We are getting soooooo excited about MINIONS arriving in theaters July 10th! We have loved these little yellow guys ever since we first saw them in the original Despicable Me. They so totally deserve their own movie! To celebrate, we have a super fun Minions Snack Mix Recipe. It’s fun and easy to make. The kids can get involved too, especially if you start with a bag of mixed colors M&Ms they can help you sort out the blue and the yellow to make your mix look nice and “minioney”.
Some notes on ingredients: You can get more involved and make your own Muddy Buddies to start the recipe, but to make it nice and easy, you can buy it pre-made. For this mix we used the peanut butter flavor and the brownie flavor. When it comes to M&Ms, as we mentioned above you can use regular M&Ms and sort them out, or else you can buy bags of blue M&Ms and yellow M&Ms.
Minions Snack Mix Recipe
If you are using the optional candy melts, melt according to the package instructions.
Mix the Muddy Buddies and pretzel sticks together.
Drizzle the melted candy melts.
Sprinkle with the Wilton Candy Eyes and M&M’s.
If not using the candy melts, simply mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
MINIONS will be in theaters soon, so plan ahead and save your seat by pre-ordering your tickets from Fandango! They also have super cute collectable Minions gift cards that would make a great gift for any Minion lover (or to keep for yourself!)
