Dino-Mite Party - Brown & Green Party Food.

We kept this party simple by serving a lot of sweets that were already made. It's easy to add a personal touch to food, automatically taking it to the next level. For example, brownie bites and Kellogg's Rice Krispie treats were picked up at our local grocery store, but we dusted the brownie bites with powdered sugar and drizzled lime green and dark green chocolate on the rice krispie treats.

Since it's right after Easter, Cadbury Creme Eggs and Cadbury Caramel Eggs, were a natural choice to serve as dinosaur eggs. 

Lime green jello served in glass jars with wooden spoons that we purchased from Etsy seller, The Party Garden, looked like green slime and was a huge hit with the kids. To add more green to our table, with a bit more nutritional value than pure sugar, we served up sliced Granny Smith apples in glass jars.

Using our favorite sugar cookie recipe, we made dinosaur footprints in the cookie and dusted them with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar before baking them. The end result were cute and tasty fossil footprint cookies.

We ordered green gumballs and shimmery lime green chocolate balls off of Oriental Trading Company. They have a fabulous selection of colored candy to go along with any event you might be hosting. We needed one more candy to round out our choices, and we went with mint M&M's that we purchased from our local grocery store.


  1. What sugar recipe did you use that did not fluff up so much as to get rid of your imprint?

  2. Hi Lisa :) I used the sugar cookie recipe which is posted on our blog.
