Back to the yeti hunt we go… If you’ve missed our Yeti Party recaps, you can find them all here.
We’ve been sharing the yeti inspired get together throughout the last couple posts, but it’s down to the food!
And what good yeti seeker doesn’t need sustenance?!
This was one of the hardest parts of the Yeti Party, if you can believe it. There were only a few yeti parties out there to gain inspiration from (which is why I’m sharing so much of ours so when your little yeti lover wants a party, you’ve got options).
YETI TO EAT
So we came up with a menu that included mostly sweets because we figured a yeti would appreciate that and be more enticed by sweet treets than a veggie tray – sorry mom! A party is always better with lots of sugar, right?! Maybe that’s why the girls stayed up until 2am! There was also a little bit of research that went into naming these eats by looking up lots of famous Yetis. That’s harder than you’d think!
But coming up with fun ideas that weren’t too crazy hard and were semi-original was the gameplan!
Here is our Yeti to Eat menu:
We made our own version of a yeti popcorn which included freshly popped corn, melted vanilla chocolate wafers in a blue color that was drizzled over the popcorn, confetti chocolate chips, blue sprinkles, and snowflake sprinkles.
Topped off with Snowcap candy as the final touch.
SNOW GHOST SNOWBALLS
Basic powdered sugar-covered cake donut holes purchased at our local grocer.
Ella wanted a drink that was GOOD but also something different than our normal water and Capri suns so we came up with this punch inspired by the Abominable Snowman, Marshmallow (from Frozen), by mixing blue Gatorade with sprite. The girls loved it. Easy and delish!
I went through an entire package of Kodiak Bear Snacks to find all the paw shapes. I pulled them out and set them separately…
These were the Yeti tracks.
KOLKA YETI CAKE
An easy make at home style cake
6 inch confetti cake rounds stacked on top of each other, layerd with vanilla icing, and then decorated to look like a friendly yeti.

MEECHEE FISH SNACKS
While we aren’t sure what yetis eat because they’ve never been found we assume they’d like fish. Most bear-like creatures do, so why wouldn’t a yeti? These are just a bag of pretzel goldfish.
EVEREST HOT CHOCOLATE
Very basic hot chocolate taken to the next level with snowflake marshmallow adornments.
These you can easily make a version of, or purchase snowflake shaped premade marshmallows.
PIZZA & BREADSTICKS
We just ordered Hungry Howies as soon as the girls arrived!
Pizza and breadsticks are the perfect budget friendly dinner for a group of hungry yeti hunters!
I linked a post on a few people to go to for inspiration, but we made an easy pancake board with some bacon and fruit and everyone loved it! They could just pick and choose what they wanted.
