Christmas is creeping closer, that festive feeling is in the air, and with excitement building, what better way to get you in the mood for the big day than a night of classic holiday movies with a big bowl of tasty popcorn and a merry crowd of friends? Here at Just Poppin, we’ve got the recipe for the perfect Christmas movie night, starring … popcorn!
1. Get popping in the kitchen
We know how tempting popcorn is but it’s the season of goodwill, and tear-and-share popcorn bark is a great way to get your guests chatting! Use our Tender Pop ™ Hulless Popcorn to make this deliciously decadent White Chocolate and Peppermint Popcorn Bark recipe from our pals at Popcorn.org.
2. Create unique seasonal serving ideas
Roll up some festive paper into cone shapes, fill with popcorn, and give one to each guest as you welcome them in. They can enjoy a glass of eggnog and a nibble of popcorn, before refilling their cones in time for the movie!
3. Pick out your favorite festive movies
Miracle on 34th Street is a timeless classic for all the family, or if your couch is jam-packed with little ones, try Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch. If you fancy an adventurous Christmas caper, Home Alone is guaranteed to make you giggle, or for something a little more romantic, there’s the heart-warming British comedy Love Actually.
4. Don’t forget the favors!
Make a sweet memory of your seasonal celebration by topping empty Mason jars with a miniature nutcracker toy or reindeer, and filling them with spare popcorn.
