Much loved Minion Cookies

Children are fond of cookies and love eating them. Here is a recipe for making mischievous minion inspired cookies and wow kids. This is the simplest recipe I ever tried and the whole cookie thing was a huge hit.


  • Candy eyeballs
  • Blue & Black icing
  • Milano Cookies


  1. Make eye straps on cookies using black icing and then place one of the candy eyes on it. For piping black icing, use a pointed tip. Also, draw the mouth.
  2. Pipe the blue icing for making the blue colored adorable minion dress. Let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. If you are not running short of time then instead of store bought cookies, you can bake cookies at home and decorate it to give a minion touch. Making these cookies took less than an hour and they turned out too adorable to eat.

In fact, you can use them as favors also, just put them in a bag and seal them too. You can also attach a tag to each sealed bag and staple that on the top as shown in the picture. Write down a fun message for the guest and hand it over.
