The little guy in our house is OBSESSED with minions. I mean really obsessed. It all started with a YouTube video of them singing the banana song.
It was the first thing that was on the television that caught his attention. He is the only grandchild on my side of the family and I am one of six kids. So he is the center of attention when we all get together and he normally gets what he wants.
So there was a stretch of time where we saw that video a lot. He didn’t know what they were called, just that they kept saying “ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-na-na.”
So he started calling them ba-bas. We all followed suit.

The love of the video inspired MiMi and Aunt Toe-Toe to buy him a ba-ba shirt. Then there was the ba-ba baseball cap.
The ba-ba cup, the other ba-ba cup and the third ba-ba cup. There were the little toys and the spinning ba-ba that made a lot of noise and lit up (that one was thanks to his daddy.) Oh and we can’t forget the ba-ba shoes.
He even dressed up as a minion for Halloween this year. MiMi knit him the cutest little stocking cap and he wore a yellow shirt and overalls. He was pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!
My husband had to work a lot last weekend and there was rain and snow in the forecast, so it was perfect timing for the little guy and I to have a movie date. I was looking forward to snuggling up under a blanket on the couch and seeing the whole story of those little minions with one of their biggest fans.
A movie date requires snacks and this was too big of a deal for just regular snacks. This required something special!
Of course we popped a little popcorn. Little Dude loves to watch it pop and we both love snacking on it.
Little Dude inherited his sweet tooth from me, so we needed a sweet treat as well. I wanted to surprise him with something extra fun. A baked custard seemed like the perfect choice.
The smooth creamy texture is perfect for kids and adults alike. I got to indulge a little bit and he got to have a sweet treat that I didn’t have to feel bad giving him.
To dress them up for our Minions date was easy enough. I strategically placed a few thick slices of banana with the peel still on for goggles.
Every minion needs his goggles after all. A couple of blueberries for eyes, melted chocolate for goggle straps and smiles and we were ready to go!
All we had to do was pop in the movie and snuggle in!
