When I heard that Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved book, The Little Prince was being made into a movie, I was delighted. As a child, I adored the book and its whimsical illustrations. And who else remembers the mid-’80s TV series, The Adventures Of The Little Prince? Clearly nostalgic of my childhood, I can’t wait to catch an early preview of the animated film with my sweet boy. In anticipation of that day, we have some healthy and super simple star-shaped party food recipes to celebrate.
These quick and easy peasy recipes add a special touch to one-on-one time with kiddos, and they are perfect for a Little Prince inspired party. My little guy gobbled up his Little Prince pineapple fruit pops, and his peanut butter and banana waffle sandwich in lightning speed. Who doesn’t love their food presented in star form?
Grab the super simple instructions below – along with an exciting giveaway from our partner Fandango!
- mini star cookie cutter and large star cookie cutter
- cake pop sticks
- 2 whole grain waffles
- 2 T peanut butter
- ½ banana
- Cut the peel off of pineapple.
- Instead of cutting horizontal and making rounds, cut pineapple vertically from top to bottom. Slice vertically to create ½ inch thick rectangles. (Cut off any extra pineapple to make it a completely flat and even). Cut around the pineapple-leaving the core intact. Discard core.
- Using a small star cookie cutter, cut out stars and insert a cake pop stick in the bottom.
- Lightly toast or thaw waffles.
- Spread one side of two waffles with one tablespoon of peanut butter.
- Thinly slice banana and place on one side of one waffle.
- Place the other waffle on top and press down.
- Using a large star cookie cutter, press down on the middle of the sandwich to create a star.
