FamilyFun magazine sent me these fun recipes that would be wonderful to do to make a movie night a special night for the kids. I think these recipes would be great for kid’s party too. I wanted to make a couple of these recipes (especially the Tiny Stromboli recipe), but I was too swamped with running a garage sale this weekend to get much extra done. When I do make them, I will update this post with some pictures of our family enjoying our fun food while we watch movies.
I think my kids would have so much fun making this Tiny Stromboli recipe.
- 2 cans refrigerated small biscuit dough
- 60 slices pepperoni about half a 6-oz. package
- 20 one-inch cubes of mozzarella cheese cut from cheese sticks
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- ¼ tsp.dried Italian seasoning
- ? tsp.garlic powder
- 1 jar 14 oz. pizza sauce, warmed
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.
Help your kids roll out each biscuit to ?-inch thick. Place 3 slices pepperoni and 1 cube cheese on each round. Pull the edges up around the filling, and pinch dough together at the top. Place in the pan, with the seam side down.
Repeat with all the dough rounds, slice two vents in the top of each, and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with dried herbs and garlic powder.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with pizza sauce.
And pizza and popcorn always go together, right? Here’s a yummy, easy Popcorn Crunch recipe you can make to go along with your Tiny Stromboli.
- 10 cups popped popcorn
- 1 cup broken pecans
- 1 cup chopped dried apricots
- 2 cups thin pretzel knots, broken into pieces
- 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- ¾ cup butter
- ½ cup light corn syrup
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- ½ tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- Heat oven to 250°F. Line two baking sheets with nonstick foil.
- In a large mixing bowl, stir together the popcorn, pecans, apricots, and pretzels.
- In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt (an adult’s job). Cook over medium heat until it boils. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and baking soda.
- Pour caramel over popcorn, stirring. Spread onto baking sheets. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring twice. Remove from oven and cool completely. Break into chunks and serve.
Finally, wouldn’t your kids love this Blue Raspberry Slushie?
- 2 cups cream soda
- ½ tsp. Kool-Aid Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade powdered mix
- 3 cups crushed ice
- 2 drops blue food coloring
- 2 Rainbow Twizzlers
- Help your child measure the cream soda and Kool-Aid into a blender. Add ice and food coloring, and blend until smooth.
- Cut the ends off Rainbow Twizzlers, stick them in the drinks as straws!
