It's been insanely hot this week in Northern California, so when Bounty asked if I'd come up with a fun, kid-friendly dessert to celebrate the new Despicable Me 3 movie and Bounty's limited edition paper towels and quilted napkins, I knew just what to make... Despicable Me Minion popsicles!

And because I had Bounty paper towels next to me, which are both super strong and super absorbent, I wasn't afraid to get a little messy!

Supplies (affil):  

Directions:

Fill your popsicle molds halfway with the Citrus Cooler Gatorade. I varied mine so I could make different sized Minions.

Cover with tin foil and gently place the sticks in each one. You want to make sure the sticks are straight.

Put in the freezer for a few hours until the yellow Gatorade is completely frozen. Next top the popsicle molds off with the Blue Cherry Gatorade and put back in the freezer.

To make the googles, either use black licorice shoelaces, or if you can't find shoelaces (like me), use a thicker black licorice and with a sharp knife cut thin slices.

Using the Wilton's Dab-N-Hold, glue the eyes on the licorice. Then gently glue the sides together to make goggles. I measured them on the popsicle molds to make sure they would fit.

Bounty also sent me some Despicable Me goodies -- a Despicable Me 3 lunch box and mug, some cute magnets, and a DVD of Despicable Me 2 --to help show off my treats. Thanks, Bounty!

These get messy quickly, especially in our heat, so make sure you have Bounty. And aren't these paper towels so cute?! My daughter fell in love with them right when she saw them. :)

And if you don't want to go to the trouble of making goggles, just make Minion-colored popsicles. These look great all by themselves and your kids will eat them up!
