Need "Frozen" party food ideas!

Hi guys! My little one is turning 3 next month. We're having a Disney Frozen party. I need some suggestions for easy finger foods in a Frozen theme (those not acquainted, this is Frozen). For the goody bags I've already got my eyes on rock candy (frozen ice) as one item. LOL But I'd like some food-food ideas. They will all be about 3-5yrs old, but we will have adults there too. They will have pizza as their main thing, but I was hoping for some snacky finger foods that both adults and kiddos would like. Any thoughts? 

The party is not going to be at the house, but at a bowling alley, so it should be portable and probably not something that would need to be cold the entire time. 

Thanks!!!

Since you want to honor the "world" of Frozen, which in the real world would be NORTH, how about open sandwiches?  These need not be "real" Danish open sandwiches, which, altho beautiful, are frequently an aquired taste, but a friendly variation on that theme. Call it a "Smorgasbord".

Look for appetizers where the ingredients pretty much "stick" to the sandwich bottom, without a lot of toppings or sauces.  Here are some ideas...

http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/chili-cheese-ball-spread  Make the spread and "pre-spread" on crackers, garlic rounds, or taco chips

You can spread garlic rounds with horseradish sauce, and top with rare roast beef

Spread grahams with peanut butter, top with banana slices

Spread grahams with Nutella, top with mini marshmallows

PS: Keeping with the theme, tell whoever is supplying the pizza, that you want it cut into 1 INCH squares. They are MUCH easier to pop into the mouth that way, without a lot of drip, and are easier for kiddie hands to manage. One restaurant we go to, does pizza that way to serve as appetizers. We loved the idea, and have used it ourselves.

I had a Frozen party for my son and we made Kristoff ic blocks with blue jell-o. Big hit with kids! You can also do Sven's reindeer food with Chex mix, pretzels and m&ms. Then,there are build your own Olafs (put 2 big and 2 small marshmellows, 5 mini chocolate chips, 2 pretzel sticks and an orange Reese's in a plastic bag). There are also Melted Olafs, where you label small water bottles with "Melted Oflaf; because some people are worth melting for". I made the labels and used double sided tape to put them on the bottles.

Hi I just saw someone on FB post about a Frozen party and one cute thing they did for dessert was have a bowl of powdered donut holes as snow balls. You may or may not want to tempt fate with powdered sugar, but I thought it was cute.

I like the build a snowman/Olaf idea - and what about just putting out some carrots (noses) and thin pretzels (arms) too? 

I can't think of any food-food related but since Anna and Elsa love chocolate, what about a chocolate fondue in a crock pot? Somewhat portable I would think? Or you could make it be. That would be something nice/neat for the adults at the end. I found this recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/slow-cooker-chocolate-fondue-recipe.html - the comment at the bottom mentioned she brought the fondue somewhere and it was still a hit so it could work for you.
