Disney’s Descendants: Mal’s Evil Apples

We finally had a chance this weekend to sit down and watch Disney’s Descendants. What a cute movie for all to enjoy! 

In Disney’s Descendants, Beast (from Beauty and the Beast) is married to the lovely Belle and they rule the United States of Auradon, which is the United Nation and homeland to all the Heroes and Villains of Disney. All of the villains from the movies are imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost with a magical spell that has been keeping them trapped there. That is…until the villains have children of their own…

Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos are the children of the most infamous villains who have ever lived. When Beast and Belle’s son, Ben decides to free the children of their villainous parents, he starts out by allowing them to attend Auradon Prep school to learn right alongside the children of Disney’s Heroes. But the children are sent to execute a plan to assist their parents in achieving domination yet again!

There’s lots of dancing and songs throughout the movie which got Bunbun out of her seat a few times. I personally enjoyed all the songs and Mal quickly became my favorite character. Disney’s Descendants is awesome to the core! How about some of Mal’s Evil Apples?

    Where did you find the purple ribbon with the black edges?

    How long will these keep? I want to make them this weekend for a party next weekend. Would that work if I put them in the fridge?

      Putting them in the fridge can be a bit sticky and tricky! The condensation makes them “sweat” and they get a little difficult to handle.
