Now that Sam is a little older, I adore family game night. He’s almost six and our family nights have evolved from reading stories to Sam when he was little to busy and fun events for the three of us. Our current game nights are what I always imagined they would be someday. I serve a fun snack, which Sam loves to help make. While we munch, we enjoy a fun game together. Sometimes Sam teams up with Mike or I and other times he’s able to play alone.

M&M's® Pretzel Fudge #GameNightIn

Games at Walmart

M & M at Walmart

Last weekend, while shopping at Walmart, I noticed the special Hasbro® game display in the aisle. It was the perfect chance to pick up Jenga and Classic Monopoly for us to enjoy together. I also picked up another favorite: M&M’s® Pretzel {Print a coupon here}. I decided to make fudge — a sure fire hit! Since it’s quick and easy to make, it’s the perfect solution if you have last minute guests joining your game night.

M&M’s® Pretzel Fudge

  • 1 Cup crushed M&M’s® Pretzels
  • Mini Pretzels to top fudge

Method

  1. Melt chocolate chips on low heat, stirring regularly.

  3. Cool slightly and mix in M&M’s®.
  4. Pour into 8×8 pan.
  5. Top with mini pretzels in a grid pattern.

How to Crush M&M Pretzel

Tip = because M&M’s® Pretzels are round, use a knife and crush them rather than trying to chop.

It was the first time that Sam had played Jenga — and he loved it! We had a great time talking about our days, giggling while playing the game and enjoying our treat. I love making memories together as a family. Family game night is a favorite!
