Truth Time: I don’t get to spend a lot of time with my girls.
There I said it. I work a ton of hours with my job. Unfortunately, it doesn’t leave a lot of time for family time. So, the time that I do have with them is really special to me. Much to the disliking of Larisha, when I am home, I typically try to make or give them some type of sweet treat when we are together. I also love combining our treats with one of my favorite things to do…watch movies.
Now, I know they can’t watch my favorite types of movies just yet, so typically I’m stuck watching things likes Trolls or Shrek. Luckily, I’m pretty much a big kid, so I enjoy these, just as much as my girls. In all honesty, I probably enjoy them now more as an adult because I get to laugh, enjoy the subtle adult humor, and hear the belly laughs from my girls at the same time. It’s pure joy in my mind.

I also love when a movie comes out that combines my childhood with a new aged movie. Naturally, I was really excited to learn about Captain Underpants coming to life. I remember some of the books from middle school and I know it’s going to be a hilarious movie. Larisha and I haven’t gotten the courage to take the girls to sit through an entire movie in a theatre yet, so instead we go all out for movies at home. We always try to figure out ways to take it to the next level. While we love grabbing Pop-Secret popcorn and Lance crackers (the girls love munching on the peanut butter crackers), we always need an epic snack. Did you know Lance crackers have been making little sandwiches for 100 years with real peanut butter and no high fructose corn syrup!?
Our Chocolate Chip Popcorn Ice Cream Sandwiches are literally the perfect at-home movie night snacks that you can make.
We started by taking Pop Secret popcorn and coating it in melted chocolate. Then, we take our favorite chocolate chip cookies and sandwich ice cream between two of them. Afterwards, we push the chocolate covered popcorn into the sides of the sandwich and freeze until ready. So simple, yet packed full of flavor. The Pop Secret popcorn has an unbeatable taste with better ingredients. It really makes these Chocolate Chip Popcorn Ice Cream Sandwiches pop (see what I did there!?)
