Star Shaped Food Ideas

We were seeing stars at this party! This is just a quick post overflowing with star shaped party food pics! Many years ago, we had a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star party for my daughter’s first birthday. The star shaped food was a hit! Here are some things we had at the party…also had stuffed shells & salad (completely NOT star-shaped, but…yummmmm…)!

Star Shaped Food

We made a few different star shaped foods and star shaped snacks to serve. The best thing is that they were all fairly easy to pull together. The star shaped food ideas you’ll find below include:

  • Star pretzel rods (homemade icing candy stars)
  • Star cookies
  • Star shaped tortillas (so easy to make!)
  • Star cherry pie
  • Star shaped brownies

Other items that we used to create a star theme for the party food were star toothpicks, star garland, and sugar sprinkles to top chocolate covered Oreo cookies.

Star Shaped Icing Candy- To make this star treat, I used royal icing in a piping bag. I spread out a piece of wax paper and drew small stars on the wax paper, in rows. After the icing dried, I simply peeled away the wax paper. You can read the full instructions and see pictures of the candy making process on our blog post about the star candy recipe.

The star candies would be fine on their own, or use them to decorate chocolate dipped pretzel rods like we did.

Aldi’s Sassy Apple Salsa (Go out now and buy this! It is SO good!)
Star Tortilla Chips- Star shaped dippers! These were so simple to make and you could use any shape really to make your own fun tortilla chips.
  1. Use a cookie cutter to cut store-bought tortillas.
  2. Toss them on a cookie sheet with a little olive oil.
  3. Bake at 350 for 20 min.
  4. Stir them up every once in a while with the spatula. Think of the shaped possibilities using cookie cutters…
Star food toppers- This was another fun and easy way to decorate food for a star themed party. Simply cut out stars or use a star shaped hole punch. Glue two to the top of a toothpick and poke into any snack or appetizer.
Cherry Pie using this recipe.  I love the star top!
Star shaped brownies- Use a mix, pour into a jelly roll pan to bake. They are so thin and perfect for cutting with a cookie cutter.  Sprinkle with confectioners sugar once you pull them out of the oven.  Eat all of the brownie scraps before the party 🙂
((Not food!  But a shot of my star garland.  Stars were were taped to thread.))
Buffalo Chicken Dip Cups and Barbecue Chicken Dip Cups, posted about here.
Not star shaped, these chocolate covered Oreos were sprinkled with silver sugar…from the baking aisle at the grocery store.  So good!  They were actually Aldi brand Oreos and had chocolate filling. Very yummy!
Maybe some of these star shaped foods could go along with a 4th of July Party??
