Minions Party Favor Food Cups
Will you be celebrating the release of the new Minions movie this month? We are so excited to be able to go to a pre-screening next Monday! If you have kids that love the Minions as much as mine does then you absolutely must recreate these cute Minion party favor food cups. The cups are made with yellow chocolate so you can fill them with whatever you want and then eat them after!
Time: 1 Hour Servings: 8
- 5 Cups Wilton Yellow Chocolate Candy Melts
- 1 Wilton 8-Cavity Round Shot Glass Mold
- Black Cake Mate Writing Gel
- Blue Cake Mate Writing Gel
- 16 Wilton Candy Eyeballs
- Nabisco Honey Maid Despicable Me Grahams
One cup of yellow chocolate candy melts at a time, place in medium microwavable mixing bowl. Heat in the microwave for 60 seconds. Remove and stir. Repeat in 20-second intervals, or until completely melted. Be sure not to overheat. Remove from microwave and stir until chocolate is completely smooth and silky.
Using a small spoon, slowly pour yellow chocolate into each shot mold. Be sure that mold has been thoroughly cleaned and dried ahead of time.
Repeat this process until all 8 shot molds have been filled.
Tap mold against countertop to ensure all air bubbles have been eliminated. Lift mold above your head to check for air bubbles. If there are none, you may proceed to the next step. Otherwise, repeat tapping. You may also stick a butter knife into each mold to help eliminate hidden air bubbles.
Place mold in freezer for approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Remove mold from freezer. Slow invert each shot mold until chocolate candy melt is released. Carefully place each chocolate mold upright onto a clean, flat surface.
Using your black writing gel, depending on which Minion you want, draw 1 to 2 oversized circles (for your Minion’s eyes). Fill each circle. Carefully place 2 candy eyeballs into each circle. Or, 1 eyeball depending on what Minion you are creating.
Using black writing gel again, draw your Minion’s mouth. Let your kid’s have fun with this! They will have unique ideas! Using your blue writing gel, draw denim overalls (from chest up) with a center pocket and 2 black dots for your suspender buttons.
Fill cups with Minion graham crackers. Serve immediately.
