Dinner and Movie this week fell on Sunday instead of Saturday, thanks to a camping trip this past weekend (no technology allowed on camping trips!) We watched Big Hero 6, one of the Frog family’s favorites! Because, let’s face it, camping is a lot of work, I kept it simple. Classic hero subs with a homemade oil and vinegar dressing and “healthcare chips” – some chips that the froglets picked out during our shopping trip. Instead of popcorn, I made Baymax Chex mix (recipe at the end of the post) and the kids used marshmallows to create their own Baymaxes.
To make your own Marshamllow Baymax you will need:
Extra Large Marshmallows
The Boy could hardly wait to chomp into his.
Lizard Breath used scissors and some serious skills to make her Baymax. Before it was all said and done, she melted chocolate to add the face. Unfortunately, she didnt take a picture of that part, but rather, a video….
Big Hero 6 Chex Mix
1 box rice or corn Chex
1 bag of white chocolate chips
2 c. powdered sugar
2 c. red cake mix (Pillsbury created a line of cake mix with bright colors and we were able to find red)
red sixlets or other other red chocolate candy
Divide Chex cereal equally between two bowls. In one large ziploc bag, add the powdered suage. In another add the cake mix. Melt chocolate chips over low heat until completely melted. Pour one half of the melted chocolate into each bowl and mix to coat evenly. Pour one bowl into the bag containing the powdered sugar and shakle to coat. Repeat with remaining bowl and cake mix. Shake excess powder off both the red and white cereal. Combine into a large bowl and add the red sixlets. Enjoy!
