Christmas in July 2015 day 8 / Noël en juillet 2015 jour 8


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?


Ingredients

Vegetable oil cooking spray

Bittersweet, milk, or white chocolate, chopped, according to variation

Toppings, according to variation

 

Directions

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.

  2. I have one of these big jars in my sewing room with thread in it!
    For a gift you could fill it with whatever the persons hobby is. Kitchen items (timer, cookie scoop, if a griller items for it), gardening (seeds, gloves, book Gift card etc.), sewing items, fishing, hunting, camper (off, flashlight etc), or several other things.

    I like the movie ideal.

  4. Movie night in a jar would be a hit in our household. I love bark - especially the one with cranberries and pistachios.
