Y’all ready to laugh? Pull up your snack bowls full of my Ant-Man and the Wasp Snack mix because this movie will give you the giggles! Even Red was laughing through the entire movie. I created this Snack Mix after screening the film with him to give us something to munch while we watch the movie as a family… and wait for it to be released on streaming and DVD! Grab the recipe below and watch my VIDEO if you need a little help creating the Ant-Man and the Wasp Snack Mix. It’s STINGING with flavor!
Ant-Man and the Wasp Snack Mix Recipe
Scarlett went grocery shopping with me as my brain buzzed with activity over this mix. I knew I had to incorporate one of my favorite cereals, Honeycomb, into the recipe, but what REALLY said “ANTS” to me? Raisins? you betcha. Don’t tell me your Mom never made “Ants on a Log” for you with PB and raisins! Into the cart they went. How about cocoa puffs for a little chocolate zing? And you can’t do without the Ant Bug sprinkles from Wilton. Grab them on Amazon for a cheap price and enough to make the mix a few times!
After shopping, I went to work. Using a technique similar to my Valentine’s Day Buddy Muddies, I combined my ingredients on a parchment paper-lined tray and drizzled white chocolate all over. It gave the ant colored chocolate bits some contrast while adding the gentle zing of white chocolate to the mix.
My favorite aspect of creating this mix? I kept laughing at all the jokes I had seen in the film this week. Seriously. From punny humor to slapstick comedy, it took physical comedy to the next level with classic Marvel banter. Check out the fun I had with size and scale at the end of the video!

Ant-Man and the Wasp Movie Review
Now about the film itself. Remember when I mentioned it had a lot of humor? It wasn’t the crass humor you’d find in Guardians of the Galaxy, but a cleaner, goofier banter you might hear from Captain America. Add in the physical comedy you get when playing with scale and Paul Rudd delivers the perfectly sized hero. There were quite a few “damns” and a “my asssssss” that got covered by a car screech, but no other language you’d be concerned about. One big kissing scene made my seven-year-old go, “ewwww” and squirm, but for the most part, he was laughing and whooping his heroes along.

There is one. Watch it. On second thought, watch Infinity War first… and then watch it. Just so you’ll get all the nuances. No spoilers! 🙂
