Minion Milano Cookies

June 30: Movie Premiere of “”Despicable Me 3” (2017)

The Minions are back with more mayhem in the movie, “Despicable Me 3”, which premieres today. Those scene-stealing stars had their own eponymous movie a few years ago and we made Minion Twinkie cupcakes for the occasion (and for many parties and potlucks as well). This time, instead of Twinkies, we used Milano cookies to make a quick and easy despicably delightful dessert. Make Minion Milano cookies as a fun food to celebrate Gru’s crew of Minions and his family’s return in the third film of the “Despicable Me” franchise.



  • Milano cookies
  • Blue confectioner’s coating, candy melts or white chocolate tinted blue
  • Black tube icing
  • Candy eyeballs


Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Set aside. Unwrap the Milano cookies. Melt the blue confectioner’s coating in a deep bowl. Dip the end of a cookie halfway. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Continue dipping the rest of the cookies. Place in the refrigerator to allow the coating to harden. Remove from the refrigerator.

With a small round decorator’s tip, use the black icing tube to pipe in details of the Minions, such as the hair and eye pieces. Press a candy eyeball onto the black icing while still wet. Finish the mouth details. Vary the expressions of the Minions. Arrange cookies on a serving tray.


  • Minion Mayhem is a simulator ride attraction at Universal Studios in Florida and Hollywood. Japan is set to open one as well.
  • Make Minion Twinkie cupcakes to add to the Minion Milano cookies for a despicable dessert table.
