Ever since we saw Despicable Me, I’ve wanted to make minion twinkies. I know, it’s so cliche. But those little yellow creatures were begging for me to turn them into cute Valentine snacks. Everyone will go “ba-na-nas” for these Valentine Minion Twinkies!
Aren’t they adorable?!
I decided to give them festive red pants!
These treats are super easy to whip up! All you need is red icing, Twinkies, and eyeball candies. I also used white icing and black icing for the details.
Begin by filling a small glass bowl with red icing. Place in microwave for 20 seconds to melt. Stir until smooth.
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Dip the bottom half of the twinkie in the melted red icing.
Continue dipping the twinkies. You may have to re-melt the icing as it hardens pretty quickly. Place the dipped twinkies on the cookie sheet and allow to dry.
Once the red icing has hardened, ice a white stripe as the top of the pants.
Use the white icing to attach the eyeball candies.
Last but not least, add a little minion smirk with the black icing.
I absolutely love how they turned out! Kyle and Reed both gave them 2 thumbs up!
