Grandparents are such a crucial part of our kids’ life that we want to celebrate them as much as we can. We do make a point to make them feel extra special on Grandparents’ Day or on their birthdays, but we were ready for an additional celebration. So we set off to create a Nutty Caramel Popcorn Topped Cheesecake for a Grand Family Movie Night everyone would enjoy sinking their teeth (vamp fangs)!
Nutty Caramel Popcorn Topping for Cheesecake Recipe
Grandma has been dreaming of a nutty caramel popcorn dessert but hasn’t ventured yet to making it in the kitchen. Besides the grandkids, cheesecake is the only sweet weakness grandpa has. My brilliant 6-year-old pointed this out and suggested we match the two together. This is how our recipe came to life after the sun had set….just like a vampire… I had a test run for the popcorn topping for the cheesecake and made sure it was kid approved before we decided on it. I have never made anything so easy that does impress everyone when they see it, and even more when they get to savor it. Here is how we made a Popcorn Topped Cheesecake:
Confession: I bought grandpa’s favorite cheesecake at the store, then the kids and I worked on the topping:

Grandparent- Grandchildren Family Movie Night
Ever since we watched Hotel Transylvania, the entire family was all over the movie. Everyone likes reminding me from time to time I am a “momster” as a result of baby’s interpretation of the movie’s song :-). Now that Sony had released Hotel Transylvania 2 on DVD, we thought it would be just the ticket to celebrate the grandparent again and their loving relationship with all the grandkids.
Besides the movie, all we needed was our Nutty Caramel Popcorn Topped Cheesecake, some bags of Orville Redenbacher Movie Theater Popcorn, our favorite milk and peanut M&M’S® Chocolate Candies plus our favorite bottles of Diet Coke. During my trip to Walmart to get all the ingredients for the cheesecake topping and the movie night, the new pouch filled with M&M’S® Chocolate Candies caught my eye at check out. I had to get it!
Hotel Transylvania 2 was tons of fun. Our grandpa is now being called Vampa, and everyone is singing “suffer, suffer, screaming pain” when I tell them it is time for bed 🙂 After our garden viewing, we have seen the movie a good 5 more times with all the same required elements to keep our new celebration in check.
