Close friends of mine who know me well, know that I just cannot do a regular movie night with my kiddos. It’s gotta be an experience that my family will remember. And we always do. Family movie nights are where some of our most cherished memories live, which makes the extra effort worth every moment. With the DVD release of Peter Rabbit came visions of carrot stick snacks and bunny tailed popcorn that I just couldn’t pass up; so during my last shopping trip to Walmart, I grabbed the Blu-Ray + DVD Combo, stocked up on plenty of Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn, a couple Kid’s Cuisines, and all the necessary supplies to create a Peter Rabbit movie night for the books.

One of the easiest and most fun ways to create some magic around movie night is to create special popcorn. This is so easy to do and I’ve been doing this for years to create a special snack for whatever movie we’re watching. This Bunny Tails Popcorn is a cinch to make and adds some extra fun to movie night.

I start by popping up three bags of Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn, any flavor would work, but since this popcorn is loaded with other fun flavors, I chose their Naturals Simply Salted flavor. Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn is the only leading brand of microwave popcorn with no Artificial Preservatives, Flavors, or Dyes in any of its products, which makes it a total no brainer for my family.

Once the bags are popped, I pour the popcorn out over some parchment paper I lined my counter top with and spread it out into a nice layer.

Next I melt some blue melting candy in the microwave. Blue is the color of Peter’s beloved coat, which makes this popcorn treat special. I drizzle the melted candy over the popcorn using a spatula.

While the melting candy is still wet, I grab some miniature marshmallows and sprinkle them over the top of the popcorn.

For one final touch, I use orange sprinkles to pay homage to Peter’s favorite food: carrots. The blue and orange together are so much fun!

I let the popcorn sit for about an hour or so, long enough to let the melting candy harden back up before scooping it into some bunny popcorn bags I made.

The bags are just as easy to pull together as the popcorn and just require a couple of markers, a few cotton balls, some twine, and a pair of scissors.

For dinner, I use Kid’s Cuisine to keep it simple and painless. No whining or complaining about dinnertime on family movie night. They’re such a fun meal and many of them offer a full serving of vegetables that my kiddos always enjoy for a change! Anytime my kiddos hear that it’s a Kid’s Cuisine night, I’ve won the mom of the year award…well, at the very least, mom of the day.

Creating some extra magic around family movie night is simple, especially when using brands that simplify my life. They’ve got me covered so I can enjoy time with my kiddos and a heaping bag full of my Bunny Tails Popcorn!
