Whether you have kids or work with them or have a million nieces and nephews, I’m sure at one point or another you have heard about Despicable Me, or better yet, the Minions! I literally watch the movies because they.crack.me.up (especially Bob). They are too cute!

I recently took a trip back home to Miami in August for a much needed break from Texas (I love you but you’re exhausting sometimes…). It was great to see and catch up with everyone but my favorite part of the trip was getting to spend 2 whole days at Universal Studios with my mom! I hadn’t been since October and so much had changed but the one thing I was adamant on was FINALLY going on the Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride.

I didn’t care how long I needed to wait but I was going on that ride! As soon as we got in, we headed straight to it with the intentions of waiting what ever it takes… My heart sunk a little when I realized it was 9 a.m.  and there was a 90 minute wait but it’s okay! I’ll wait…

… That did not last very long. If you’ve ever been to Florida, you know when it’s hot, it’s HOT. So we decided to wait till the wait time lowered and we snuck in next door to get some snacks and we stumbled upon the bakery display case and I was so amazed!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Combine your cake mix, flour, vegetable oil and egg whites into a bowl and mix it until it’s blended together. Add a couple drops of blue gel food coloring to your dough.

Once the cookie dough is starting to blend with the blue, use your hand and continue to knead the cookie dough. (Be mindful that your hands may turn blue but it comes out easily… maybe.)
