Another easy Pixar inspired recipe is the Frozen Banana Joy Pops. Parents are always looking for fruit recipes that kids enjoy and want to eat. For this recipe, there will be joy around the table for both kids and parents.

This Sheriff Woody Star Ravioli is easy to make and quite tasty. While making homemade pasta might start out as intimidating, it is rather easy. More importantly, it can get families in the kitchen cooking together. That family time can make any dish tasty.
Based on the newest Pixar movie, Onward, these Wizard Staff Pretzels are perfect for a dessert or an anytime snack. While this recipe uses homemade pretzel dough, you could use a store bought variety. Or, you could cheat and use a certain crescent dough, too.
The fun part of this recipe is making the wand itself. The kids can let their personality come through in creating the wand shape. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect every time.
Lastly, the biggest Pixar inspired recipes is the Edna a la mode. This “party style” recipe is a lot of fun to make. It is definitely more stylish than eating another brownie.
