I remember vividly one Thursday night back in 2012 when Mike chose The Avengers as our date night movie. I begrudgingly agreed, secretly rolling my eyes at what I figured would be another boring super hero action flick. Hey, at least there is popcorn. However, two hours later I had fallen completely in love with Thor, Hulk and of course Iron Man. I kept thinking “Where have these guys been all my life!?” Mike could not believe that I had zero idea who any of these guys were, so we went straight to the store and bought every single one of their movies and spent that week watching them all. They are still our “go to” at home movies when we go for a quiet night at home. With the Blu-Ray/DVD release of MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron on Friday, I was super stoked to help spread the word.
Not unlike The Avengers, we were given a difficult task – should we choose to accept it. No, ours wasn’t something like to save the world from the technological terror Ultron, but to create a recipe using three seemingly unrelated MARVEL themed goodies available at your local Walmart. Individually, these snacks are great – just like The Avengers! But all together… well then things get a little more interesting – also, just like the Avengers! With Halloween around the corner I knew I could put something together that would do just the trick… and I did. Marvel Mummies.
Midge and I headed off to Walmart to pick up what we needed for the Marvel Mummies. You could see the Marvel Love from the minute you walked in the front door. Rows and rows of adorable costumes of all of your favorites – Hulk, Black Widow, Thor, Captain America, Ultron, Vision, Iron Man, and Hawk Eye. There was even a super cute Spiderman that made me wish I had a little boy in my life to dress up with for Halloween! It seemed like every section of the store was excited about the new Blu-Ray/DVD release!
- MARVEL Avengers or Spiderman string cheese
- MARVEL Avengers grapes
- MARVEL chewy granola bars
Making Marvel Mummies is super easy and kid friendly – which makes it perfect for any age super hero you have at home to help. All you need is three ingredients and a microwave! Start by unwrapping and laying out your MARVEL Chewy Granola Bars – smushing them together if needed to make sure they are firm. Next, get your MARVEL string cheese and pull apart – the “stringier” looking the better. Then, peel some of a MARVEL Avengers grape and place on the granola bar for a “head.” Finally, lay your string cheese over like the wraps of a mummy, and microwave for about 10-15 seconds – just long enough for the cheese to melt and “wrap” down the sides of your mummy. Let cool completely before moving to your serving tray.
MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out on Blu-Ray/DVD on Friday, October 2nd, and if you are like us, you will be there to pick up your copy first thing in the morning While you are there, you can pick up all the other great MARVEL goodies all around the store – including a great costume for your little Super Hero!! (Hey, who says you can only wear a costume on Halloween?) Whether MARVEL is a part of your Halloween celebration or if you are having a fun viewing party for the movie – these tasty little MARVEL Mummies are sure to be a crowd favorite.
