Last week we shared with you a fun and simple DESPICABLE ME -DIY Tic Tac Toe game and in keeping with that theme, this week we have more adorable minions in the form of DESPICABLE ME – Chocolate MINION Pops! We know we all love minions and who doesn’t love chocolate?!? These two favorites become the perfect pair in this fun DESPICABLE ME treat.
DESPICABLE ME – Chocolate MINION Pops
Supplies and Ingredients:
- plastic spoons – I used purple but you could use yellow, blue, or orange
- yellow candy melt
- blue candy melt
- white chocolate
- black gel food coloring
- small paint brush
- microwave safe bowls
- wax paper
Begin by heating the blue candy melt in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds, stir and heat an additional 30 seconds or until candy melt is completely melted and smooth.
Carefully dip and coat each plastic spoon with the blue candy melt and place on wax paper to dry. Try to smooth the candy melt as much as possible so that it is not lumpy when dry.3
When blue candy melt has completely cooled and become hard, melt the yellow candy melt using the same method.
Coat 2/3 of the spoon with the yellow candy melt, again trying to leave it as smooth as possible. Stand the spoons in a shallow glass to allow the candy melt to harden.
When the yellow candy melt is hard, melt a very small of white candy melt following the same instructions.
Using a spoon, add a small dot of white candy melt for eyes on each MINION Pop. You can give some minions 1 eye and some 2. Return the pops to the glass to let eyes harden.
While the white candy melt hardens, mix a small amount of vanilla and black gel food coloring in a bowl. You’ll need only a pea size amount of food coloring and less than 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Stir together to create a food coloring “paint”.
Use your small paint brush to paint on the pupils of the eyes, the black goggle band, and the minion’s smile. Let this “paint” dry completely before serving.
These DESPICABLE ME – Chocolate MINION Pops can stand in a glass or jar for serving or individually wrapped in mini bags for a giveaway treat at a party. They are a perfect treat for a family game night with the DESPICABLE ME – DIY Tic Tac Toe board!
