Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier was released on DVD on September 9th.
Watching it with friends and family will be a movie night to remember with these simple movie viewing party ideas that use just a few key items, including M&M'S®.
There is even a coupon that gives you $5 off when you purchase Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier and two bags of M&M's (15.4 oz or larger). You can download the coupon from Walmart.com.
This is what you need:
- Kettle Corn
- White chocolate morsels
- Blue or red drink bottles such as Gatorade.
The first thing you need to have for a movie viewing party is popcorn (or kettle corn which is my kids favorite) of course.
I didn't want to serve up just a tub of popcorn though, I wanted to make it more fun, and reflect the colors of Captain America. I placed the popcorn in individual cardboard french fry cartons that I already had at home and mixed in white chocolate morsels, silver sprinkles and red and blue M&M's.
I wanted a sweet treat too. My plan was to make a round sheet cake and decorate the top to resemble Captain America's shield using M&M's. Of course though when I walked through the bakery to pick up garlic bread for dinner I spotted a vanilla cake, very simply decorated in white frosting for under $9, weighed that up against the time it would take me to bake and decorate a cake from scratch and couldn't pass it up. I used a star-shaped cookie cutter in the center as my guide, ate 3 or 4 colored M&M's for every blue and red one I found in the bag and the cake was decorated in no time at all.
For the movie beverage I went with blue Gatorade. The wrappers are so easy to peel off the bottles, and with the help of one of the kids, stars were cut out of card stock and attached to the bottles using twine. I then popped in a red and white straw.
