Oscar Night Snack Mix

Yum
Put on your pajamas and roll out the red carpet because tonight is the biggest night in Hollywood!
It's Oscar Night at the Academy Awards!
Did you know that each of the nominees leaves with a swag bag worth $167,000!
Wow!  That is crazy!  I guess there is even a stay at a villa in Tuscany included in that bag!
Not too shabby!
So, watching the awards deserves an extra special treat...even if you are just wearing your pajamas.


Oscar Night Snack Mix is packed with goodies!
No, there isn't a coupon to stay at a villa in Tuscany, but serving this treat in champagne flutes make it totally red carpet worthy!  So what does this snack mix include?
 Hot cocoa popcorn, dark chocolate covered raisins, cashews, golden raisins, marshmallows and honey graham cereal round out this snack mix.
And the Oscar goes to.....YOU!



Ingredients to make hot cocoa popcorn:
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
4 Tbsp hot cocoa mix
Directions:
In a large pot, place vegetable oil and 1 popcorn kernel.  Turn heat to high.  When the popcorn kernel pops, add the remaining popcorn kernels.  Continue to heat and pop kernels.  When popping slows, remove from heat.  Place in a large bowl, toss with hot cocoa mix until all the popcorn is covered.
