Huzzah!

    Sweet Heat Hot Dogs

    It's bad enough that Amy is in Borneo saving a tribe, but now Rocky is going away to circus camp. A summer without her two besties is like two math-ternities. Judy Moody can comfort herself with the best part of the circus, right in her own home: The food! These dogs are loaded with crunchy, delicious toppings. Maybe she can even convince Stink that the purple cabbage is a pile of worms.

    Red, White and Blue Ice Pops

    In honor of Judy Moody's American Flag Graham Crackers, we're celebrating red, white, and blue all summer long. Just don’t try to eat them while Aunt Opal is driving. That's sure to be one sticky flubber-upper ride.

    Mississippi Mud Pie

    Anyone can tell you that one of Judy Moody's favorite foods is Screamin' Mimi's Mud Pie. Unfortunately, it looks like Stink got to this mud pie before Judy could. And everyone knows the first slice is the best! Roar! Lucky for Judy, we've packed yummy goodness into every bite of this pie. And maybe next time she'll take a cue from her movie and sneak in a candy worm or two. That'll teach Stink.

    Colorful Critters

    Will Judy Moody capture Bigfoot and make her million thrill points? If not, she could always capture a cuter monster made from snack cakes. Her total thrill points for this capture may go down slightly, but that bad-i-tude will melt away when she takes her first yummy bite.

    Coconut Frushi

    Judy Moody loves to collect things, so we can only imagine that she's thrilled with the choice of Jordana Beatty as the actress who plays her onscreen. Jordana, an Australian native, collects tons of things, including Japanese erasers that look like food. We think both Jordana and Judy would love Coconut Frushi, and give us double points for the fun name. Fun Fact: Jordana used to collect hotel and restaurant mints but, oops, she ate them.

    Gold-Dusted White Chocolate Popcorn

    Aunt Opal wasn't too bad--she did find an elephant ride after all! It's no circus, but an elephant ride certainly qualifies for an over-the-top treat. Go ahead and put on your third grade listening ears, because we're not saying it twice: This popcorn is sprinkled with genuine-and-for-real edible gold dust.
  • Hot Pretzels

    Hot Pretzels

    Did you know you can make circus pretzels with only three ingredients? The ingredient list is so kindergarten, but the hot pretzels they make are rare! Thirty minutes and a little finger dexterity are all you need to enjoy these warm snacks. Pair with mustard or even pizza sauce for dipping.

    White Pizza with Tomato and Basil

    Did someone say pizza? Judy Moody's favorite food (along with Screamin' Mimi's Mud Pie and toast made by Mouse) is, specifically, the world's biggest pizza. We suggest Judy Moody quintuple this recipe to make five times the pizza. And that she borrow some extra ovens from neighbors to cook this super-sized pie.
  • French Toast with Maple-Strawberry Sauce

    French Toast with Maple-Strawberry Sauce

    The next time Judy Moody catches Mouse, the cat, making toast, we suggest she spring into action and whip up a batch of this non-boring breakfast favorite. It takes almost zero-teeny time to make and is tummy-rubbing delicious. If Stink is really good, she can let him lick the extra strawberry sauce off her plate. But only when she's for sure done.
  • Peach-and-Toasted Pecan Ice Cream

    Peach-and-Toasted Pecan Ice Cream

    Look out Judy Moody! Five billionty adventures is enough for a gazillion thrill points, so maybe Judy Moody should skip that death-defying dance with a runaway ice cream truck this NOT bummer summer. Instead, she could make her own fresh-from-the-truck treats that bring out the best of fresh summer flavors, like this delicious peach ice cream.
