Marvel Avengers Movie Night, Meijer sponsored #giveaway

Avengers-Age-of-Ultron-Official-Movie-Poster-2015

Avengers: Age of Ultron will be assembling in theaters on May 1st.

When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) jumpstarts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go terribly awry, forcing him, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the rest of the Avengers to reassemble. As the fate of Earth hangs in the balance, the team is put to the ultimate test as they battle Ultron (James Spader), a technological terror hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they encounter two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff.

Being big fan’s of pretty much all things Marvel, my family could not be more excited. We recently went on a Marvel movie watching spree, and completed it with a fun Avengers viewing party that included plenty of Avenger items and Avenger themed recipes. All courtesy of Meijer!

Even LuLu loves the Avengers! I think she’s pretty partial to the Hulk.

Before watching the movie together, we played card games, enjoyed huge hero sandwiches, and the below Avengers themed recipes.

Crispix Avenger Snack Mix
5 cups Crispix
3 cups Sunshine Cheez-it Orginal (Avengers themed)
2 cups pretzels
3 tablespoons butter
6 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder

In 13×9 inch backing pan combine Crispix cereal and Cheeze-it crackers. Set aside.
Stir together remaining ingredients. Drizzle over cereal mixture. Stir
Bake at 250 for 45 minutes, stiring every 15 minutes.

Dirt Cake
1 Package 5.9 oz chocolate instant pudding and pie filling (prepared).
2 cups chocolate wafer cookies crushed.
2/3 cup NESTLE NESQUIK chocolate flavor syrup.
1 container (8oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed.
1 package (3oz) gummy worms.

Combine cookie crumbs and NESQUIK in medium bowl; reserve 1/4 cup.
Layer half of remaining crumb mixture, half of pudding and half of whipped topping in large bowl.
Repeat layers. Sprinkle with reserve crumb mixture, top with gummy worms.

I made mine in glass parfait cups, and Marvel Avenger cups (bought at Meijer for under $1 each). Everyone LOVED them!

Like most Marvel movies the Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron are rated PG-13. Enjoyed by kids, teenagers and adults. Making them great for a family like ours.
