So there’s this movie coming out, with some of my most favorite movie characters EVER in it. Maybe you’ve heard of them? They are yellow and weird and have a propensity to make you laugh and laugh when onscreen? The Minions? Well, the movie arrives in theaters this Friday (July 10), and I can’t even wait. I might even bring the kids… but really, we fell for these weird and adorable (and naughty!) little yellow friends in Despicable Me, and were head over heels for them in Despicable Me 2. Now, finally, they are having their time in the spotlight… and of course we couldn’t resist making some fun snack mix to get into Minions mode for the movie watching! My favorite part of this easy snack mix is that you don’t need talent, baking skills, decorating skills or anything to make this recipe. You need a few ingredients and something to mix them in. No risk for Pinterest fails here!
Minions Snack Mix
- 2 C. Minions cheese crackers (Cheese Nip brand)
- 2 C. mini pretzel twists
- 1 C. blue M&M’s (check your local grocer for a bulk section with individual colored candies before purchasing a bag of M&M’s and picking out all the blue….like I did)
- Combine all the ingredients and serve or put into small snack size baggies for the kiddos.
