This sweet treat is perfect for movie night! 2geekswhoeat.comMan, this summer is just loaded with movies we are dying to see! On the top of that list is Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin. We are both fans of the animated film, as are most people our age. So when we saw they were making a live-action version we were intrigued. It also gave us an idea for a recipe, Agrabah Baklava Bites!

“A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, Aladdin is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, Aladdin is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.” The film stars Will Smith as the Genie; Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia and Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders.”

Aladdin | Disney Food | Disney Recipes | Disney Snacks | Inspired by the live action remake of Aladdin, The Geeks have created a recipe for Agrabah Baklava Bites. This sweet treat is perfect for movie night! 2geekswhoeat.comOur Agrabah Baklava Bites took inspiration from the song, A Friend Like Me, in which the food is mentioned. However, baklava is a fair amount of work so we wanted to make a more approachable recipe with similar flavors. We also used pistachios and orange fig spread for filling since figs and pistachios are mentioned in the original movie. The result is a easy and delectible dessert perfect for movie night!

Now that you have a delicious dessert recipe, here is your opportunity to see the movie that inspired it! We are giving away 5 Family 4-Packs of VIP Advanced Screening Passes to an advanced showing of Aladdin! The showing will be held at Harkins Arizona Mills IMAX on Tuesday, May 21st.
