It was around 7 pm Sunday night when I saw this “one in a Minion” idea. I got my things together and ran to Price Chopper for all the ingredients. Total, I spent $13 (Pepperidge Farm Milano’s are on sale this week!!) $15 total when you add in the Minion Valentines I had already purchased. I also wanted to get these done and packaged so I used Price Chopper snack sizes bags, but you can use any bag to seal them.
Now, I am not the most artistic person, stick figures are my version of art, so ANYONE can do this! I will admit, the first bag of Milano’s served as practice, but then I got the hang of it.
Here is what you do:
- Start at the bottom of the cookie to make the pants. Then use the thin circle attachment on the blue icing to make the overalls.
- Use black icing to seal the eyes on the cookie, draw a line on either side of the eye to create the goggle line. (If you use anything other than candy eyes, place a black dot on the eye)
- Use black icing to draw the mouth
- Let cookies sit for about 30 minutes before you package them so the icing will dry.
- Place cookie in bag and seal (seal will be lengthwise if you use snack bags)
- Glue or staple Minion Valentine to the bag.
- If you don’t have the Valentines, use card stock to create and print your message. Many people use “Valentine, you’re one in a Minion”.
I was done with these in about 2 hours. Don’t judge me, I already admitted I wasn’t artistic! But once I got the hang of it, I was able to make each one pretty quickly! My son did “help” me, but he was more interested in seeing the finished product! So, this is a great project to do together as a family as well!
I can’t wait to send these to school with my son! They are not “perfect” minions, but I love them!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
