Sleeping Beauty is such a classic Disney princess movie! It was the last animated feature produced by Walt Disney to be based upon a fairy tale (after his death, the studio returned to the genre with The Little Mermaid). One of my favorite parts of the movie is when the fairies fight over the color of Princess Aurora’s dress. Make it Pink! Make it Blue! Aurora looks great is both colors. I created this Princess Chex Mix to pay homage to Princess Aurora and my favorite scene. It would be a perfect addition to a Sleeping Beauty movie night or party, it would also work at a gender reveal party!
My copy of the movie came from the Disney Movie Club. Have you tried the Disney Movie Club out yet? It is a really great deal to join. The first few movies are really cheap. With my sign up deal I got 4 movies for 99¢ a piece, the 5th movie was just $8.95, and the 6th movie was just $14.95. The 6th movie also counted toward my purchase commitment. You have to buy 4 movies. Each month there is a featured movie, and the featured movie usually comes with something cool. For instance, when I got Inside Out and Aladdin I got free lithographs. I also got a free Olaf blanket for joining.
I have finished my purchase agreement now and will probably cancel in a few months and then rejoin in a year or two and do it over again. The whole deal roughly averaged out to $10 per Blu-ray which is much cheaper than Amazon, Target, or Walmart’s prices! Tip: Google a coupon code!
Aurora’s Princess Chex Mix
This recipe is super easy! Just simply melt the chocolate, pour over cereal, and mix. Lay the cereal out on a pan covered in foil. Simply add the glitter and candies and let it cool.
I found the colored Sixlets at Walmart for just 97¢ a package. You could also use pink and blue M&M’s.
- Line cookie sheet with foil or waxed paper. In large bowl, place cereal.

- Spread mixture in single layer on cookie sheet. Immediately sprinkle with edible glitter. Let stand until set, about 20 minutes. Gently break up mixture. Store in airtight container.
