Don’t you love it when your kids like a movie that you can actually stand to watch over and over again? Some movies just drive me crazy, and some I actually like to sit down and watch with my kids.
My son is almost three, and he LOVES the Despicable Me movies. When we heard that they were coming out with a movie all about the minions, I was excited, too. We all piled into the van and watched Minions at the drive-in theater over the summer. As soon as it ended, I knew I wanted to add it to our Despicable Me movie collection. It definitely did not disappoint.
Little J immediately said “minions!” when he saw this popcorn mix, and we all ate a ton!
Plus, the Blue Berry Lemonade was the perfect drink to wash it down. I’d never made homemade lemonade before, but I experimented a little and loved the way it turned out!
The best part is that it’s all super simple, too. To make the Minions Popcorn Mix, first pop one bag of plain butter popcorn and spread it on a cookie sheet.
Then melt your chocolate and drizzle it all over your popcorn!
Toss in some candy eyeballs and blue and yellow chocolate candies and you’ve got yourself a chocolatey popcorn mix that is perfect for snacking on while watching Minions!
To make your lemonade, first combine 1 cup of water and 2 cups of sugar in a saucepan on medium heat.
Now add in 1 cup of blackberries and 1 cup of blueberries. Stir it all together and boil on medium for 10 minutes.
After ten minutes, mash your berries all up with a potato masher. Turn down the heat a little bit and simmer for 5 more minutes.
Now strain your syrup using a fine mesh strainer.
Add 1 1/2 cups of your syrup to a pitcher with 1/2 cup lemon juice, 5 cups of water, and 1 1/2 cups of ice. I added some blue food coloring hoping it would turn a little more blue, but my lemonade just ended up purple. Either way works! Then stir it all up and you are done!
Not bad, right? It’s the perfect snack to enjoy during your family Minions night, and your kids will think you’re the best for putting it together.
I think if you’re going to be watching Minions as a family this weekend, you’re definitely going to need to make these delicious recipes. They’re sure to make your family movie night one to remember!
