Monster POP Popcorn Dessert Bar

When I was a kid, Hocus Pocus and Halloween went hand in hand.  For our littles Charlie Browns Halloween is our yearly tradition.  I love surprising them with a movie night and a special sweet treat.  Remember that one year I made those monster cupcakes?  This year we had monster pop.

We made these monsters out of brown paper paper bags that have been kickin' it in my cabinet for way too long. They colored, I made eye balls.  We folded strips into silly arms.

Little man lost interest so sissy finished them.  Spooochy as he would say.

I prepped the goodies.  The best thing about a pop corn bar is you can make it as healthy or sugary as you want.  Who doesn't love a little skinny pop?! PLUS there is something a little extra for everyone!  To do a sweet and salty combo I used the Skinny Pop and some colored candy melts.

Melted the chocolate and tossed small batches of popcorn in it.  Best flavor combination!!  Any sweet and salty fans out here?! 

 I set up the little dessert bar for the kids and they got to use their monster bags!  Get it now?!  Monster POP.  Ha!  Since daddy is more of a healthy eater there was a tray of plain popcorn and I added cashews and craisins to the mix.  You can also use pretzels or marshmallows, M&M's, granola.  Whatever your heart desires. 

We took a pre movie fun selfie...

Got cozy and onto the main show... Charlie Browns Halloween.  

Our Halloween movie night is one of my favorite traditions but what made this year extra special for was what the little lady said before bed.  A sweet thank you for setting up the treats and planning a fun movie night for us.  Melts ma heart. 

If you want to plan your own pop corn bar for a Halloween movie night.... grab a bag of Skinny pop, some extra treats,  craft a little, sit and enjoy!  Feel free to pin.

Until next time.  Toodles!
