Minion Cookie on a Stick
These Minions were created using a store bought cookie.
I think you might recognize these yummy treats.
That’s right, I used the Vienna Finger Cookie.
Carefully pry them open and use a paper straw as the stick in the middle.
Now don’t try to just use the creme filling to hold the straw in place.
You will need some glue and not the kind you used in elementary school.
Melt some chocolate wafers and dip the straw into the chocolate and then carefully sandwich them back together.
Continue with as many minions as you wish to create.
Once you have your cookies on a stick you will use the melted chocolate to coat the cookies and allow them to dry.
I like to melt the chocolate in a bowl place in a pot with water in the bottom.
Warming it in this way keeps the chocolate from burning.
Once you have all the sticks in place and you have coated them with chocolate you can add candy arms.
I colored the ends of yellow Pez candy with black food markers, then glued them to the sides with chocolate.
Next I piped on black royal icing for the goggle straps (though at this stage they look more like eyebrows).
Now our fine young fellows were in need of some pants.
For this step I melted blue chocolate and panted on the pants and allowed the chocolate to set.
Now all that was left was the hair and eyes.
The hair is actually chocolate sprinkles, individually attached with yellow chocolate,
and they eyes were Smarties candy.
To create the goggle look, I dotted the center with black icing and painted the edges with silver Pearl Dust mixed with a couple drops of water.
It looks tedious, but actually moves along quickly.
All that was left was to dab the back of the eyes with chocolate and adhere them to the Minion.
Presto, Minion Magic.
The center Minion I actually covered with fondant.
That was a bit more difficult to do, but better details.
