How To Recreate Your Favourite Foods From Childhood Movies

Ever remember sitting in front of your favourite movie as a kid and wishing you could eat whatever they were having? Even if it was a cartoon? Here are 5 recipes for you to recreate those dishes so you can not just see them but eat them!


Tiana’s Beignets

Recreate this classic New Orleans dish from The Princess and the Frog topped with plenty of sugar to finish. Best served warm and fresh right out of the oven.


Alice’s Cookies

They even say “Eat me” on it, so how do you expect kids to watch this and not crave cookies instantly? These are relatively easy to make and can be personalized to bear whatever message you please.


Homer’s Donuts

Is it really a Simpsons episode without Homer chowing down on one of these pink frosted treats? Whilst you could pick up a 4-pack at the grocery store, you can’t beat the lightness of a homemade version finished with those signature sprinkles.


Gingy from Shrek

“NOT THE GUMDROP BUTTONS!” would be our usual response when watching the Shrek movie, but this time we’re all for it. Recreate everyone’s favourite gingerbread man at home and channel your inner Lord Farquaad as you break him to pieces.


Butterbeer from Harry Potter

You might not have a Three Broomsticks anywhere nearby, but you can still sip away at this frothy non-alcoholic beverage. This recipe is an imitation of the kind you can find at the Universal Studios parks and is reminiscent of butterscotch and shortbread.
