My son loves movies and everything to do with them. We had a showing of the new "diary of a wimpy kid" in the kids' room of our church. We have a local popcorn store in town. I let him pick out his favorite popcorn flavors for the popcorn buffet.
Popcorn cupcakes. Cupcakes topped with mini marshmallows. Dipped watered down yellow food coloring and dabbed it with a food paintbrush to look like butter Total dessert cost: $5
"Party popcorn" This stuff is awesome. Melt white chocolate. Toss popcorn in the chocolate and spread out on pan. Quickly sprinkle with sprinkles. Amazing!!! I put some in a ziplock bag and put the bag in mini paper bags (hobby lobby). Sealed them with a clothes pin and added handmade thank you's. so many requests for this recipe from parents! We added small baggies (jewelry section at hobby lobby) filled with popcorn flavored jelly bellys (local candy store here in grand haven). Total party favor cost: $15 for 15
