Movies are a passion of mine. Particularly Disney movies. I started watching them when I was 2-years-old and I haven’t stopped since. I spent entire summers watching Disney movies on VHS with my sister. Now I’m passing the tradition on to my kids. Except now there are so many more movies in our collection.

Movie nights are huge in our home. Every Friday we look forward to a night in front of our big screen with popcorn and a movie we may or may not have seen before. But every now and then we’re trying to add in a little something extra. A special treat to go with the movie experience. Themed to the film we’re planning to watch. Recently we made blue Jasmine donuts to eat while watching the live action Aladdin. Those donuts are perfect for an Aladdin party snack, or for a movie night like our own.

Cooking isn’t one of my passions. But my kids–At least two of them, really seem to enjoy it. I don’t want to stifle their dreams so I’m putting in a little effort to help encourage their hobby. One of my stipulations for the treats we make is they HAVE to be easy. Not many ingredients. And simple enough that even my kids could make on my own. My oldest loves playing in the kitchen so this is a fun way for us all to bond together before the movie. I am very passionate about family bonding.

Notes

I added the ingredients to my grocery pickup order for convenience and price. If you want the items shipped to your door I have the main ingredients listed below.

Now Toy Story 4 is streaming on Disney+ along with the other three Toy Story movies. So you could make these before a Toy Story movie marathon. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out our Toy Story 4 review.

As you can probably gather from our pictures, my kids had a lot of fun making these treats to go along with the movie. No real skill required and they’re delicious. If you melt the whole bag of chocolate like we did and have extra, use it to dip some pretzels or fruit in. That what we did and it was some of the best chocolate covered strawberries I’d ever had!
