Recipes Inspired By The Hunger Games

If you haven't heard of the book The Hunger Games, you are a little late to the party. Fans of the young adult novel by Suzanne Collins have been going crazy ever since they heard about the widely popular book being made into a film. 

To celebrate the film, we've put together our favorite recipes inspired by the movie we discovered across the Web.


  • These creative cookies by Lizy B Bakes were made with sugar sheets and they look amazing! We love how Lizy really nailed the main colors of the movie on the cookies and those mockingjays look perfect too.

  • Reminiscent of Peeta and Katniss' meal together, this apple and goat cheese tart from Scarletta Bakes is a delicious mixture of several trypes of apples with cinnamon. lemon zest and cheese. 

  • Playing on the importance of poisonous berries, Confessions of a Cookbook Queen whipped up these berry cakes with pound cake and blackberry sauce. We especially love the candied berries on top!

  • Inspired by Katniss' favorite lamb stew, Rae Gun Ramblings shares a slow cooker recipe for lamb and dried plum and it looks delicious!

  • During Katniss' first night away from her family, she attends a feast that ends with chocolate cake. Contributor Krissy Winnick whipped up this decadent chocolate recipe covered in a chocolate buttercream.  

  • These Sweethearts cookies from Fictional Food were named after Haymitch’s pet name for Katniss. We love the stamped phrases on each of the cookies from the book!
  • These inspired cupcakes by Erica's Sweet Tooth used crushed Oreos to represent coal and the fire-like frosting to symbolize the "girl on fire." The arrow printable topper is a great addition too!
