During the holidays we love watching Christmas movies. Old movies, new movies, and of course our tried and true favorites. A Muppets Christmas Carol is one that we watch every year, multiple times. And since this year we find ourselves staying home more, we decided to add some fun Disney Christmas Recipes to the lineup. Everything you need for that Muppets Christmas Carol Movie Night!
A Muppets Christmas Carol Movie Night
While we could take any Christmas Movie on Disney Plus and make a movie day out of it, we just couldn’t resist honoring the muppets! Complete with treats and activity, we loved creating this Muppets Christmas Carol movie day and we hope it inspires you to have some fun creating memories at home this year!
Probably one of the most popular Muppets Christmas Movies is The Muppet Christmas Carol. Michael Caine stars as Ebenezer Scrooge in this musical re-telling of Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol. With ghosts following Scrooge through the past, present, and future to teach important life lessons, we love the extra humor we get from Miss Piggy as Mrs. Cratchit and Gonzo as Charles Dickens himself. This is a classic holiday film we watch every year, and have even made a Muppets Christmas shirt to match for your next Muppets Christmas Movie Night or watch party.
Muppets Christmas Carol Movie Night Treats
Nothing says Muppet’s Christmas Carol, like good old-fashioned English Christmas, courtesy of Charles Dickens, or in this case, Gonzo. Not as scary as it looks, this sticky toffee pudding is like a British Christmas pudding, and well worth a try. Add a special tea, perfect for the holiday, and you have a cozy Christmas Movie night of your very own.
The Muppets Christmas Carol Sticky Toffee Pudding
We wanted to create a British theme around the treats for The Muppets Christmas Carol movie night, so we leaned on the queen of British baking, Mary Berry. Her cookbook, Baking With Mary Berry, provided us with the recipe for sticky toffee pudding, which was so delicious and very easy to make. It may not have been what they were eating in London in the early 1800s, but we thought it was the perfect match to this movie, because just like A Christmas Carol, it makes you feel warm and fuzzy. And of course, we used our Mickey ramekins to add a touch of Disney magic.
Muppets Christmas Carol Earl Grey Creme Tea
Keeping with the English theme we added a classic Earl Grey Creme tea, British style. To make this tea all you need is cream and brown sugar. Add ingredients to your preferred taste, and voila, a traditional English tea. There are of course other teas that would also do as well. An English breakfast tea, mixed with milk and honey works well. Or you can grab Twining’s Winter Spice or Harney and Sons Christmas Tea, all set the mood for an extra cozy movie night.
We hope you love adding the Muppets Christmas Carol Movie Night to your holiday plans as much as we do. With wonderful music, a timeless lesson, and memorable characters, this film is perfect to help ring in the season. If you don’t have Disney Plus, you can grab the Muppet’s Christmas Carol on Amazon. Happy Holidays!
