My family has been eagerly awaiting the home release of the new Wreck it Ralph adventure, since we saw the first trailer! So when it was finally time to have a Ralph Breaks the Internet movie day, we were excited to celebrate with a Sugar Rush inspired spread to celebrate!
Ralph Breaks the Internet is already available on Digital and Movies Anywhere, and will be available to bring home on Blu-Ray February 26th!
We decided to whip up some Wreck it Ralph/Sugar Rush recipes, with a little bit of inspiration from our family’s favorite clip! You may have guessed our favorite clip already, which is the Pancake Milkshake game clip! We couldn’t make ordinary pancakes and milkshakes for Ralph and Vanellope, because they simply aren’t ordinary characters!
After we got into our Ralph Breaks the Internet Chef hat and apron, it was time to set up for a family fun day of sweet treats, and hands on baking and cooking, with the movie as our finale. We always like to get all of our kitchen tools set up before we start, and decided to put up pics of Ralph and Vanellope for inspiration.
We chose to make Torvald Batterbutter Extra Fluffy Pancakes, Snowanna Rainbeau Crazy Shakes, and Sugar Rush Cookies.
For the milkshakes we decided we wanted to make our own ice cream, in fun colors inspired by the world of Sugar Rush! We decided on blue and pink, so that we could layer the shakes, and get a little purple mixed in too! We started our ice cream first, but let it set while we made all of our other treats. Then we constructed out milkshakes after everything else was finished.
Torvald Batterbutter Extra Fluffy Pancakes
We wanted to make extra special pancakes for our Sugar Rush inspired treats! I’ve always loved the idea of the big fluffy pancakes served in Japan, and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try them out! These pancakes come out thick, and jiggly and were truly a treat!
You will need:
- Mixing Bowl
- Mixer or Whisk
- Measuring Utensils
- Ring Molds or Deep Cookie Cutters
- Pan with Lid (that will fit the ring molds!)
- 2 egg yolks
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 cup complete pancake mix
- 4 egg whites
Mix the egg yolks, sugar, milk, and complete pancake mix together, until you have a smooth batter. Set that aside, and mix the egg whites with a mixer until you get stiff peaks, to make a meringue mixture. Gently gold the egg whites into the mixture, but be sure not to over mix and deflate the batter. Once you’re ready spray your pan with a non stick spray, and heat to a medium temperature. Place the ring mold in the pan, and fill half way with the batter. Allow to cook for 10 minutes, the mixture should rise up. Flip, and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from the pan, and ring mold, repeat! If you can fit more than one mold comfortable in your pan, feel free to make more than one at a time! We used tulip shapes molds for a whimsical shape!
Once your pancakes are ready top them with syrup, icing, fruit, anything your heart desires! We used purple icing that matched our milkshake, fresh whipped cream, and butter.
For the sugar cookies we used a basic recipe we love from Alton Brown.
These are easy to make, and come out delicious! We mostly wanted these to decorate our milkshakes with!
Snowanna Rainbeau Crazy Shakes
These milkshakes took a few steps, because we made everything from scratch. Here’s what we’ll be making, ice cream, icing, and whipped cream. We also got sprinkles, and candies to add on for decoration!
Homemade ice cream –
You will need:
- Large zip top plastic bags
- Measuring Cups
- Medium zip top plastic bags
- 10 Cups of ice
- Rock Salt preferred, but any large cut salt will do.
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- Food coloring – as desired
To make the ice cream base Stir the milk, sugar and vanilla together in a medium bowl. You can separate the mixture into 2 different medium bags, and add your chosen colors. Zip them up tight! Now place ice, and salt to the larger bag, and place the medium bag inside. Now comes the fun part…
SHAKE THAT BAG!
We went outside to shake ours to avoid any messes. You’ll want to shake the bag for a good 5 minutes, if it’s too cold for your hands wrap it up in a towel while you shake.
Place the bags in the freezer once you have the desired consistency, and it’s time to make more magic!
You will need:
- A Chilled bowl
- Hand, or Stand Mixer, or Whisk
- Measuring Cup and Spoons
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- Food Coloring
Place your powdered sugar into the chilled bowl. Then mix milk, 1 tablespoon at a time until it has the desired consistency. Mix in your desired food coloring! The icing will thicken as it sets.
Set aside your icing, and get ready to make that whipped cream!
Fresh Made Whipped Cream:
- Chilled Bowl
- Chilled Whisk or Chilled Mixer Attachments
- Measuring Utensils
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons sugar
Whipped cream from scratch is surprisingly easy! You’ll want to make sure your bowl and utensils are chilled in the freezer for at least 15 minutes. First place your sugar into the mixing bowl and pour in the whipping cream. Whisk or mix until you get soft fluffy peaks!
We rimmed mason jars in our icing and colorful sprinkles, and placed them in the freezer while we made the pancakes and cookies.
After the icing on our glasses were set, we began to construct our milkshakes! We added our pink ice cream first, then a layer or white, followed by a layer of blue to get a fun pastel rainbow look. After that we topped with PLENTY of whipped cream and added in our decorations. We opted for a Giant lollipop, a heart shaped sugar cookie, a chocolate heart, an extra large gummy lifesaver, and sprinkles. You can really choose any fun candies or sweets for this, it’s all about having fun and being creative!
Here was our best looking shake:
We used some gold glitter reusable straws for a little bit of pixie dust!
The inspiration for the hearts came from this Vanellope emoji picture! Isn’t she just the cutest little racer ever?
Once we were done it was time to enjoy! We even played a couple rounds of Pancake Milkshake before the movie for a few giggles.
We really had a lot of fun putting together our Sugar Rush Inspired movie day, and we hope you enjoyed following along with it too! If you make any of the fun recipes we used, be sure to show us what you made!
Will you be baking up a fun Sugar Rush inspired movie day for the release of Ralph Breaks the Internet on DVD and Blu-ray February 26th?
