As much as we’ve tried to “Let it go… let it goooooooo!” the popularity of this 2013 Disney flick just hasn’t seemed to dwindle much, and with the script for a Frozen sequel reportedly underway, don’t expect to see Anna and Elsa stepping aside anytime soon. So if you have young ones in your house and you haven’t already heard requests for a Frozen themed party, you’re very likely to in the near future! If you want to get creative and bring all your child’s Frozen fantasies to life, here are a few food and drink ideas to help transport you to Arendelle:
If there’s one thing to be sure of when hosting a Frozen birthday party, it’s the fact that there will inevitably be large amounts of sugar consumed from all the ‘pretty’, ‘sparkly’ food items you’ll be whipping up. Take these Frozen frost bites for example, they’re a sugary marshmallow dipped in more sugar in the form of melted colored chocolate and then rolled in sparkly blue sugar for that final Frozen touch. It’s literally the sugar trifecta.

You’re going to need to offer some beverages for the kiddos (and adults) to wash down all those frosty blue treats you’re serving, and while you could just put out a pitcher of water and call it a melted snowman (it’s been done) we think you can do a little better. Making Frozen punch can be as simple as filling a punch bowl or beverage dispenser with some blue colored juice or take your favorite clear fizzy soda and add a few drops of blue food color. If you want to go above and beyond, make some snowflake-shaped ice cubes and toss them in for a special touch.

Not everything at your Frozen party has to be made from scratch and require hours slaving in the kitchen. Take advantage of this easy Frozen party snack by turning regular old Jello into some shimmering ice cubes that will bring your party table to life. You can even be a little sneaky and tell all the kids that they’re special pieces of Kristoff’s ice blocks!

Continuing on in the short-cut snacks category, we have these fun little Olaf cheese sticks! I haven’t met many kids (or adults for that matter) who don’t like cheese sticks, especially when it’s stringable cheese we’re talking about. It will take you a little time to draw on the little Olaf faces but at least you’ll get to practice your artistic skills!

What’s a Frozen themed party without some snowballs?? These sweet treats are not only delicious but they’re also pretty fun to look at with all their blue and white candy bits and sprinkles. Best of all, these treats are made in the same way as a rice krispie treat, so you can make them a day or two ahead, leaving you time to work on all the other important party details.

What’s one of the best ways to dress up your Frozen themed party table? Blue and white candy of course! Let’s face it, there aren’t many ‘natural’ blue foods out there so if you want a color coordinated table display you’re going to have to embrace the sweet stuff. Take various shades of your favorite blue and white candies and place them in cute jars and glass dishes for a display that’ll have all the kids going wild (literally).

Snowflakes are a pretty solid decorating theme for your Frozen party but they also make a pretty fancy treat as well! These snowflake cookies look amazing and they’re as easy or complicated as you want them to be. For an easy shortcut, use pre-rolled cookie dough and cut out snowflakes with a cookie cutter. If you don’t want to pipe all those decorations yourself, just ice with a solid color and then dip in sparkly sugar to accent.

It looks like things got a little too warm in here for poor Olaf, don’t worry though, it just means another sweet treat for you! There are two ways to make these melted Olaf cups; the healthy way, and the indulgent way! For the healthy option, you can fill your cups with vanilla Greek yogurt and top with pretzels, a piece of dried apricot for a nose and some mini chocolate chips. For the indulgent version, do the same but fill your cups with sweet vanilla ice cream.

This is one awesome Frozen themed snack idea because not only does it taste great, but it’s also a fun activity that will entertain all your little party guests! Give your guests the chance to build their very own Olaf; either assemble pre-packaged bags with all the necessary pieces already portioned out, or create an Olaf building station equipped with marshmallows, pretzel sticks, mini chocolate chips and whatever other bits and bobs you need to bring this little snowman to life.

What’s that? You don’t want to spend three days in the kitchen creating the mother of all Frozen cakes for your party? Shame on you. Just kidding, sometimes it’s best to know your own limitations so if you don’t want to go the cake order route, try whipping up some fun Frozen cupcakes of your own! Cupcakes are a heck of a lot easier for home cooks than a full size cake and you can get super creative with the decorations. You can never go wrong with blue icing and snowflake accents!
