Parties and holidays give us a great excuse to get creative with decorations and food.  But you don’t always need a special occasion to create fun and festive recipes! If you have simple ingredients on hand like M&M’s™ candies, you can turn a simple movie night into a fun-filled occasion with movie themed snacks.  Last week I used M&M’s to turn some plain ole’ sugar cookies in to some M&M’s Sugar Cookies inspired by Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier (out now on DVD and Blu-Ray).

MMs at Walmart

At our local Walmart there is an entire shelf, filled from top to bottom with M&M’s products!  Which ones doe you like?  The original and the minis are my favorites, but you could use any variety in today’s recipe.

Walmart also has a $5 off coupon for any two M&M’s products (15.4 oz or larger) and Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier DVD.  (Movie, snacks, and a deal…it’s a win-win all the way around!)

MM Candies

I picked out a bunch of red and blue M&M’s from the bag to that patriotic, Captain America theme, and I made some really cute single M&M’s Sugar Cookies:

And then I also made some M&M’s Sugar Cookie Sandwiches:

The great thing about both of these is they are oh-so-quick and easy to make, but in the end you end up with some really cute and delicious cookies.  I, personally, am not the best cake and cookie decorator by any stretch of the imagination, so using things like M&M’s is a huge help!  And it definitely gives your kids a snack to get excited about, more so than just a “plain ole’ sugar cookie.”


And if you are feeling extra creative, you can arrange your M&M’s into a Captain America-esque shield design!
