Here’s a super simple recipe for KA-CHOW! Cars 3 Party Popcorn that you can make for the family just in time for your CARS 3 viewing party! The movie is available here (affiliate) CARS 3 digital download October 24 and CARS 3 Blu-ray starting November 7. I visited Cars Land for Haul-O-Ween as part of the Thor: Ragnarok Event hosted by Disney, which inspired this tasty treat.
We’ve been CARS fans since the first one came out in 2006 and my young kiddos raced around like Lightning McQueen.
And I DO mean race. Dang, those little dudes were fast!
That feels like a lifetime ago to this momma.
Three movies later and it’s clear that Lightning and Mater are here to stay in our home. Which is just fine by me!
We’re inviting the crew from Radiator Springs in once again with the digital (October 24) and Blu-ray release of the third installment.
Snacks are definitely needed!
Here’s a super simple option for moms like me who want to score a win, but can’t quite reach 210 miles per hour in the kitchen.
Trust me, your kids will love it and put you in the winner’s circle!
KA-CHOW! CARS 3 Party Popcorn
Cars 3 Party Popcorn Ingredients
- 6 cups microwave popcorn
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 cups mini marshmallows
- red (Lightning McQueen) and yellow (Cruz Ramirez) sprinkles
Cars 3 Party Popcorn Instructions
Pop the popcorn and lay out on parchment paper or greased pan. Be careful to leave any unpopped kernels out.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and add in the mini marshmallows.
Stir the mixture until it’s completely melted.
Pour the melted marshmallow over the popcorn and mix the popcorn and marshmallow mixture until it’s covered.
Be sure to add sprinkles: red for Lightning McQueen, yellow for Cruz Ramirez!
Allow to cool.
Store in an airtight container.
If there’s any left over, that is!
Because I have a feeling your kids will be racing for more while watching CARS 3 on Blu-ray.
