Despicable Me's Minions!

I've wanted to make a Twinkie minion for the longest time, ever since my friend Peggy showed me a photo of a Twinkie minion cupcake, ages ago, maybe even years ago. But then I'd never remember to buy Twinkies... and then they were gone, off the market. Phooey! But, then they brought them back, and my friend felt sorry for my sproutlets never having tried them, so she got us some.. We had one cake left over so I split it into 2 minions for Bella & Sprout :)

Minion Sandwich Bento with Twinkie in PlanetBox

The Twinkie minions have been all over Pinterest forever - but the sandwich - that design was copied from inspired by this brilliant & adorable bento by Glory's Mischief. As soon as I saw it I knew I was going to have to make my own version of it for my sproutlets - right down to also packing it in a PlanetBox Shuttle. It's so simple & perfect, I love it!  And so did my girls :)

My minion sandwich is a cheese bagel with a bit trimmed off, topped with cheddar, a strip of fruit leather, & Monterey Jack features cut with various circle cookie cutters. And I finally made a Twinkie minion, with sugar eyes, chocolate sprinkles, & a cheese smile. Lastly, golden sunburst tomatoes & baby carrots, to hopefully balance out some of that sugar ;)

  1. Oh my gosh! That's amazing! Love it! I'm going to have to attempt this! We can't eat Twinkies, so I'm going to have to figure out what else would work...

    1. This was probably their one & only Twinkie they'll get from me too, a friend bought them for us. I bet a corn dog would work, or you could even stick sugar eyes and sprinkle features on half a banana still in the peel.
