Camper’s Crunch

I found the easiest (yet yummiest) camping recipe to share with you today. Perfect for our Camp Loopy snacking. Do check out this link to the original photos from TSJ Photography, as the whole birthday idea is brilliant and the photography is stunning. (Photos used with permission. If you’re in the North Carolina area, I’m jealous that you have the opportunity to use Tracie’s photography service firsthand. What beautiful work.)

4 cups Golden Grahams cereal
3 cups mini marshmallows
2 cups milk chocolate chips (or M&M’s, if you want to add in more color)

Mix and serve in a big bowl, or package it up in single-size serving bags. Put on a family movie and gather ’round for a night of fun. (Note – you get to knit on your Campfire Night project while the rest of the family enjoys the movie with you. That way, everyone is happy!)

camper's-crunchEnjoy your weekend. I am at our TNNA Market, scouting out new products and lines to add in at The Loopy Ewe. I’ll keep you posted on what I find. I might also need to make sure that Jeni’s Ice Cream still tastes good. That’s one of the best parts of heading to Columbus, OH for Market.

What are your favorite family movies? Maybe a weekly Family Movie Night is in order for the summer. What do you think? (And then maybe a Weekly Family Reading Night, too, just to make sure that books get at least equal billing.)

  1. Hey there….I was wondering if you were coming to TNNA. Glad to hear you’re going to be enjoying my hometown. I work at the big huge building on the corner from the Convention Center and actually look out at you all day. I know you’re going to have a blast. Our Stitch’N Club has often wished we could “sneak” in and check out all the vendors!!! Enjoy and can’t wait to hear all about it.

  2. When my kids were still at home we loved watching the Lor of the Rings movies. On occasion we would have a movie marathon and all three movies back to back. The next set of movies I love to watch are the Narnia movies. Both sets are worth watching again!!!

  3. I’m reading Harry Potter to my boys this summer. I’m a firm believer that the novels have to be read before seeing the movie. 🙂

  4. Please eat an extra serving of Jeni’s Ice Cream for me!

    Also, if you ever make it out to the Boston area, let me know. I’ll make a special ice cream for you. Yum!

  5. What a great recipe! My little grandson is coming over this weekend for his first (without parent) overnight. I think we might make this just for the occasion. 🙂

  6. Excellent movie for anyone (almost): Local Hero. There’s a lusty in-keeper and his equally lusty wife, but no nudity, only kissing and a brief bit of unbuttoning. Also an Unfortunte Rabbit Incident (rabbit is injured and ends up cooked for dinner), but any child would be tougher about that than I am. Otherwise a delightful story about people not being what you might think they are, and very very funny.

    Have a great time at TNNA, and when you get an extra scoop for Seanna Lea, get another for me.


  7. There are so many great family friendly movies that I can watch over and over and over. Harry Potter is tops on that list, anything by Pixar or Disney, and a blast from the past Adventures in Babysitting!

  8. Our favorite movies are True Blood and Mad Men blu-rays. I wait until the entire season is out and watch at my leisure. As far as new series go, I’m looking forward to Combat Hospital and PanAm. We also enjoy anything with Clint Eastwood.

  9. I love the Thin Man series. Gone With the Wind. Pride and Prejudice. (Pretty much any Jane Austen adaptation – have you seen the P&P with Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier? Hilarious). Anne of Green Gables. Elizabeth I. Little Women. Bringing up Baby. The Philadelphia Story.

  10. Have fun at market! Don’t forget to bring us presents!! (I know, you always do. I just couldn’t resist saying it!)

  11. We love Elf, even in the middle of July. My teenaged son always watches Elf when he’s depressed. Other than that we don’t agree on anything! I like comedies and dramas, he likes sci-fi and adventure.

    I take that back…after I read Sue Apple’s post: we all love The Princess Bride and the (ahem) elders love The Court Jester.

  12. We are kinda John Candy fans…. have to watch The Great Outdoors. I haven’t seen Summer Rental in a few years and will have to track that one down too. On a strange night – Beetlejuice always makes me laugh (probably since i still like that movie).

  13. I agree with The Thin Man, Ice Age, I’m sure there are more, but it’s hot and it’s Friday and it’s nearly 5 o’clock. What’s, a poor girl to do (other than start the weekend)?

  14. I’m really more of a chick flick person (no family) and my faves are Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail, The Holiday and Four Weddings and a Funeral.

    I just found Sleepless on Encore so am going for chocolate chip ice cream and then going to watch and knit.

  15. Great recipe idea! My family has been quite understanding (if a bit amused) by my Camp Loopy excitement but a nice snack wouldn’t hurt as far as keeping them on board.

    We already do Family Movie Night at least once a week… but it looks like it could happen even more often this summer! (in the past week we’ve seen 2 of the recent 3 Narnia movies, Tangled, and Ice Age 3. Oh my.)

    I like your Reading Night idea a lot too. Good thing I picked a fairly straightforward Campfire project so I can knit & read at the same time.

  16. Family movie…The Lord of the Rings series is good for a couple of weeks of viewing.
    I’d have to pass on the chocolate in your recipe; it doesn’t like me much.

  17. We love action and comedy movies in our house. I put on Bringing Up Baby and Arsenic and Old Lace a lot, as well as any of the Sci Fi “not so” original movies that air on the weekends!

  18. I suspect this recipe is a little bit evil. You know the sort where you keep munching until, “Hey, who ate all my snack?” It also has me wondering how it might be with either a little popcorn or pretzel sticks in it for a hit of saltiness.

  19. I have been making this mix for a few years now, I give it for Christmas to co-workers. They love it and look forward to it every year! It’s yummy!
