Despicable Me 3 is out in theatres and today we have a fabulous Minion Oreo Cookie tutorial to share. Sylvia and I love Minions. We have several blog posts on minions, from our love of minions to minion toy reviews.
They are adorable and cheeky characters and we enjoy watching the Despicable Me and Minions movies over and over. I am excited to share this post, I hope you enjoy it and get some great ideas.
This would be great for cookie decorating or a Minion themed party.

How to Make Minion Oreo Cookies
Open the box of Oreos and unwrap them. Set aside.
Pour the yellow candy melts into a small measuring cup or bowl.
Follow the package directions for melting.
Use E-Z Thin to thin out the candy melts or a bit of Crisco.
Add a small amount at a time.
You want your candy melts to be a consistency that you can dip your Oreos into.
Dip one end of your Oreo into the melted yellow candy melts. You’ll want to coat a little more than half the Oreo.
Pull the Oreo out of the candy melts and allow some of the excess to drip off.
Place the Oreo on a wire cooling rack. After the excess has dripped off, move to a sheet of wax paper to dry.
Repeat step 2 with the blue candy melts.
Dip the other end of your Oreo into the melted blue candy melts. You’ll want to coat about ⅓ of the cookie.
Pull the Oreo out of the candy melts and allow some of the excess to drip off. Place the Oreo on a wire cooling rack. After the excess has dripped off, move to a sheet of wax paper to dry.
Repeat step 2 with the black candy melts.
Pour the black candy melts into a decorating bag or ziplock bag with the smallest candy melts decorating tip attached.
Pipe black lines onto your Minion.
If you would like to add grey to the goggles, you’ll need to add white candy melts to another batch of black candy melts and prepare a second decorating bag.
Pipe circles of black (or grey if you make a batch) onto the black lines. While the candy melts are still wet, add the candy eyes.
Pipe on some fun faces with the black candy melts and add buttons onto their overalls.
You can also add some hair to have fun with these and let your little ones help.
