Oscar Movie Inspired Oscar Party Foods

I have put together a menu of appetizers, main meals and desserts for your Oscar Party.  These Oscar Party foods are inspired by the 2012 Oscar Nominated Movies.  If I would have to chose one of the movies for an Oscar Party theme for myself, I would chose The Help.  The good Ole Southern cooking in this movie is delicious, except for the Chocolate Pie (you would have had to watch the movie to understand--google it!).  The link to the recipe for the Mississippi Mud Pie will sure to be a crowd pleaser--if you stick to the ingredients and don't add any of your own "special" ingredients that is!

Pain au Chocolat or Croissants au Chocolate - I recommend you buy some chocolate filled croissants or spread chocolate spread in the middle of mini croissants as they are a bit tricky to make.
