Bello! Who else rushed to Target to grab the Minions Metalpak Blu-ray/DVD – Deluxe (a Target exclusive) on December 8th, the big release day?! We’ve watched it practically every day since we got it and I even planned a special movie night with a hot cocoa bar for my family. We couldn’t just have regular hot chocolate, we had to do it minions style with blue cocoa and edible eyeballs on top of the whipped cream. Oh and did I mention the sprinkle rimmed mugs? Pretty much the coolest mom ever. Bee do bee do bee do! Yes, I’m also fluent in minion talk. One of my many talents, besides making a mean cup of hot cocoa lol!

Step 3: Place milk, vanilla and Market Pantry white chocolate chips in a saucepan over low-medium heat, continuously stirring until the chocolate fully melts. The liquid should never reach a boil. Add in 5-10 drops of blue food coloring until you get your desired color of blue and mix well. Pour into sprinkles rimmed cups.
