Who loves a good movie night? What about a good snack?

What is your favorite genre? Action, romance, comedy?? What about snacks? Sweet?? Salty? Both?

I actually like them all. I am big fan of Si-Fi and fantasy, but I also really like a lot of romance movies.

So when I got to do a post that not only let me watch a good romance/tear-jerker AND make a yummy snack for movie watching I was right on that.

I headed to my local Walmart to check out the $5 for DVD and $7.88 for BRD movies that they have in stock on special. This price is only available only for a limited time, so head into your local Walmart (until 11/24/14)! #MovieNight4Less #CollectiveBias

They had a lot of great titles I knew I would enjoy like Forest Gump and I am Legend, but since I had never seen The Notebook (and I think if you are a woman that you are required to see it..lol) I decided on that one.

While I was there I also snagged a couple of packs of M&M’s® in the theater size boxes and Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn to make a yummy and simple snack to eat in between the tears.

It’s a sticky M&M’s® Candy Popcorn. It really was super good AND super easy. It took me about 10 minutes to prepare it (not including cooling time).

This snack can be prepared in a couple of ways. I just spread it out on a greased cookie sheet and then put in a bowl to serve. But you could also form it into popcorn balls or press into a greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray or butter (then cut into squares).

Hope you enjoy it for your next #MovieNight4Less!
