Oscar Party Treats!


The Oscars are tomorrow!  Are you having a viewing party??  The Milly & Grace Girls love any excuse to throw a little party… and an Oscars Party is one of my favorites.  So I put together a few must have treats and traditions that would be perfect for an Oscar Party.

First up, Caramel Corn… When I think of popcorn, I think of the movies.  An easy way to fancy up this classic movie treat for an Oscar Party is to cover it with sweet caramel and edible gold stars!  I think Caramel Corn is going to be my newest Oscar Party Tradition…


This was my first time making caramel corn… it was really easy!  I used this recipe but doubled the vanilla (I always double the vanilla in every recipe… especially my cookie recipes).  I sprinkled the Edible Gold Stars (available at Michael’s) after I took the popcorn out from the oven!


You can easily make customized popcorn bags!  All you need are these little white bags, letter stamps and a ink pad!  All available at Michael’s.


Red Licorice is a classic movie theater treat from the 1920’s.  I was reading up on Bon Appetit’s History of Movie Theater Treats that the war between Twizzler and Red Vine started in the early 20th century.  Fun Fact:  Twizzlers were born in the mid 1800’s and Red Vines were born in 1920.  I know I am not the only one that always thought that Red Vines were the original red licorice!  I used to be a Twizzler girl back in the day but now I LOVE Red Vines more! (Who knew I could write so much about red licorice?)


Chocolate Covered Strawberries are an Ott Oscar Party Tradition… I decided to fancy them up too with a sprinkle of gold! I might have gone a little crazy with the Edible Gold Stars!  That little tube of stars goes a long way.


And finally, every party has to have a signature drink!  In honor of Shirley Temple, I decided to try out a new cocktail.  Everyone knows the “Dirty Shirley” which is a Shirley Temple with Vodka.  But I thought I needed to keep it classy…


A Champagne Shirley Temple Cocktail was born!  Grenadine, Champagne, finished with Sprite and of course…. a cherry on top!


And there you have it!  A few sweet treats for your Oscar Party!  If you need something savory, you can always do a cheese plate or these amazing Chipotle and Rosemary Spiced Nuts.


That little Oscar in all those pictures above is from my 13th Birthday party!  Maybe one day… I’ll be able to replace it with a real one?!  A girl can dream!


  1. Allison, where’s your Oscar Party? Are you back on the West Coast. I wish I could come!

  2. Such cute ideas, Allie! Love those little gold stars!
    Keep following your dream….I believe in you!
    The best is yet to come! xoxo
