One of our favorite things to do together as a family is to schedule some downtime where we can all hang out together and just relax. A family movie night is one of our favorite ways to do just that. With kids in activities, a husband who works a crazy schedule and everything in between, it seems like we are always on-the-go. I try to make it a point to schedule a movie night at least once a week but it’s more realistically like every other week that it happens. When it does, we enjoy every minute of it! Our most recent movie night celebrated the release of The Peanuts Movie. My friends at Fox Home Entertainment even sent me a box of goodies with everything we needed for a fun night in. We’ve been so excited to see this movie so I wanted to make it extra special. I planned a fun (and easy to re-create menu), some games, grabbed our copy of the movie and we were all set!
Baby Giggles loved her straw cup so much she carried it around the entire night.
I wanted to make something more than just popcorn so we made these cute little Charlie Brown inspired cupcakes complete with a chocolate zig zag pattern. Just like you’d find on his iconic yellow shirt.
For dinner we made Charlie Brown pizzas using a flat bread pizza crust cut into circles. This was a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen. My son loves to cook and he was so excited to make these little pizza faces.
To create these recipes at home, here’s what you’ll need:
For the cupcakes:
- Yellow Cupcake liners
- 1 box of cake mix (I made chocolate)
- Icing (homemade or a tub of your favorite)
- Yellow food coloring
- Chocolate candy melts
- Piping bag
- Wax Paper
- Flatbread pizza crusts
- Circle sandwich cutter
- Pizza sauce
- Mozzarella cheese – shredded
- Black olives – drained
Two easy recipes that won’t have you spending hours in the kitchen and will leave you with some really cute movie snacks!
