Eee! I'm so excited to be sharing one of my most cherished childhood movies with my little girl this week that I just had to celebrate with the perfect movie night snacks! The Land Before Time movies are ones that I watched regularly when I was about my daughter's age. I've been spinning my wheels trying to come up with some fun movie night ideas and popcorn recipes to tie into the theme and The Land Before Time characters. We're all about themes in my family, if you haven't noticed.
This Dinosaur Snack Mix is full of sweet and salty add-ins to make those little (and big) mouths happy during the movie! Plus, I've added in some better-for-you tidbits that make for a great blend of what you want and what you need for yourself and your little ones alike.
With the exciting release of The Land Before Time: Complete Collection DVD at Walmart, I wanted to get plenty of dino goodness into this movie madness snack mix! Of course, what goes better with movies than Pop Secret popcorn and a little something sweet to go with it?
There's such a great balance of sweet and salty here, you just can't go wrong! Pop Secret popcorn is the base of this recipe, which I then layered with dino shaped graham cookies, 'claw' or 'horn' corn crisps, greek yogurt coated 'dino bone' pretzels, dried cherries (for Peetree - one of my favorite characters), pumpkin seeds (for the herbivores), dino snapped fruit gummies and green candy coated dark chocolates! Um... can you say yum?
You'll want to head to Walmart like I did to grab all you need for this snack, along with The Land Before Time: The Complete Collection DVD which is available now, and only while supplies last! It's the perfect companion for this dino movie munch mix.
