Hey there! My kids are super excited for the new Minions movie to come out, and they can't wait to see it. Even I think those little creatures are just adorable, and right now, we're seeing them everywhere. So when the kids asked if we could make our own edible Minions, I was completely on board with the idea, and I eagerly offered to help. So, we all pitched in and made a bunch of these little Cookie Minions. Aren't they the cutest!?
One thing that my kids and I truly enjoy doing together is decorating cookies and creating special treats. Even the teens will look up from their phones long enough to participate! Since we always have so much fun with this at Christmas, we started making treats for other holidays and sometimes, just for the fun of it.
To make the Minions, we decided to use store bought cookies and decorate them with candy coating and other items. That way, we didn't have to turn the oven on, which is always a plus in the summer.
Ingredients for Cookie Minions
- Vienna Finger cookies
- 1 10-oz bag yellow candy melts
- 1 10-oz bag blue candy melts
- edible candy eyes
- ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
I originally bought edible markers to use for drawing the details, but for some reason, they would not work on the cookies. I don't know if it was the texture of the candy coating or what.

Can you tell me how many cookies the two bags of candy melts will complete. I'm looking to make these for VBS and will probably need about 60-80 cookies (2 for each child.) Thanks!
I need to update the recipe as it's been awhile since we made these. I think we made about 10 cookies with the 2 packages of candy melts. You can buy the melts in larger sizes now, depending on what brand you get.

These are just the cutest things - how smart to use store bought cookies ( no oven in the summer is always a good thing ) I just love these !
