 How do you measure your family's love for Minions? Is it by how many minion shirts your kids own? If it is my minion figures, then they might be in the running for loving them the most. One of my daughter's first words was minion, she has a deep love for these funny little guys and their ways of talking. Running around the house saying "Beedo Beedo," is almost a daily occurrence. Since these little guys entered our lives, suddenly blue and yellow is the most common color combination in our house. My 18-month-old wants everything to look like a minion, so I have gotten a lot of practice in giving everything goggles. We have already pre-ordered our movie, so we can just pick it up on December 8th and we are so excited, we are already planning on our movie night.
 These delicious parfaits are sure to be the star of our movie night. Gelatin combined with whipped cream and fun googles to wear when you are done? How does it get any better than that?

You will need:

  • 1 small package blue gelatin 
  • 1 small package yellow gelatin 
  • Silver pipe cleaners
  • Black pipe cleaners
  • Candy eyes
  • Whipped cream

 Mix up the blue gelatin according to the package directions. This is typically means to stir the gelatin with one cup of boiling water until it is dissolved. After everything is dissolved add a cup of cold water and then place in small dishes to set. This turns out the cutest in clear dishes, but you can use whatever you have. Leave the gelatin to set in the fridge for about four hours. Repeat the preparation instructions for the yellow gelatin and add a yellow layer of gelatin on top of the blue. Allow to set for about four hours.
 While your gelatin in setting up, make the pipe cleaner goggles. to make a pair with two eyes, take two pipe cleaners and make circles, leave a small amount of the piper cleaner out of the circle, as in the photo below.
 Place the circles right next to each other and twist the small extra pieces around both circles to hook them together. Fold a black pipe cleaner over the side of the silver circle and twist it together to stay. Repeat on the other side.
 When we were making these silly goggles, I ended up making a bunch of extra pairs for my crazy little minions to wear while watching Despicable Me. My girls have been waiting to bring home Minions, by Illumination Entertainment, pretty much since it hit theaters. They can't wait to have our Minions movie night at home. There is going to be a lot of giggling and antics for sure!
 After your gelatin has completely set, pull it out of the fridge and top it with a swirl of whipped cream. Add your pipe cleaner googles, a couple sprigs of cute little minion hair, in the form of more pipe cleaners and then add the eye ball the center of it all.
 Now in just a week, you can sit down, put your feet up and enjoy these darling parfaits and Minions © 2015 Universal Studios. All rights reserved, all in your own home! We can't wait.
