Pete’s Dragon is in theaters right now and everyone is saying how great it is! From critics to my fellow bloggers I have heard nothing, but good things about this one and I can’t wait to see this one in theaters! Want to see what other bloggers have said? Check out the following reviews:
Ingredients needed for your very own Dragon Chow:
-12.5 oz box of Honey Nut Chex
-10 oz bag of peanut butter chips
-4 Tbs butter
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-2 cups powdered sugar
-3 Tbs(or more!) of green sugar sprinkles
Put one cup of powdered sugar in a 1 gallon bag, then put the other cup of powdered sugar into another gallon bag. I do this to make coating the Dragon Chow easier. This method helps me make sure I have minimal clumps and even coating. You could totally be a rebel and do it all in one bag. Or better yet, if you have a 2 gallon bag…that would give you the room to shake it and feel like you are wrestling a dragon! Let’s move on, we’ll get back to these bags in a bit.
In a large pot, start melting the butter on low heat. When it’s mostly melted, add in the peanut butter chips. Stir constantly to prevent burning or seizing. When all the chips are melted, stir in the vanilla. Remove the pot from the heat and pour in the box of Honey Nut Chex. Stir everything until well coated.
Now it’s time to add your green sugar sprinkles! My kids had fun helping with this! You can add more or less, it’s all up to you. Mix everything around a little more to make sure the sprinkles are everywhere. My sprinkles also happened to end up on the counter.
Back to the bags of powdered sugar. Put half of the cereal mixture in one bag and the other half in the other. (Or if you were a rebel, put it all in one bag!) Seal the bags up and shake them all around! This would be another great time to get some small hands to help. When you feel you have it mixed well, put it in the fridge to set.
I couldn’t wait to dig mine back out of the fridge and start sampling! The kids had fun pretending they were feeding it to their dragons. I should have offered to be a dragon! If you happen to have any leftovers, they store well in the fridge for about a week. My dragons never let it get more than a couple days old. Hope you enjoy!
For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of
Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon. Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters on August 12, 2016.
