Minion™ Birthday Party

Get the party started with Betty’s clever birthday ideas filled with loads of fun and all the Minions you can handle.

Minion Party Food

With easy-to-make cheese sandwiches, a salty-sweet snack mix, frozen bananas and plenty of treats, this menu is sure to be a hit!


Have you ever had a sandwich that stares back at you? These Minion™ Cheese Sandwiches are made with two kinds of cheese on the bread of your choice and finished with blue Fruit Roll-Ups Foot and Fruit Gushers for the eyes.


Packed with crunchy Chex cereal pieces, freeze-dried banana chips and chocolate candies, this Minion Munch Chex® Party Mix is irresistible—but it’s the Minion fruit-flavored snacks sprinkled on top that turn it into a party hit!


Every partygoer loves a snack on a stick, so we’re serving up Despicable Me™ Chocolate-Dipped Bananas with Yogurt! To make, peel the bananas and insert the wooden sticks. Next, place in the freezer. Once firm, dip and decorate. Finally, pop into the freezer until guests arrive, then serve with Despicable Me Yoplait Yogurt.

Minion Cupcakes and Treats


Marshmallows and chocolate candies are the secret to making these Minion™ Cupcakes, made with Betty Crocker cake mix and frosting. Best of all, they can be made ahead of time then decorated the day of.

Despicable Me Minion Sheet Cake

For a clever cake version of our cupcakes, check out our Minion Sheet Cake.


The more Minions the better, so we made Minion Marshmallow Pops too! These pops use candy eyes, Fruit Roll-Ups, candy melts and, of course, marshmallows to create fun grab-and-go snacks. For a yogurt version of this recipe, see our Minion Pops.

Minion Party Favors


Send everyone home happy with a bag full of Minion loot. We found trinkets at a local party store then loaded them into clear bags with fruit-flavored snacks for a final touch.

Minion Crafts

No party is complete without activities! And when it comes to crafts, no one knows this better than blogger Courtney Sanchez. See how she makes clever Minion jars, construction hats and water bottles.


These crafty jars prove that a little yellow paint and a few plastic eyes go a long way in transforming baby-food jars into minions. We like the idea of letting partygoers decorate their own, but made ahead of time and filled with candy, they make excellent party favors too!


Build onto the fun of your party with these construction hats. It’s as easy as adding black ribbon and plastic eyes.


Party or no party, it’s important to stay hydrated, and these Minion water bottles have that covered. Created with scrapbook paper, a black marker and a handful of plastic eyes, they’re sure to be a hit.
