Your family’s descending for their annual Christmas movie night- Home Alone! But are you ready?

There’s still time to make the night extra special by serving up a Home Alone-themed grazing board. From little ‘lovely’ cheese pizzas to mini junk ’n’ rubbish sundaes, this board captures all the movie foods that scream— Kevin!

Mac and Cheese Balls

“Bless this highly nutritious microwavable macaroni and cheese dinner and the people who sold it on sale. Amen.”

Whether you’re making this from scratch or using leftovers, Mac and cheese balls are an easy way to serve up dinner on a board.

Some tips:

  • Add extra cheese and evaporated milk to the mix to help the mac and cheese stick together.
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop even amounts.
  • Use panko crumbs for a crispy texture.
  • Use wet hands to shape the balls.
  • You could make the box version of Mac and cheese, but it’s just as easy to follow a from-scratch version with lots of delicious spices from The Unofficial Home Alone Cookbook. It’s better than the version you remember as a kid.

Pair your mac and cheese with little milk shots to complete the scene.

Parent-free Popcorn

Kevin jumps for joy at his new-found freedom, but personally, I think having a movie night is enough of a reason to make a bag. To make this popcorn Home Alone-themed, try this ‘lovely’ cheese pizza popcorn topping as a nod to Kevin.

You’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons shelf-stable cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato soup powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Italian herbs
  • 2 bags popcorn

If you want to make a healthy version of popcorn, I’ve included a stovetop version in The Unofficial Home Alone Cookbook.

@brytontaylor Home Alone Movie Night = pizza and popcorn 🍕🍿 Even better when you combine the two together 🙌 You'll need: 2 tbsp shelf stable cheese 1 1/2 tbsp tomato soup powder 1 1/2 tsp Italian herbs 2 bags popcorn . . . . #popcorn #homealone #christmasmovienight #christmasmovie #movienight #Christmascountdown ♬ original sound – Bryton Taylor

A lovely cheese pizza just for me.”

Follow the pizza dough recipe from The Unofficial Home Alone Cookbook in video at the end of this post and make single-serve pizza bases.

Tip: Make the dough golf ball size so they fit in the mini pizza boxes. Or go the shortcut route and use store-bought mini pizza serves or tortilla bases when you’re in a pinch.

Mini Junk ‘n’ Rubbish Sundaes

The grand finale for the perfect Home Alone-themed grazing board- your very own junk ‘n’ rubbish sundaes!

  • Use a measuring spoon to get these perfect little individual ice cream scoops.
  • Remember to dip the spoon into water between each scoop to get a smooth ‘run’ through the ice cream that finishes with that ice cream ripple.
  • Make the bowls in advance and pop them in the freezer until you’re ready to serve to keep the ice cream scoops firm.
  • Top with mini marshmallows and chocolate sauce.

There’s a more-ish chocolate fudge sundae sauce in The Unofficial Home Alone Cookbook that’s well worth the little extra effort!
