Let’s get ready for the new Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation movie with sea salt chocolate caramel popcorn topped with chocolate transfer bats and creepy peanut butter toasty crackers! I love making fun food and the kids will love watching movies 1 and 2 to get excited for 3, coming to theaters July 13!
Have you seen the first two Hotel Transylvania movies? They are just the right amount of spooky and funny for a great family movie night!
In this third installment, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, Sony Pictures Animation shares our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation himself! Owning a hotel and catering to everyone else has to get tiring! It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans. But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.
Let’s start with making our snacks! I picked my ingredients up at Walmart.
I love popcorn and Pop Secret was an easy choice. It’s a delicious, high-quality snack that I feel good about sharing with my family. The taste is unbeatable with better ingredients and inventive flavors. We’re working on trying them all!
And Lance Sandwich Crackers are a treat that we’ve been eating since I was a kid. They’re flavorful, wholesome, and filling. Did you know they’ve been making these little sandwiches for over 100 years with two awesome crackers on the outside with incredible spreads between. I chose toasty crackers for my monster treats, but the Cheese and Peanut Butter are my childhood favorite!
