Despicable Me 3 hits theaters today and to celebrate we have a super cute and EASY recipe for you to make with Minions fans in your life. If you and your kids love Minions as much as my family does, you will have so much fun making these! You can get very creative with their faces and expressions. The best part is, they are so easy to make. You don’t need much artistic ability at all!
- 1 box of your favorite BANANA pudding(plus ingredients to make it)
- a few Mini Oreos twisted in half, keeping the half that is filled
- 1 sliced BANANA
- brown M&M candies
- black writing icing
- about 1/2 cup of whipped topping
- yellow food coloring(optional)
Make your pudding according to the directions on the package. If you want to make them a little more yellow, add food coloring right away. I did, so I could get that classic Minion color! When you have it all mixed up, pour a little into each cup. Next add some sliced BANANAs, then top it with more pudding and refrigerate for about 1 hour to set.
Place your whipped topping inside a plastic bag, I used a sandwich bag, nothing fancy. Cut the tip off one corner of the bag and pipe it along the sides of the pudding to create a Minion head shape.
Put the Oreos with filling side up in the center of your pudding. Using some of your black writing icing, make a small dab on one side of an M&M and stick it to your Oreo. On the sides of the Oreo, use a little black writing icing to create the band of the goggles.
Now comes the fun part! Making the expressions!! There is no right or wrong way to do it. Everyone thought they were so cute! Almost too cute to eat. But we still managed to devour these fun BANANA desserts!
About The Movie
Illumination, who brought moviegoers Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the story of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3.
After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother—a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps—one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.
We saw an early screening of the film and let me tell you it’s sooo cute and funny! The entire theater was laughing! Plus, it had a KILLER soundtrack including some of my favorite 80s jams! Grab your family and Say “Aloha to the Minions!
