DIY: Snacks for a Summer Movie Marathon

Clamshell cookies, Pizza and smoothie ingredients

This summer is going to see the releases of some much-anticipated new Disney movies. Whether you’re watching the latest offering or just prepping for it by revisiting the classics, the secret to the perfect movie marathon is the snacks you make to go with it. And, sure, you could just go with the classic popcorn-and-soda combo, but why not make the experience extra special by creating unique snacks that match the movie? To help you get in the mood, here are recipes inspired by Disney and Pixar’s Elemental (only in theaters June 16), Peter Pan & Wendy (now streaming on Disney+), and The Little Mermaid (now playing in theaters). And don’t forget that if you’re heading to the theater, Disney® Visa® Credit Cardmembers can redeem Disney Rewards Dollars toward Disney and Pixar movie tickets at AMCTheatres.com or on the AMC Theatres Mobile App.1

Peter Pan & Wendy Treasure Map “Pizza”

You’ll turn eating into an adventure with this Peter Pan & Wendy-inspired baked focaccia treasure map. Follow the black olive trail past pepperoni mountains and mushroom Skull Rock until you find the red pepper X that marks the spot. The route is filled with both fun and flavor, thanks to lots of healthy herbs and savory sausage. Best of all, you can create an entirely new journey every time you make it!

The Little Mermaid Clamshell Cookies

These sweet treats inspired by The Little Mermaid are easy to prepare—no dinglehopper (fork) or baking required! Madeleine “shells” open to reveal colorful frosting and a gleaming, sugary “pearl.” They’re so good they might leave you speechless, but not in an Ursula kind of way!

Elemental Fire and Ice Smoothie

Opposites react in this colorful layered smoothie, which is packed with berries and creamy yogurt. The two halves nod to the main characters of Elemental: red for brightly blazing Ember, and blue for go-with-the-flow Wade. Each half is delicious on its own, but just like Ember and Wade learn in the movie, they’re best when they go together. Don’t miss Disney and Pixar’s Elemental, only in theaters June 16.
