Our recipe for Showstopping Sprinkled Animal Crackers is a Paid Promotion for Walt Disney Studios’ Dumbo.
Everyone’s favorite pachyderm Dumbo is getting a home release next week! We loved the movie so much we couldn’t wait to create a new recipe! Our Showstopping Sprinkled Animal Crackers aren’t just adorable, they are tasty too!
In Dumbo, “Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.”
