Marshmallow Minions

Anyone who has been talking to me over the last one week has heard the word ‘Minion’ atleast a couple of millions times. (I wish I was even closely exaggerating!) No, I have not seen the movie, yet! 🙁 But I have been singing ‘Potatoooo’ and ‘Bananaaaaa’ in high pitches and the true cause for my excitement is that McDonalds is offering the Minions from the movie as part of their Happy Meal toys. (Yes, my true age is 2 and a half, so stop judging! :P)

I have so far collected 4 of these minions, and I am guessing some more happy meals will be happening soon! =D (Okay, seriously. Stop judging!)

I did find this fantastic recipe online on how to make these awesome minions, with a marshmallow base!

2. Melt the Candy Melts in a Microwavable Bowl

3. Dip each stick into the molten candy melt and then stick a marshmallow to the end of the stick. Once that is done, wait for the candy melt to harden a bit, before dipping your entire marshmallow into the candy melt.

4. Once the marshmallows have been dipped, ensure that you remove any extra candy melts and let the marshmallows dry.

5. Open up a special packet of Despicable Me Roll Ups and cut the blue portion to get these marshmallows some fancy clothes! 😉 Minion Overalls is the word I believe! Hehe.

To be honest, these marshmallow minions will be a little too difficult to eat. They look too cute and super real to the actual minions! 😀 Don’t believe me? Take a look at one of the minions I have!

And till then, ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-banana, ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-banana 😀 Potatooooooo!!!!

Psst: They also make fantastic cupcake toppers! (You can thank me later!)

I was asked, what do you want to be when you grow up? As a kid I answered that I wanted to be a good person. It was only recently that I realized that all I want to do, is eat good food. And make good food, since; for me, and I quote George Bernard Shaw - "There is no love sincerer, than the love of food."
