I am proud to be partnering with JOLLY TIME Pop Corn and Mom It Forward Blogger Network to bring you this tasty recipe!
You Guys!!! These Chunky Monkey Popcorn Bars are an absolute MUST make! I’m just a weee bit obsessed with popcorn bars because they are so easy to make, crazy delicious and can be flavored with just about anything. I was inspired by the flavors from Chunky Monkey ice cream: Banana, Chocolate and Walnuts.
So. So. So. Good. Absolutely perfect for movie night with the kiddos!

I used the lightly sweetened Kettle Mania Pop Corn. It adds just a touch of saltiness to this sweet treat.
JOLLY TIME Pop Corn offers a wide variety of popcorn. For these Chunky Monkey Popcorn Bars you can use Crispy’n White, Kettle Mania or the air popped White Pop Corn. Save the buttery popcorn for eating straight outta the bowl.
Ooey-Gooey and oh, so Chewy! Isn’t it Glorious!?!?!
My daughter and nephew LOVED these popcorn bars! They enjoyed a relaxing movie night that involved lots of popcorn and a movie about zombies at summer camp. All in all, a really great night of fun and memories.
Movie night is a weekly occurrence at my house. We keep it relaxed and simple. The kids choose a cheesy 80’s movie. I make a sweet treat and popcorn. Then we snuggle up and enjoy the movie without distractions. Phones, off, tablets down and lights dimmed.
The kids love to watch the air popper. They just think it is the most amazing thing ever! I can remember feeling the same way when I was a kid.
My daughter really loves her popcorn. As you can see by the way she shovels it in by the handful. I think my nephew was appalled by her movie night manners. Or lack of.
He prefers to eat his one at a time.
