For the longest time I thought Maddie Grace would never like movies. It just seemed like her attention span was only long enough for TV shows. Then she hit 2 and all of a sudden only wants to watch movies. Especially movies with princesses in them. And funny characters. So her favorite right now is…
Yep, Shrek. Also one of my favorite movies. In fact, this is the very first movie I ever owned on DVD. We bought my mom a DVD player and Shrek to go with it when I was in middle school. So I was thrilled to find out XFINITY acquired DreamWorks Animation, maker of popular movies like How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek and Kung Fu Panda. You can read more about the acquisition here. This means that XFINITY is getting a ton of awesome content from DreamWorks Animation. It also shows Comcast’s commitment to the best in animation and entertainment.
Since we were pretty excited to hear this news my little family had a movie night to watch Shrek and I made some birthday cake popcorn to go with it! So delicious, we at it up seriously in just minutes. This is a great way to do something special for family movie night!
Here’s what you need:
White Chocolate Baking Bars, 4 Ounces
White Cake Mix, 10 ounces (about half a normal box)
1 Bag Popped Popcorn (lightly buttered works best)
Here’s what you do:
(1) Melt the white chocolate bars in the microwave, stirring constantly.
(2) Stir in cake mix.
(3) Drizzle of popcorn and toss so that popcorn is completely covered.
(4) Lay popcorn pieces flat on a cookie sheet until cool. Then serve, and enjoy!
What do you do to make family movie nights extra special?
