Minions Movie Night BEST Cheese Dip Recipe – Kids vs. Adults #MinionsMovieNight

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MinionsMovieNight #CollectiveBias What goes better with the cheesy good time laughs of the Minions movie than cheese dip? We set out to make the best cheese dip recipe to enjoy with the Minions movie. After many many experiments and cheesy taste tests, we figured out TWO great hot cheese dip recipes: Cheesy Red Pepper Dip for the grownups and Minion Nacho Cheese Dip for the kids.


But before we get into dips and cheesy things, let's talk about the Target exclusive Minions Metalpak Blu-ray/DVD (Minions © 2015 Universal Studios. All rights reserved.)! This exclusive pak DVD includes an extra 40 minutes of content and is available now, as of December 8, 2015, online and in store from your local Target.


We picked up our copy of the Target exclusive Minions Metalpak Blu-ray/DVD by Illumination Entertainment (Minions © 2015 Universal Studios) right at the checkout at Target while doing all of our regular Christmas and grocery shopping this week. Target is the perfect one-stop-shop for all your movie night needs – get the movie but also stock up on movie night favorites like popcorn, candies, and all the ingredients to make the two super CHEESY dips we're sharing below.


These two recipes are super easy to make and great for enjoying on cool nights while watching a family-friendly movie like Minions. The kids recipe is a nacho cheese dip with minion eyeballs in it. Why? Because kids love eyeballs. Like, duh. And for the adults we made a “Scarlet” inspired red pepper and cream cheese hot dip served with chips and sliced veggies like red peppers.  You can add hot cocoa, candies, and warm blankets to the repertoire to make it a cozy, fun Minions movie night. Pick up all the goods at Target along with the exclusive Minions Metalpak Blu-ray/DVD.


Isn't the Minions Metalpak Blu-ray/DVD packaging just ADORABLE? Matthew thinks so. We also got these fun onesie pajamas at Target. Your little minions will go bananas over this movie, the pajamas, and of course, the individual cheese dips you're totally gonna make with my amazing recipe. Okay, it's super simple, but no one but you and me need to know that.


Minion Nacho Cheese Dip is incredibly easy and fun to make! Set up a bar with all the ingredients so everyone can make their own custom Minion Nacho Cheese Dip cup or pre-make them for party guests and serve while watching the movie. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients + Supplies, all available at Target:

  • 1 ceramic ramekin per person
  • Circle Cookie Cutter
  • Archer Farms Salsa Con Queso
  • Market Pantry Provolone Sliced Cheese
  • Market Pantry Slice Olives (Small Can)

After the kids, young and old, are situated with their individual Minion Nacho Cheese Dips, it's now time to get to work on a cheesy movie snack for the adults: Scarlet Pepper Hot Cheese Dip! Check out the printable recipe below for creating this flavorful dip that can be served hot or cold. Again, pick up all the ingredients for this dip at Target.
