Last week I was picking up a new Walmart Family Mobile phone and I got a sample of Swedish Fish. When I got up to the check-out I saw a big display of large bags of Swedish Fish. I picked up a few because I thought it would be fun to have a fish-themed family movie night. We decided to start with an early viewing party so we could get in all of the movies on our list and enjoy all the fun food.

Since this was serving as dinner as well as snacking, I made sure to have a balance of foods. I used a fish cookie cutter to make fish-shaped bread for Tuna Fish sandwiches. Vegetables were dipped into Seaweed Dip, which was spinach artichoke dip. The fruit platter had grapes, Dolphin bananas, and Starfish made with watermelon and pineapple cut with star-shaped cookie cutters. Sushi was made with fig cookies, Swedish Fish, and strips of fruit leather. We drank a blue Ocean Punch that had Swedish Fish in it. While we watched our second feature we enjoyed a Fish Food sweet & sour snack mix, and then we enjoyed Fish Cakes (cupcakes) during the final movie.Sweet and Sour Snack Mix made with Swedish Fish and Sour Patch Kids Recipe Mix

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir in the salt.

Pour the butter over the cereal mix.

Spread the snack mix out over two cookie sheets and bake in a 250-degree oven for an hour, stirring and rotating shelves every 15 minutes.
