Twinkie Minions

This is a sponsored post, which means I’m getting paid to eat Twinkies and make Minions. 

A few months ago, I was creeping Pinterest, on the lookout for clever and inexpensive Halloween costumes for my kids, and I found some simple and adorable Minion costumes which I thought would be perfect for my six-year-old. Our whole family loves Despicable Me, and Despicable Me 2 is one of the only movies the four of us have seen in the theater together, so I knew that costume would be perfect. That was before I realized how impossible it was to find denim overalls for a boy over the age of two. I would have had better luck finding a pot of gold, which would have come in handy since that’s how much it costs for a pair of boys overalls if you can find them. We shelved the minion for Halloween idea for another year after I struck out one of the key components of the costume, with the hopes that overalls make a strong comeback, and in October, my boy happily grabbed a costume out of our dress-up bin.

In my Pinterest travels, though, I found the coolest Minions made out of Twinkies. I was annoyed that his birthday had recently passed, and I fully intend on making them for his 7th birthday. Because he will love it, and because it means I can buy Twinkies.

Well, I didn’t need to wait eight months to buy Twinkies, because Hostess and Universal Studios are teaming up to celebrate the Despicable Me 2 Blu-ray release with a Twinkie Minion makeover! They have these fun printable accessories HERE to Minion-ize your Twinkies, and if you upload the pictures, you can win daily prizes, or one fatty grand prize. (Fatty because it’s a big prize and also because it includes a year’s supply of Hostess treats, which will certainly do a number on your waistline.)

The kids cut out their chosen accessories while I started dinner, which is to say my first grader cut his out while my preschooler cried that it was too hard. I ended up taking care of hers after she carried on like I asked her to travel the Oregon Trail, or worse, to put her folded clothes away, and she happily slapped those adorable and perfectly cut pieces on herself.
