Growing up in the 90s, Goosebumps was one of my favorite things, ever. I remember getting excited to go to the video store to pick out the next episode of the show I wanted to rent (via VHS tape), and would read the Goosebumps series to tide me over until the next video rental. Fast forward almost two decades, and I still get nostalgic thinking about that spooky series!
When I found out that a new Goosebumps movie was coming out, the little girl in me got so excited! My younger sisters were pretty excited as well, since I introduced them to the show that creepily uttered “viewers beware, you’re in for a scareeeeee…” and binge watched all of the episodes with them a couple years ago (they’ll never know the struggle of waiting a week or more between shows and rewinding tapes)! So with the release of the film on DVD and Blu-Ray, I invited Ry and Carm over for a sister’s sleepover, complete with two of our favorite things, delicious snacks and Goosebumps!
Did you know that if you purchase Orville Redenbacher popcorn, Coca-Cola products, M&M’S® Chocolate Candies, and a selected movie (more details here) in one shopping trip by 2/2/2016 and snap and upload a photo of your receipt, you’ll receive a $10 digital VUDU code (limit: one per person) to use toward a movie download?! Exciting stuff!
My sisters and I thought what better way to celebrate our Goosebumps night than making a “creepy” treat to accompany a series that involves the creepy crawlies? Despite the awful-sounding name, the “dirt cup” happens to be one of our favorites and one that I’ve been making since I was a kid!
What You’ll Need (Ingredients)
- Chocolate pudding
- Cookie crumbles
- Milk Chocolate M&M’S® Chocolate Candies
- Gummy worms
- Prepare chocolate pudding (make from scratch or use pre-made mix).
- Fill bottom layer of cup with chocolate pudding and top slowly with cookie crumbles, M&M’S®, and then gummy worms.
- Repeat layers until you reach the top of the cup.
That’s it! If you take a step back, you should be able to see the various layers of “dirt,” and what lies beneath. So very appropriate for Goosebumps, and a super fun kid-friendly (including the “big kids” aka adults) recipe to whip up!
The final step? Throwing the popcorn in the microwave for the finishing touches. In no time at all, you’re ready for your movie to begin! There’s no better way to watch a movie than with that sweet and salty combo, plus a tasty beverage from Coca-Cola to wash it down!
As for the Goosebumps movie itself, it brought back so many memories and several of the famous ghosts, monsters, etc. that we met so many years ago when we first met R.L. Stein’s Goosebumps! If you grew up with it, get a group of friends (or family) together and gather round to reminisce!
