Friday Family Movie Nights are no joke around here. My kids start planning for it days ahead of time. While it is fun to watch a movie as a family, I think they really enjoy it because they get special treats. On Friday after school we make our way to the store where the kids get to pick out a candy to enjoy while watching the movie. I usually have a special treat from the blog too, but they seem to prefer to purchase their own prepackaged goodies. Go Figure.
Last weekend, I surprised the family with something new. Crunchkins™ are dessert-flavored poppers with a creamy coating and a light crunchy in three delectable flavors: Birthday Cake, Fudge Brownie and Glazed Donut. Considering that these are all of our favorite flavors, I knew they would be a hit. After testing each one out, we were split between the birthday cake and the glazed donut. I couldn’t help but feel like they were something out of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” So much so, that we actually decided on watching that movie while eating these.
We really enjoyed the crunch and I thought it would be the perfect addition to a chocolate cupcake. My husband almost always requests chocolate cake as his treat on Friday nights, so it was nice to change them up a bit with Crunchkins™. They also are cute decorations to the cupcakes. Next time, I may even add them into the cupcakes for a burst of flavor and crunch!
Whenever my kids go over to someone’s house for a sleepover, I also send them with a little “Thank You” gift to the parents. It usually consists of movie night treats. I can’t wait to stock up on bags of Crunchkins™ to include in our little gifts! You can find these bags at your local Walmart at checkout, so make sure to pick up one the next time you are out.
