I know that Mike Wazowski and Sulley aren't supposed to be lovable, but they just can't help it. Last time we visited Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park, my son was about two years old. He refused to take pictures with any of the Disney characters. They made him nervous. He was terrified of Minnie Mouse! How can you be scared of Minnie? She is the sweetest.
We happened to be by the Monsters Inc. ride in California Adventure when Sulley came out for a meet and greet. I thought that my little boy would cling to me out of fear, but I was wrong. He loved Sulley. He wanted to hug him and touch him and stand right next to him in the picture. It was so funny. Sulley really is like a giant kitty. Their interaction was one of my favorite memories from our entire trip. Monstropolis didn't get any added scream power from my little boy that day.
You can make your own Mike and Sulley inspired sweet treat with this Monsters Inc. Ice Cream Cones tutorial. Let your little monsters help in the kitchen. They will love it.
Start by making chocolate monster eyes. I am a big fan of food being cute AND tasting good. There is no sense in working hard on a project and then letting it go to waste because it isn't yummy! Store bought candy eyes are not usually very good. So, I decided to find a way to make them better. I succeeded! Chocolate monster eyes are delicious.
Place the large white melting chips onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper. They don't need a lot of extra space but do need a little bit of breathing room around each chip for melting purposes.
Set one chocolate chip in the center of each of the white melting chips. If they aren't centered, the monsters will just have silly eyes. That is ok too!
Place them in the preheated oven. Let the two chocolates melt together for about 5 minutes. The chips will get a little bit gooey. Don't overcook the chocolate. If you leave them in the oven for too long the white chocolate will get brown and start to dry out.
When the eyes are nice and melty soft, take the pan out of the oven and put it into the refrigerator. I just put mine on our deck because it is freezing outside right now! It will take about 10 minutes for the chocolate to reset to room temperatures. Once it is cool, the chocolate monster eyes will easily pop off of the parchment paper.
I found some fun bright ice cream at the grocery store. There were several options to choose from in the monster colors. I wanted to represent Mike and Sulley from the Monsters Inc. movie, so green and blue were on the list. I was so excited when I found Cotton Candy flavor. It was blue with a purplish swirl - just like Sulley! Score.
Scoop the ice cream into a cone.
Add one, two or ten chocolate monster eyes to the ice cream. It will instantly become Eye Scream!
