I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it before, but everyone in my house LOVES Minions. Seriously, it wasn’t enough for me to just buy Despicable Me 3 Special Edition when it recently became available on Blu Ray and DVD, or for us to have a family viewing night, I decided to go full theme with the family viewing night and made these Melted Minion Cookies!

I didn’t invent the whole concept of the cookies, I just took a Melted Snowman cookie, and adapted it for Minions.

I was thinking the could be a great idea for a party during winter break. Make the cookies and other treats (maybe bananas?) and then let the kids watch the movie while you get a little peace and quiet (if you can resist watching yourself).

HOW TO MAKE THEM

You will need:

  • yellow candy melts
  • light blue gel icing
  • black icing
  • piping bag with fine tip
  • large yellow marshmallows
  • edible eyeballs
