Recipes Inspired by Beauty and the Beast
Celebrate this tale as old as time with dishes inspired by the fairy tale's French country setting, its enchanted castle and all your favorite characters. These recipes invite you to be our guest for a truly magical Beauty and the Beast party.
These sweet and simple treats represent the enchanted rose from the Beast’s castle, which counts down the time left for the Beast to find true love. Pile them under a glass cloche to add an extra wink to the movie.
After refusing to dine with the Beast on her first night at the castle, she admits to the servants she’s just a bit hungry. They pull out all the stops with an over-the-top feast, which includes a pillow-topped souffle like this one.
We can’t help but think Belle would grab a crusty loaf of this fresh-baked bread to enjoy while paging through her favorite book in the square of her little country village.
To reach the Beast’s castle, Belle must journey through a dark and foreboding forest. We’re pretty sure if it ended with a sweet cheery topping and chocolate drizzle, we would’ve braved the forest, too.
Loaded with hearty potatoes, bacon and-of course-topped with plenty of eggs, this is the way we think Gaston starts every very-manly day.
When the Beast’s spell is broken, he entire castle transforms into a sparkling sunny place that’s filled with love, much like these sweet little cakes with candy embellishments.
The castle servants welcome Belle with a huge dinner spread, including a bounty of pies and cakes decorated to impress. This pretty white cake is perfect for any celebration, and even includes a wink to the enchanted rose with the strawberry-mint adornment on top.
The Beast may look like a giant monster, be we know he has a sweet side-just like these oversize peanut butter cookies.
At the end of the song “Be Our Guest”‘ champagne bottles pop, shooting bubbles across the dining room as Belle is welcomed to the castle. These fun champagne gelatin treats might make for a little easier cleanup after the celebration.
Crepes are a classic French dish that are like very thin, delicate pancakes. We wouldn’t be surprised to see them piled high and filled with bright strawberry and lemon flavor at one of Belle and the Beast’s breakfasts.
The baker in Belle’s village may have his own version of this beautiful French pastry, but we’re willing to bet this buttery homemade version is just as delicious.
Celebrate the moment Belle and the Beast’s love breaks the curse with these sweet, heart-shaped whoopie pies with a fun, chocolate chip filling.
