I am so excited for the Incredibles 2 to be in theaters on June 15th. I feel like it’s been such a long time coming for their sequel. We have to know more about Helen, Bob, Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack. At the very least, we need to know more about Jack-Jack’s super powers, as we only saw a hint of them at the end of The Incredibles. I know that a big part of it is nostalgia, but I love it when my girls want to watch a video from years ago with me, and what better way to celebrate then by making these Jack-Jack Cookies from The Incredibles 2.
We all have a sweet tooth, and cookies are totally my jam! The best part for me is that these are incredibly (see what I did there) easy to make gluten and dairy free as I can pick up a box of gluten free white cake mix! Then, the whole family can enjoy them together!
To make Jack-Jack Cookies:
To the cake mix, you are only adding oil and eggs.
Viola, the cookie dough is made.
Then you separate the dough into three bowls and using red, orange and yellow gel food coloring, apply the colors to each bowl. From each of the colors, take about 1 teaspoon of each color of dough and form into tablespoon sized balls. Then, they take a roll in sanding sugar, bake them and your cookies are ready!
This is a super incredible and easy to make cookie recipe that my girls can make on their own, or we can work together.
Or, maybe in honor of Helen going back to work, the next time, we’ll have Mr. Serious make the cookies with the girls!
About Incredibles 2:
In INCREDIBLES 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
And, I wouldn’t frown upon taking a couple Jack-Jack cookies in when you go to see The Incredibles 2 in theaters!
