CIJ day 8 / jour 8
Movie-night in jar… could use the bigger jars than the Mason jars.
These jars can hold alot! These can be found at Walmart. (These are $9.99 and $7.99 respectively). You can always mention to the person you are giving them too that if they want a refill next year, you need the container back ;)
Include a dvd, M&M’s, liquorice sticks, chips, chocolate bars, small bottle of soda pop, popcorn, popcorn seasoning, gift card to movie rental place, …
Or it could be a theme movie big gift jar.
- Polar Express : dvd, Christmas ornament, Believe bell, hot cocoa
- New Year’s Eve dvd, Party horns and noisemakers, serpentines, confettis, and a half-liter of wine with plastic wine glasses.
- Chocolat (2000) or Charlie and the Chocolate factory: lots of chocolate! Hot cocoa mix with mini marshmallows, chocolate liqueur, gift-card for a chocolate massage, And why not include some chocolate bark?
Basic bark recipe : http://www.marthastewart.com/296273/basic-bark
Vegetable oil cooking spray
Bittersweet, milk, or white chocolate, chopped, according to variation
Toppings, according to variation
Coat a 9-by-12 1/2-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray, and line with parchment, leaving an overhang on ends.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring. Pour into baking sheet, and spread in an even layer.
Immediately sprinkle toppings over chocolate. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Peel off parchment, and break bark into pieces.
Some variations :
- Chitty-chitty Bang-bang : I love to watch that old movie! So magical. Fill your jar with the dvd, lollipops and candies, lots of candies!! And a rag doll or a music box.
You can see how you can adapt that idea to any film you like. I’d love to hear your ideas for films and gifts to go with them.
