If I won I’d send to my son who is in a different state than I am and he could have his own party with his 5 children he is raining alone
We were just talking about birthdays in my house and my five year old has decided he is having a Minion Party this year. It’s going to be epic!
I’d have everyone come dressed in yellow….maybe make some yellow minion “hats/heads” for guests to wear, and definitely serve a banana themed menu!

I’d love to use this recipe for my son’s birthday coming up in May! We could have Minion “goggles”, party noisers, and of course the minion munch would make the perfect dessert to go with cake & ice cream!
