My perfect "Date Night In" consists of a good movie and fun theater-style treats. Coca-Cola, M&M’S® Chocolate Candies, and Orville Redenbacher Popcorn help create "fangtastic" treats for a Hotel Transylvania 2 movie night.

Mr. L&C and I don't get to the movies often, now that we have a toddler. We love having fun movie nights at home after she goes to bed. I love creating a theme around our movies, and Hotel Transylvania 2 was the perfect time to create some fun concession-style treats with a twist.

I love all types of popcorn, especially the sweet-salty combination, and chocolate covered popcorn is always a welcome treat. Mr. L&C and I like different kinds of chocolate and candies, so I customized our bark. I spread M&M’S® Chocolate Candies over all the chocolate, and sprinkled unsweetened coconut flakes on his portion. Mine was a bit more colorful, with sprinkles and candy eyes. It was boo-tiful! (see what I did there?)

Coca-Cola is always part of our movie nights out, so I grabbed a 6-pack from Walmart, while I was gathering the rest of the ingredients for our monster munchies! Coca-Cola Floats, Coca-cola Cupcakes, and even Coca-Cola Pulled Pork are also fun ways to incorporate your favorite drink for a movie night in!
