special since we didn’t have to pay for the movie! Hooray! We got a free movie on VUDU thanks to subscribing to the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan. On top of offering Unlimited Talk, Text & Data (10GB of 4G LTE), the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan also offers a free movie on VUDU every month, per line for only $49.88. By the way, this movie can even be a new release! Having 10GB of data available to me is so convenient! As a busy mom of two, I’m always running around taking care of errands during the day. With this plan, I can stay connected to the people I love throughout the day. I can respond to emails, make phone calls, text my loved ones and not worry about exceeding my limits.
Keep in mind that if you are not already using Walmart Family Mobile as your service provider, you will need to purchase the Starter Kit. But I have great news! The starter kit will be on Rollback (for the first time ever!) for only $19.88 (from $25). The offer lasts until July 7th, so hurry and take advantage of this great deal before it’s gone. Walmart Family Mobile is helping you save even more money when it comes to setting up your service.
I recently upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime smartphone. It is currently on Rollback at Walmart for only $129 (from $149). It has a 8MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP forward-facing camera! Plus, it has other great features too, such as Bluetooth connectivity,
Voice commands and Text-to-speech! Disclaimer: All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change. Please refer to http://cbi.as/3nukn or your local Walmart for current pricing.
Staying connected while out of the house is very important to me. I like to be able to respond to blog comments, research products at the store, be active on social media and more! I can do all that easily with my Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan. I’m always using the Calendar app to stay organized and keep my tasks on track.
I love that the screen is so big! The 5″ display with 8MP resolution is a huge upgrade from my old phone, which makes stay connected that much more fun. Plus, with 1GB built-in RAM/8GB ROM and Expandable memory up to 64GB, this phone has enough storage to let me take plenty of pictures of my kids! I seriously take so many pics of my little munchkins!
With the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan, I never feel like I am out of the loop, even when I leave the house. And I never leave the house without my phone!
During your next trip to Walmart, look for Swedish Fish in a special end-cap display!
