There is nothing better than getting comfy on your sofa with your loved ones and watching a movie. It is especially good when it is wet outside and there is nothing much else you can do anyway, so the guilt of sitting down and relaxing is lessened!
What is even better than getting cosy on the sofa with your family to watch a film, is to have some yummy snacks to munch on and share with them of course! We tend to like eating popcorn, sweets or chocolate as these are treats that we save for movie nights or afternoons. However, this does involve lots of bowls being passed around us and the two sofas in our lounge, so recently I came up with the idea of creating some movie munch bars.
Essentially, this is just homemade chocolate bark covered in our favourite sweets and some popcorn but what makes it great, is that it has everything we would normally eat in one (or maybe two because one is never enough!) handy to hold bar.
By making this movie munch chocolate bark, it also helps to cut back on the amount of treats we might get carried away with eating while we are busy watching a film. After all, having two bars to munch on is good portion control, because I know how easy it is to get carried away eating way too many sweets, chocolate and popcorn when it is there in front of me!
To make these Movie Munch Bars you need:
1 large baking tray
4 bars of chocolate – I use Tesco value milk chocolate
2 packets of Smarties
1/2 bag of Haribo
approx 35g popcorn
Line the baking tray with the greaseproof paper
Melt the chocolate and pour over the paper and spread over with a knife
Add your sweets, smarties and popcorn
carefully cover with foil and place in the fridge for at least one hour to harden
remove and cut into squares /rectangles
place the bars into a tin and keep in the fridge until you are ready to eat them
Obviously, you can add whichever chocolates and sweets you like – anything goes really
Then once you are comfy on your sofa and enjoying your film, you can tuck in – yummy!
