I have a really close relationship with my sisters, especially with my baby sister, Jules. I take her out all the time and one of our favorite things to do together is go to the movies. Our favorite movie so far this year has been Disney’s FROZEN. We both love that FROZEN celebrates the special love and bond between sister’s. At her insistence, I’ve taken her to see FROZEN four times, and she still can’t get enough of it! I really love how she identifies with both Anna and Elsa, and she has been begging, to have the movie on DVD so she can watch it as often as she likes. Luckily for her, the FROZEN DVD will hit Walmart shelves on March 18th, right before her birthday, at a special reduced price of $14.96 – down from $16.96!
I recently swung by Walmart to pick up a few essentials for the FROZEN themed mini-bash I plan on throwing Jules for her birthday. I definitely plan on stopping by on the 18th to pick up the FROZEN DVD – which by the way, you can score a $5 off offer with the purchase of specially marked 24 count Eggo waffles – but I wanted to pick up part of Jules’ FROZEN birthday present as well as some Eggos to make a special FROZEN inspired treat!
Lucky for me, I snagged the last plush Olaf! Olaf is Jules’ favorite – I can’t tell you how many times I’ve overheard her singing “In Summer” to herself! I must admit, I too know the lyrics by heart, to this song and every other one in FROZEN. I also picked up plenty of Eggos!
I’ve been eating Eggos my whole life and so has Jules, they’re her favorites so I decided to pull together a fun, healthy, FROZEN Eggo snack – I call them Elsa’s Eggos!
I’ve watched enough cooking shows to know that presentation is everything and I really wanted for Jules to see her favorite movie in this treat, so I used Sugar Free Cool Whip with two drops of blue food coloring to get that snowy effect. When you mix up the Cool Whip with the food dye you don’t want to overmix – just a few folds and your good to go! If you don’t want to use food dye, you can also mix in jam or jelly (1 tablespoon for every two cups of Cool Whip). You don’t need any fancy tools, just a plastic baggie. Snip of the end and pipe around your stack of Eggos.
I also added blueberries between each layer and made a little blueberry mountain on top – a healthy nod toward Elsa’s ice castle, and sprinkled coconut flakes for more of a FROZEN snow effect. I love it – the blueberries and coconut give a really tropical taste, and there’s nothing like having the bursting flavor of blueberry enveloped within warm homestyle Eggos!
For extra fun you can pre-fill the bags and let your kids or party guests pipe their own FROZEN Eggo designs! I got a little carried away and made my Eggo interpretation of Olaf using light yogurt, fruit, sugar free cool whip, and coconut flakes.
I can’t wait to gift Jules the FROZEN DVD, Olaf plush (so she can give him plenty of warm hugs!), and treat her to some delicious Elsa’s Eggos – I’m certain it’ll be one of her most favorite birthdays yet! Don’t forget to pick up your FROZEN DVD at Walmart on March 18th, and pick up a box of specially marked Eggos (24 count) for additional savings!
