So, my big guy and I LOVE to watch Nerdy Nummies on YouTube. Seriously. Check it out. I’m pretty sure she and I are related 🙂 Anyway, as a VERY special treat I have attempted to conquer a couple of Rosanna’s creations and yesterday it was…minion cake pops! To see the FULL directions and video, click HERE. Beware- these videos are addicting! So, my little and I set out to make these babies. First, mama made a cake; it was one of the coach’s birthdays at Girls on the Run so I made a rectangular cake, and made ONE cut to make a square cake which I iced for the birthday and left the rest for the cake pops. I put the left over cake in a bowl and mushed it until it was in fine pieces.
Then I added a dollop of chocolate frosting (you can use any flavor), I know, my measurements are SUPER precise 🙂
I mushed it up until it became a pasty play dough texture. THEN I formed the minions. I did half round balls (BOB) and half banana shaped ones. Sorry. Lacking pictures 🙂 I then put the balls/bananas (lol) in the fridge to harden. While the little was napping, I inserted the cake pop sticks about halfway, adding a bit of frosting as “glue” and let them set int he fridge. When the little guy woke up, we got to work decorating! First, the minions got dipped in yellow totally (buy yellow chocolate melts and melt in microwave, stovetop or fondue pot)…
Then, we dipped in blue (blue chocolate melts) to give them pants! We then sort of improvised with smarties as eyes (chocolate frosting for the retinas) and I piped blue frosting to define the pants lines. I used chocolate frosting piped for the goggle lines.
So listen, they were more delicious than anything. Not as cute as Rosanna’s but a good start! And, a had a bunch of little fans of these (and isn’t that what really matters?!)!
