So what’s a girl to do when her life has changed and the person she used to have movie time with can no longer really be a part of that movie time?
She makes HER OWN movie time! I’ve really been trying to reach out to my friends a lot more and my mother is my rock. Without her and my girl friends I don’t know where I would be right now. So, it only seems natural that a foodie like me treat my girls to a movie night in.

Head on Over to Walmart for Movie Night In Supplies
We can’t have a girls night movie party without snacks and drinks. Walmart makes it super easy for me to get everything I need. First stop, the beverage aisle where I grab some Coke Zero and Diet Coke. We turn down the next isle where we are greeted with popcorn. What’s a movie night without popcorn? #wecanthavethat
I love the Orville Redenbacher Movie Theater Popcorn. There is something to be said for a bag that doubles as a popcorn bowl; ammIright?
Once my cart was full of goodies I picked up some of these MARS Milk Chocolate and Peanut M&M’S® Chocolate Candies in these fun 3.5oz canisters. The perfect fun snack size for movie night.
And let’s not forget the movie; Joe Dirt 2. I am super excited to see this movie because I know it is going to bring me some much-needed laughs.
- Diet Coke 6-pack, 1/2 – liter

A movie isn’t complete without these fun games and decorations!
I couldn’t put this party together without a little help from some fellow bloggers. While there are a lot of things I can do, trying to create fun printables like these is not my specialty. But that’s ok, it gives me a chance to appreciate and share other bloggers work.

Our fun girls night in watching Joe Dirt 2 wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t allow my guests to dig in the dirt, right?
So here we have some simple chocolate pudding with crushed cookies to make the dirt topping.
Add some MARS Milk Chocolate and Peanut M&M’S® Chocolate Candies and you have rocks and boulders.
Rocks and Dirt Pudding Cups
- 4 - 6 chocolate pudding cups you can also make your own pudding and place them in small dishes
- 8 chocolate cream center cookies crushed
- M&M’S® Chocolate Candies in Regular and Peanut these are your rocks and boulders
- If using homemade pudding, prepare according to directions and chill.
- Place the cookies in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them into pieces. This will be your dirt.
- Place dirt on the top of the pudding.
- Add peanut M&M’S® Chocolate Candies for boulders.
- Add plain M&M’S® Chocolate Candies for rocks.
- Dig in.
Our next movie snack is those awesome Orville Redenbacher Movie Theater Popcorn packs. Not everyone wants to eat a whole bag of popcorn, so for those who don’t, I made some fun little popcorn cups. The ‘dirt’ from the pudding also doubles as a popcorn mix-in along with some nuts, or even some MARS Milk Chocolate and Peanut M&M’S® Chocolate Candies.
The popcorn cups were a hit!
