How to make Minion Twinkie Cupcakes

Ingredients

You will need the following ingredients to make the Minion Twinkie Cupcakes:

  • 12 cupcakes (flavor of your choice) cooked and cooled
  • 1 16 oz can of white frosting (if you are feeling adventurous you can make your own)
  • 1 bottle black food coloring
  • 1 bottle blue food coloring 
  • 6 twinkies
  • 20 white smarties, or similar round white candies (you may use more or less depending on your Minions)
  • 1 toothpick per helper 

Minion Twinkie Cupcakes Directions

Follow these easy steps to make your Minion Twinkie Cupcakes:

  • In a small bowl combine 3/4 of the white frosting and blue food coloring. Add small amounts of blue food coloring as you are mixing till you get the color you want. 
  • In another small bowl combine the rest of the white frosting and the black food coloring. Keep adding the black food coloring as you are mixing till you get a dark black color.
  • Cut the Twinkies in half.
  • Frost each of the cooled cupcakes with the blue frosting, this is the Minions pants! Cute right!
  • Take a Twinkie and place it cut side down on the top and center of the blue frosting. Repeat this with each cupcake. Tip: At this time place in the fridge to let frosting harden a little bit.
  • Take the Smarties and dip one side into the black frosting, then place them on the upper half of the Twinkie. This will be the Minions eyes. Be creative and have fun, some have two, some have one!
  • Take the toothpick and dunk into the black frosting. Now make a dot on each Smartie. This will be the eyeball! 
  • Now take the toothpick, dunk it in the black frosting and it's time to get creative! Make a mouth on each of the Twinkies. Happy, sad, smiling, laughing, you decide!
  • Last step, it's time to make a strap for the googles! Once again take some more black frosting on the tooth pick, and draw a strap around the Minions head! 

Now your Minions are complete! They are fun to make, and yummy to eat! Hope you enjoyed this recipe!
