When I think of the cartoons that defined my childhood I think of Elmo, Pound Puppies, Rainbow Brite, Popples…what can I say, I am a child of the 80’s. As I look at how much my kids LOVE the Minions I know that to them the Minions will be to them what a Popple is to me. Minion anything will get them squealing in excitement. These easy Minion Cookies were a surprise to them one afternoon. They were a major hit!

While enjoying this snack we played a game. Minion facts! Here are some Minion Facts that you probably don’t know 😉

  1. Tall minions all have the same haircut.
  2. One-eyed minions are rarely tall.
  3. The directors of Despicable Me have stated that Minions were written into the script to make Gru more likeable

  4. Minions speak a mixture of Spanish, English, French, and Italian, with additional elements of Russian and Korean.
  5. Minions can survive in outer space, meaning they resist freezing and do not need to breathe oxygen.
  6. The evil Minions are purple because purple and yellow are on opposite sides of the color spectrum.

And of course the most important fact…

A third Despicable Me film has been confirmed by Universal for Summer 2017.

Fun stuff. Now that you have probably met your quota for the year on Minion facts you are probably itching for how to make those cookies! (printable recipe below)
