There really isn't anything more fun than introducing your kids to classic games that you loved when you were a child!  Who didn't LOVE to play Twister game and Jenga game when they were kids? Every Friday night in my house is pizza night! So, I'm going to show you how to elevate pizza night into family game night with a fun dessert table using  M&Ms® and Hasbro® games! 
I have a four year old son who is obsessed with playing games, and begs us to play games constantly. When he saw that I was buying the classic Hasbro®
Twister game and Jenga game, he could hardly wait to get home and play! And, honestly, me either! 
While we were at WalMart, we also picked up some giant bags of M&Ms® for a fun recipe that I'm going to show you how to make!

My party inspiration for our family game night was the iconic Twister game mat! 
I knew that I wanted to use it as a tablecloth for our party table. Then, to replicate the mat, I made a backdrop with white butcher paper and primary colored paper plates! How easy and inexpensive is that?  And it makes a HUGE impact on your party!

Using the Twister game mat as my inspiration set off a variety of different ideas in my mind about how to recreate the game in edible form!  
So, I made an "edible" Twister game mat with M&Ms® Milk Chocolate! I used a large white rectangle plate and these small plastic cups filled with color-separated M&Ms® Milk Chocolate. How easy is that? You could even tie it into the game by eating your color of M&Ms® Milk Chocolate every time you spin that color!

I also used the M&Ms® Milk Chocolate in another fun recipe! This time, I made Twister game mat crispy treats!
You can do it too!   

Twister Game Crispy Treats

1 42oz XL SUP M&Ms® Milk Chocolate
12 Pre-made crispy treats
1 bag white candy melts

Melt candy melts according to directions. 
Dip the tops of the crispy treats into the candy melts. 
While the melts are still drying, drop the M&Ms® Milk Chocolate into the wet candy. 
Repeat with all 12 treats.
Let dry at room temperature. 

 What's game night without popcorn? 
I added these cute little cups of candied popcorn to a cake stand that I covered with the round Twister game spinner board! It's a super cute detail to bring into the party! 

And of course, we had to have a cake! I picked up this simple little confetti cake at WalMart and added a fun topper that I whipped up on my die-cut machine. I surrounded my cake with M&Ms® Peanut Butter to give my cake plate some additional yumminess and color!

Then, it was time to play! 
My guys had a rousing round of Twister game!

And I joined in for the Jenga game.
My little guy is really good at it! He's one to beat! 

I would love to see your family game night ideas!
