Gearing Up For A Wonderful Movie Night

A few weeks ago, I sat in a movie theater with a group of women for a special Girls Night Out event and the sponsors shared a preview of the new Wonder Woman movie.  I wish I had a recording of the reactions of those woman as we watched this preview; it was pretty powerful.  Strong women love cheering on other strong women so the reactions were powerful and positive.  After seeing that preview with a theater full of other women I am pretty pumped for that new release.  I guarantee my ladies and I will make another Girls Night Out trip on June 2nd when the movie hits theaters!
I don't know about you but I am totally pumped for this new release, I was sent a pre-release package of goodies that got me even more ready to experience this film. Dr Pepper® and Orville Redenbacher’s® are pairing up for the ultimate movie night for Wonder Woman!  To get this party started, King Soopers has a great digital coupon that you must check out; coupon is only available for a limited time.

I decided to make a little Wonder Woman inspired treat for my girlfriends in celebration of this new release.  It is so much fun to see all of the Wonder Woman merchandise, I have really loved seeing Teagan get a kick out of my Dr Pepper cans.  She really loves Wonder Woman!

7.  Stir popcorn with a spatula making sure the marshmallow mixture covers the popcorn completely.
8.  Begin making your popcorn balls by scooping a handful of the popcorn in your hands and forming it into a ball.  Spraying your hands with cooking spray might make this easier.
9.  Carefully stuff the popcorn into the cones.
10.  Dip the popcorn balls into the candy and sprinkles for some decorations!

12.  Serve to your guests and enjoy!

I love making popcorn balls like this because they do not get too hard.  They do harden a bit but they do not hurt your teeth when you are eating them.  Great for kids!  Adding the sugar ice cream cone is a great addition for a fun movie snack.

I am not sure why but the story of Wonder Woman has so much inspiration to me.  It always makes me think about who my real life Wonder Woman is.  Without hesitation my Wonder Woman is my mother.  Sure, a lot of people would say this but I truly believe my mom is a Wonder Woman.  She is strong, independent, caring, and such a protector.  She has always had these qualities, but now that I see her not only as a woman and mother, but as a grandmother I am certain she has super hero powers.

  1. Those popcorn balls look cute and delicious. I'm not a fan of Wonder Woman but I'm also psyched to watch the upcoming movie. My life hero is my mom. She's also like a wonder woman to me. :)

  6. I grew up absolutely adoring Wonder Woman - my mom had to make me little cuffs to wear like hers in the old episodes! Those popcorn balls look so good too - I've never made them but I know my boys would like me to!

  7. I didn't know there was a Wonder Woman movie coming out! I'll definitely have to look out for it as she's Oscar's heroine. I'd never heard of popcorn balls either, but they look delicious :)
