Yay, Yay, Yay, Charlie B turned two on Sunday!
One of her favorite movies is Despicable Me, so to celebrate her bday I planned a Minion themed party. I got a few ideas from Pinterest and decided to recreate them … and if I do say so my self, I NAILED IT!!
This Is the Minion marshmallow pop from Pinterest.
Here’s mine. BOOM!
Here’s the recipe. All I used were these ingredients…
-Yellow Candy Melts
-Black Decorating Icing
-Blue Gel Icing
First, I put one stick in each marshmallow.
Then, I melted the yellow candy melts.
Using a spoon to help, I covered each marshmallow with the melted candy and let dry for about 5 minutes.
Then, decorate! For me, I put the blue gel around the bottom of the marshmallow to mimic the Minion overalls, a dot of black icing to hold the eyes in place, a ribbon of black icing around the marshmallow to look like glasses and voila … Mini-Minions!!
I also made Minion cupcakes. I had my local grocery store make two dozen white cupcakes with yellow frosting (I was going to make the cupcakes myself but I was low on time … don’t judge me :-P). The I took my large marshmallows, cute them in half and used them for the base of my eye. I took the black icing and used it for the pupils and glasses. Super simple, super cute!
