Minion Muddy Buddies...WHAAAT?!

Sharing is caring!

Are your kids Minion fans? Mine most definitely are! Our home has sounded like it is occupied by a bunch of fire engines since taking them to see the latest Minion movie….

BEEDO….BEEDO. Yep.

This Minion Muddy Buddy Mix was developed out of my daughter’s imagination to provide a fun and mischievous afternoon snack. This is just as delicious as it is fun!

Minion Muddy Buddies...WHAAAT?!

When trying to figure out how to come up with BLUE Chex Mix for our muddy buddies we were a tad stumped. Neither one of us really cared for the idea of mixing blue raspberry jello with white chocolate. I LOVE both blue jello and white chocolate. And I LOVE raspberries and chocolate. So maybe that would work…but just something about that combination did not sit right with me!

And then while we were killing time at Hobby Lobby (because that is a serious family activity for us) we stumbled across this brilliant product. Blue Candy Melts. Ok, so nothing life changing or new, but a big solution to our problem!

This took us less than 15 minutes to throw together and was a total blast.
