I am surprised I have not been asked to make Minion cake pops before, seeing as how popular these little guys are. They are pretty cute! I am even somewhat embarrassed to say I have not seen any of the Despicable me movies or the new Minion movie. I am sure I will someday, and then I will understand.
These might be my favorite cake pops I have made to date, and that is saying a lot because I have liked most of them. They looked so much like the characters and I love cake pops with lots of details, and man did these have details.
I followed Bakerella’s directions for most of the cake pop, but made a few tweaks.
The main difference was the goggle strap. I used black molding chocolate instead of black licorice. Not everyone likes, well no one really likes, black licorice so I figured this would be a better choice and it did not require me to buy anything else.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to make these :)
Take a look at the final product below…
Have you guys seen the movies? Am I completely missing out on something? Let me know :)
