Christmas Movie Night Snacks

Holiday Popcorn
3 c popped popcorn (air popped is the best)
3 TBSP butter, melted
1 TBSP Splenda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Put the popcorn in an extra large bowl. Pour the butter over popcorn, and lightly toss to coat the popcorn. Combine the sugar and spice in a small bowl. Sprinkle it over the popcorn, tossing to coat it completely.

Rich Homemade Cocoa
1 1/2 TBSP cocoa powder
1 TBSP Splenda
1 c milk
dash cinnamon
dash cayenne pepper (optional)

Whisk ingredients over low-medium heat, stirring constantly until hot. Adjust sweetness to taste. Top with whipped cream and a dash of cocoa powder, cinnamon or cayenne for presentation.

Toaster Oven S'mores
 For each s'more:
1 sheet of graham cracker
1/4 of a Hershey bar
1 marshmallow

Brake the cracker in half, place marshmallow on 1 side and chocolate on the other. Put in the toaster oven on broil until the marshmallow turns golden brown, turn over and toast the oven side. Sandwich together and VIOLA.

Kiddie Proof S'mores
 Substitute Nutella for the chocolate and fluff for the marshmallow. Spread 1 tsp of each on half the cracker. Sandwich for your little guys.

Do you have an air popper?
