Wizard of Oz Party – Food!

In: Birthday Parties

So I mentioned earlier that this was definitely the most fun I’ve had with a party before. The food was no exception. It was definitely an easier meal than I’ve done in the past – maybe that was what made it so fun? I also opted out of doing a cake. When given the option, Chloe really wanted everyone to have their own Ruby Red Slipper Bookmarks anyway, so I was happy – ummm very happy – to oblige her. :) Here’s a few shots from the food table….

Chloe chose chocolate animal crackers. Who knew? :)

The recipe for these yummy little (rather healthy, actually!) whole wheat crust fruit pizzas is here.

Mini pumpkin donuts – these things were a huge hit…and I didn’t even add the extra sugar coating!

And this was the hit of the party. This recipe shall remain secret. My lands was it awesome!

Costco. $15. Yeah, I cheated.

These were a great make ahead dish that just had to be reheated – again, simplicity was a BIG factor this year. :)

And what’s a party without a good punch? This one was not as sweet as others…mostly whole fruit juices, which I liked, and it went over great! I love that cookbook btw. A lot.

And for the birthday girl – her Ruby Red Sipper Cupcakes – with blue/white gingham cupcake liners! They were Paula Dean’s Red Velvet recipe with cream cheese frosting.

But all that work (or lack of!) would have been completely pointless if the little girls didn’t enjoy it!

I love how many chocolate animal crackers they all seemed to load up with…
