My kids couldn't wait to see Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps in action! They had a blast turning their Toy Box into the gleaming landscapes of Zootropolis' Sahara Square. They enjoyed the constant costume changes and just running around working as a team.

Fandango Family: Clawhauser's Chewy Chomps!

Zootopia...a gleaming city!

Zootopia is a city inhabited by anthropomorphic animals where an uptight rabbit police officer is forced to work with a charismatic fox who's been framed for a serious crime in order to get to the bottom of an important case.



Officer Clawhauser is the radio dispatcher at the Zootopia Police Department. He is a very jovial cheetah that loves donuts and Lucky Chomps cereal. I thought it would be fun for my kids to enjoy a Zootopia inspired treat prior to seeing the film in theaters this weekend. With the adorable Officer Clawhauser in mind, I came up with Clawhauser's Chewy Chomps!


What you'll need: 

1 bag of marshmallows
1 box of Sprinkled Donut Crunch cereal
1 box of Lucky Charms cereal
Butter


Directions:

Melt 3 tablespoons butter on low heat and add bag of marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are completely melted.

Add 3 cups of Sprinkled Donut Crunch cereal and 3 cups of Lucky Charms cereal. Stir until cereal is well coated.

Spray pan with cooking spray and spread the chewy chomps evenly throughout pan. Cut into 2-inch squares and enjoy!

Zootopia hits theaters this Friday, March 4th!
