Twinkie Minion Makeover Sweepstakes

Hostess Invites Fans to Give Twinkies a Minion Makeover!

Hostess is inviting fans across the country to kick up their creativity and dress up their favorite golden, crème-filled treats and “Minion-ize” their Twinkies for the chance to win great prizes. Now through January 5, 2014, Hostess lovers can make the season a little brighter by visiting Hostess on Faceook to download a collection of Minion accessories, and make their own Twinkie Minion. Fans can then upload pictures of their creations to enter to win a daily instant prize, which includes a Despicable Me 2 Blu-ray™ and special offers from Hostess, or the grand prize, which includes a Home Theater System, a collection of 30 Blu-rays and a year’s supply of Hostess treats.

In celebration of the release of “Despicable Me 2″ on Blu-ray and DVD, and the Twinkie Minion Makeover Sweepstakes, I made some fun Minion Twinkie Cupcakes. I think they’re kinda cute!

Minion Twinkies Cupcakes

All you need to make these fun Minion treats are Twinkies, your favorite cupcakes, candy eyes, brown sprinkles (for hair), black gel to make the glasses, and some extra frosting to make the Minion stick to the cupcake. These cupcakes are super easy to make, and would be a great treat to have while you are watching “Despicable Me 2″ on DVD or Blu-ray.
