We don’t get to the movie theater as often as we’d like having a toddler. This means it’s pretty exciting when a new movie comes out on DVD and Blu-ray that we’ve been dying to see. This week I’m surprising the kids with a movie night to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
You can pick up this awesome gift set only at Walmart which includes a DVD, Blu-ray, and a digital copy along with this fun 2-pack set of Funko Pocket Pop! Keychains starting on September 18th! These cute little keychains feature two of the main characters: Owen and his beloved raptor, Blue.
My kids are already fighting over who gets which keychain. I’m hoping they forget about them because I totally want Blue for myself. The gift sets are ONLY available at Walmart and ONLY $24.96 when they launch. You can pre-order yours here.
For our movie-watching parties, I always make a fun treat that goes along with the theme. I’m betting you can guess this one’s theme? Yep, dinosaurs! I decided to make a Dinosaur Footprints Cookie Pizza.
I like to make my cookie pizzas in a spring form pizza pan. It’s larger at 12 inches in diameter compared to the normal cheesecake spring form pan. It makes it easier to remove the cookie pizza.
I usually take the lazy way and use store bought cookie dough on a weeknight treat like this, because it saves a lot of time. For this one, I decided to mix it up a little. I had both peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie refrigerated dough, so I used both.
I thought it would be fun to have dino footprints going over chocolate chips and peanut butter candies. It’s a bit like when you see dinosaur footprints in the wild and they are set in stone with rocks.
For this cookie pizza, I set the cookie dough out to warm up a little, so it would be easy to break up. I tried to put it around as randomly as possible to mix both flavors of cookie dough together. Then, I smushed it all together.
Then, I baked it according to the temperature listed on the package. With a cookie pizza, it takes about 25-30 for it to be cooked all the way through.
As soon as I pulled it out of the oven, I pushed the dinosaur feet into the cookie while it was still very soft. Our favorite fire-breathing dragon is playing the part of the dinosaur today because she has some awesomely huge dino feet. Then, I popped it in the fridge to cool down before decorating.
The decorating is the best part because you can add all kinds of edible decorations. There’s so many things you can add from chocolate rocks to caramels. Let your imagine go wild!Print
